Transpose:
[Verse 1]

AmFrom Tortuga's port we put to sea
GAnd sailed for sixteen days
AmIn the biggest storm I'd ever seen
G AmWe almost lost our way
AmWhen a call came from a deckhand
G“Boys, I think she’s going down
AmBut don’t you fear
GThere’s enough rum here
G AmTo drink until we drown!”
Ho! [Chorus]
AmWhat shall we do with a drunken sailor?
GWhat shall we do with a drunken sailor?
AmWhat shall we do with a drunken sailor?
G AmEar-lie in the morning
AmHoo-ray and up she rises (Hoo-ray)
GHoo-ray and up she rises (Hoo-ray)
AmHoo-ray and up she rises (Hoo-ray)
G AmEar-lie in the morning
[Verse 2]
AmSo this deckhand grabbed a barrel
GBroke the seal and took a swig
Am And soon their screams turned into songs
G AmTheir panicked work turned into jigs
AmThe first mate bellowed orders
GEver trying to save their skins
Am“Any drunken retch the captain catch
G AmHe’ll beat all limb from limb!”
Ho! [Chorus]
AmWhat shall we do with a drunken sailor?
GWhat shall we do with a drunken sailor?
AmWhat shall we do with a drunken sailor?
G AmEar-lie in the morning
AmHoo-ray and up she rises (Hoo-ray)
GHoo-ray and up she rises (Hoo-ray)
AmHoo-ray and up she rises (Hoo-ray)
G AmEar-lie in the morning
[Verse 3]
AmEvery man continued drinking
GAll their duties long forgot
AmThey were deaf to every order
G Am‘Til they heard a pistol shot
Am The captain stood on fo'c'stle
GSwung the cat above his head
Am“Back to yer post, or by my ghost
G AmYe’ll wish that ye were dead!”
[Chorus]
AmWhat shall we do with a drunken sailor?
GWhat shall we do with a drunken sailor?
AmWhat shall we do with a drunken sailor?
G AmEar-lie in the morning
AmHoo-ray and up she rises (Hoo-ray)
GHoo-ray and up she rises (Hoo-ray)
AmHoo-ray and up she rises (Hoo-ray)
G AmEar-lie in the morning
[Verse 4]
AmEvery drunk received a beating
GSome of the drunker managed two
AmThe captain kept an eye
G AmUntil he’d sobered up his crew
AmHe then retired to quarters
GPut the rum upon his shelf
AmSat in his seat, put up his feet
G AmAnd drank the rest himself!
[Chorus]
AmWhat shall we do with a drunken sailor?
GWhat shall we do with a drunken sailor?
AmWhat shall we do with a drunken sailor?
G AmEar-lie in the morning
AmHoo-ray and up she rises (Hoo-ray)
GHoo-ray and up she rises (Hoo-ray)
AmHoo-ray and up she rises (Hoo-ray)
G AmEar-lie in the morning
[Outro]
AmPut him in the longboat ‘til he’s sober
AmShave his belly with a rusty razor
AmThrow him in the hold with the captain’s daughter
G AmEar-lie in the morning
