                Top o' the morning to ye!  This is my first tab I've submitted; it's a
ridiculously simple song by the greatest, most high-energy band ever.  As such,
it must be played furiously (except for a few parts for contrast) with lightning
quick down-up strumming.  I'll add a few notes on dynamics, but this is quite a
simple song.  Enjoy it!

Verse 1:
(slow, 3/4 time)     C    G                       C     G
Well, I’ve drunk to drown    on every ocean I’ve been
           C    G                       Dm     G
Lake Tanganyika,  where the crocodiles swim

Well I drank with the Sultan   down the Suez Can*l


Chorus:
             C            G
Cause every dog has it’s day
            C                       G
Like every woman, she gets her own way
                  C                 G
And if there’s a ship that sails tonight

Spillblood Maloney   had a head like one, too
                    C     G                    C    G
That night on the bridge    with my shovel in hand
                       C       G                              Dm    G
Well he threatened to kill me    I’m sure he picked the wrong man

Well there was mutiny in Lagos    aboard the mean ship Skondi
                        C     G                           Dm
Ten or twelve days in prison    till the bastards set me free

Verse 4:

(slow 3/4)      C   G                   C    G
Now I love the sea,   and she wants me back

So I leave this ol’ harbor   with the wind at me back

Goodbye mother Theresa   I hope the kids settle down
                      C    G                        Dm     G
I must head for the Chinas    Pray to God I don’t drown


CHORUS X3

End on C chord


That's the whole song.  Ideally you'd have drums, fiddle, and mandolin to fill
out the sound a bit, but this is a wonderful song as it is.  Remember to pick up
the pace for the ending choruses, and have fun with it!
