Am
 We are two mariners
Our ship's sole survivors
In this belly of a whale

E7
 It's ribs, our ceiling beams
It's guts, our carpeting
                                Am
I guess we have some time to kill
Am
You may not remember me
I was a child of three
                        E7
And you, a lad of eighteen
E7
 But I remember you
And I will relate to you
                         Am
How our histories interweave

BRIDGE
F
At the time you were
                  Am
A rake and a roustabout
F
Spending all your money
                  E7
On the whores and hounds
 F  E
(Oh, oh)

VERSE
Am
You had a charming air
All cheap and debonair
                            E7
My widowed mother found so sweet
E7
 And so she took you in
Her sheets still warm with him
                                  Am
Now filled with filth and foul disease

BRIDGE
   F
As time wore on you proved
                       Am
A debt-ridden drunken mess
F
Leaving my mother
                   E7
A poor consumptive wretch
 F   E
(Oh, oh)

VERSE
    (use acrdn+bass tab)
Am
 And then you disappeared
Your gambling arrears
                          E7
The only thing you left behind
E7
 And then the magistrate
Reclaimed our small estate
                            Am
And my poor mother lost her mind

BRIDGE
F
Then, one day in spring
                      Am
My dear sweet mother died
       F
But, before she did
                                E7
I took her hand as she, dying, cried:
 F   E
(Oh, oh)

 Dm
"Find him, find him
Tie him to a pole and break
    Am
His fingers to splinters
Drag him to a hole until he
Dm
Wakes up naked
Clawing at the ceiling
       E7     F E 
Of his grave"

Am
 It took me fifteen years
To swallow all my tears
                           E7
Among the urchins in the street
E7
 Until a priory
Took pity and hired me
                               Am
To keep their vestry nice and neat

BRIDGE
     F
But, never once in the employ
                Am
Of these holy men
    F
Did I ever once turn my mind
                      E7
From the thought of revenge
 F   E
(Oh, oh)

  "oh, oh --- one night..."
VERSE
Am
One night I overheard
The prior exchanging words
                                 E7
With a penitent whaler from the sea
E7
 The captain of his ship
Who matched you toe to tip
                           Am
Was known for a wonton cruelty

BRIDGE
    F
The following day
I shipped to sea
            Am
With a privateer
    F
And in the whistle
Of the wind
               E7
I could almost hear
 F   E
(Oh, oh)

CHORUS
 Dm
"Find him, find him
Tie him to a pole and break
    Am
His fingers to splinters
Drag him to a hole until he
Dm
Wakes up naked
Clawing at the ceiling
       E7     F E 
Of his grave"
C                          G7
 There is one thing I must say to you
C                       G7
 As you sail across the sea
Am                             Em
 Always your mother will watch over you
F                          E7
 As you avenge this wicked deed"

Am
 And then, that fateful night
We had you in our sight
                       E/G#
After twenty months at sea
Your starboard flank abeam
I was getting my muskets clean
                               Am
When came this rumbling from beneath

BRIDGE
    F
The ocean shook
The sky went black
                 Am
And the captain quailed
      F
And before us grew
The angry jaws
           E
Of a giant whale
 F  E
(Oh...)

VERSE
Am
 Don't know how I survived
The crew all was chewed alive
                                 E7
I must have slipped between his teeth
E7
 But, oh, what providence
What divine intelligence
That you should survive
           Am
As well as me

BRIDGE
   F
It gives my heart great joy
                           Am
To see your eyes fill with fear
   F
So lean in close
And I will whisper
                      E7
The last words you'll hear
 F   E
(Oh, oh)
