Wallerman Chords by The longest John

[Verse 1]
Cm There once was a ship that put to sea Fm Cm The name of the ship was the Billy of Tea Cm The winds blew up, her bow dipped down G Cm O b-low, my bully boys, blow [Chorus]
Ab Eb Soon may the Wellerman come Fm Cm To bring us sugar and tea and rum Ab Eb One day, when the tonguin’ is done, G Cm We’ll take our leave and go [Verse 2]
Cm She'd not been two weeks from shore Fm Cm When down on her a right whale bore Cm The captain called all hands and swore G Cm He'd take that whale in tow, huh! [Chorus]
Ab Eb Soon may the Wellerman come Fm Cm To bring us sugar and tea and rum Ab Eb One day, when the tonguin’ is done, G Cm We’ll take our leave and go [Interlude]
Ab Eb Da da da-da dat da Fm Cm Da-da dat da da-da da dat da Ab Eb Da da da-da dat da G Cm Da-da dat da dat da [Verse 3]
Cm Before the boat had hit the water Fm Cm The wha-le's tail came up and caught her Cm All hands to the side, harpooned and fought her G Cm When she dived down low [Chorus]
Ab Eb Soon may the Wellerman come Fm Cm To bring us sugar and tea and rum Ab Eb One day, when the tonguin’ is done, G Cm We’ll take our leave and go [Verse 4]
Cm No line was cut, no whale was freed Fm Cm The captain's mind was not of greed Cm And he belonged to the whaleman's creed G Cm She took that ship in tow [Chorus]
Ab Eb Soon may the Wellerman come Fm Cm To bring us sugar and tea and rum Ab Eb One day, when the tonguin’ is done, G Cm We’ll take our leave and go [Interlude]
Ab Eb Da da da-da dat da Fm Cm Da-da dat da da-da da dat da Ab Eb Da da da-da dat da G Cm Da-da dat da dat da [Verse 5]
Cm For forty days, or even more Fm Cm The line went slack, then tight once more Cm All boats were lost (there were only four) G Cm But still that whale did go [Chorus]
Ab Eb Soon may the Wellerman come Fm Cm To bring us sugar and tea and rum Ab Eb One day, when the tonguin’ is done, G Cm We’ll take our leave and go [Verse 6]
Cm As far as I've heard, the fight's still on Fm Cm The line's not cut and the whale's not gone Cm The Wellerman makes his regular call Fm Cm To encourage the Captain, crew, and all [Chorus]
Ab Eb Soon may the Wellerman come Fm Cm To bring us sugar and tea and rum Ab Eb One day, when the tonguin’ is done, G Cm We’ll take our leave and go [Outro]
Ab Eb Soon may the Wellerman come Fm Cm To bring us sugar and tea and rum Ab Eb One day, when the tonguin’ is done, G Cm We’ll take our leave and go
