The Bonnie Lady Lyrics And Chords
The lyrics and chords fit the Irish Rovers’ from their album ‚The Boys Come Rollin’ Home (1992). Use a capo on the 1st fret to change the key to D# major.
All you (D)sea barren (G)men you’re (D)bound to sail again
Far away from your mooring down in (A)Portsmouth
With your (D)mast on (G)high and (D)wavin’ goodbye
To the lassies you (A)left on (D)shore.
I’ve a (A)fine strong crew and I (G)tell them what to (D)do
I’m the (A)captain of the ship The Boonie (G)La(D)dy.
She my joy and my (G)pride and she’s (D)twenty meters wide
And they call her the (A)ship The Bonnie (G)La(D)dy.
So (D)haul down the (G)riggin’ for we’re (D)bound to sail away
Across the raggin’ ocean we’re (A)sailin’ out today
And (D)if we do re(G)turn you’re (D)bound to hear us say
We’ll be going to (A)sea once (D)more.
We’ll my (D)shipmates and (G)me we (D)sail from sea to sea
With the wind a whistlin’ through the (A)sails
Though the (D)crew gets no (G)rest they (D)think that I’m the best
Cause I bail them one and (A)all out of (D)jail.
We’ve a (D)vast haul of (G)rum a (D)cargo we will run
From along the far off shores of (A)Haiti
With the (D)brisk salt (G)air just (D)blowin’ through me hair
At the wheel of the (A)ship The Bonnie (D)Lady.
