 Would you walk the North Sea floor, to Belgium from Eng-land?

Chorus 1:

C         C/G       Am
 Bring me word of a banjo man,
       F             C    C/G  C  C/G
With a tattoo on his hand.

C          C/G     C   C/G   F            C     C/G  C  C/G
 "If'n you met our fee then, certainly we would.
C       C/G    C       C/G     F                  C    C/G  C  C/G
 If you cast a looking-glass u-pon the scallopped sand;

Chorus 2:

 You'll have word o' this banjo man,
       F             C      C/G  C  C/G
With a tattoo on his hand".

C      C/G    C            C/G   F         C      C/G  C  C/G 
 Maybe its be-cause you're astro-logically shaped.
C         C/G      C       C/G     F             C   C/G  C  C/G
 Converse with the herring shoals, as I know you can,

With a tattoo on his hand.

The eldest of the star-fish spoke, after a sigh;
C           C/G    C         C/G      F              C    C/G  C  C/G
 "Youthfull as you are young man, you have a 'Wisdom Eye';
C       C/G      C      C/G           F             C     C/G  C  C/G 
 Surely you must know a looking-glass, is made from sand?

Chorus 4:

C            C/G      Am
 These young-fish are fooling you,
  F               C     C/G  C  C/G
A-bout this banjo man."

 "Come then aged star-fish, riddle me no more.
C         C/G  C   C/G F               C    C/G  C  C/G
 For news I am wea-ry, and my heart is sore.
    C      C/G    C   C/G    F              C   C/G  C  C/G
All on the silent sea-shore, help me if you can,

Chorus 5:

C        C/G Am           F             C    C/G  C  C/G
 Tell to me, if you know, of this banjo man."

"All through the seven o-ceans, I am a star most famed.
C      C/G     C      C/G       F           C      C/G  C  C/G
 Many 'leggys' have I lost, and many have I gained.
C           C/G        C      C/G      F               C    C/G  C  C/G
 Strange to say, quite recent-ly, I've been to Fleming Land,

Chorus 6:

C       C/G     Am              F              C   C/G  C  C/G
 And if you are courteous, I'll tell you all I can.

"You have my full at-ten-tion", I answered him with glee,
    C       C/G        C     C/G          F             C   C/G  C  C/G
His brother stars were twink-ling, in the sky above the sea.
C   C/G   C          C/G     F               C    C/G  C  C/G
 So I sat there with rapt at-tention, on the sand,

Chorus 7:

C     C/G     Am           F            C   C/G  C  C/G
 Very anxious for to hear, of the banjo man.

C        C/G       C        C/G   F                   C    C/G  C  C/G
 "I have seen this tattooed hand, through a ship port-hole.
C         C/G    C      C/G   F                    C    C/G  C  C/G
 Steaming on the watery main, through the waves so cold.
C          C/G      C      C/G F            C     C/G  C  C/G
 Heard his tinkling banjo, and his voice so grand.

Chorus 8:

    C        C/G     Am          F                  C     C/G  C  C/G
But you must come to Belgium, to shake his tattooed hand."

Verse 9:

C        C/G     C     C/G F              C   C/G  C  C/G
 "Gladly would I come, oh, gladly would I go.
C      C/G    C       C/G F              C    C/G  C  C/G
 Had I not my work to do, and my face to show.
C     C/G      C         C/G       F            C   C/G  C  C/G
 I re-joice to know he's well, but I must go in-land,

Chorus 9:

C          C/G     Am                 F            C    C/G  C  C/G
 Thank you for the words you brought, of the banjo man."

Verse 10:

  C        C/G      C       C/G      F                   C    C/G  C  C/G
I walked a-long the evening sand, as charcoal clouds did shift.
   C       C/G C    C   C/G   F             C     C/G  C  C/G
Re-vealing the moon shi-ning, on the pebble drift.
       C       C/G   C     C/G       F        C    C/G  C  C/G
Contem-plating every other word, the starfish said;

Chorus 10:

C        C/G         Am                F              C   C/G  C  C/G
 Whistly winds, they filled my dreams, in my dreaming bed.
