                More GBS.....I love it

Capo: 3rd fret

Intro:  D G D A

D                  G
Ships may come and ships may go
    A                   D
As long as the sea does roll
D                       G
Each sailor lad just like his dad
    A                   D
He loves the flowing bowl
D               G
A trip ashore he does adore
        D                  A
With a girl who's nice and round
When the money's gone
It's the same old song
        A               D
Get up Jack John sit down

      D                     G
Come along, come along, You jolly brave boys,
        D                    A
There's lots of grog in the jar
        D               G
We'll plough the briny ocean
           A            D G D A 
With the jolly roving tar

Jack comes in, it's then he'll steer
To some old boarding house
They'll welcome him with run and gin,
And feed him on pork scouse
He'll lend and spend and not offend
Till he's lying drunk on the ground
But when


Jackie then ahh then he'll sail 
Bound out for Newfoundland
All the ladies fair in Placentia there
They love that sailor man.
He'll go to shore out on a tear
He'll buy some girl a gown.
But when


When Jack gets old and weatherbeat,
Too old to roam about,
They'll let him stop in some rum shop
Till eight bells calls him out.
Then he'll raise his eyes up to the skies,
Sayin' ``Boys, we're homeward bound.''
But when
