Verse
There
once
was
a
ship
that
put
to
sea
The
name
of
the
ship
was
the
Billy
O'
Tea
The
winds
blew
up
her
bow
dipped
down
Oh
blow
my
bully
boys
blow
Chorus
Soon
may
the
Eb7 Wellerman
come
To
G7 bring
us
sugar
and
C7 tea
and
rum
One
day
when
the
C7 tonguing
is
done
We'll
take
our
leave
and
C7 go
She'd
not
been
two
C7 weeks
from
shore
When
down
on
her
a
C7 right
whale
bore
The
captain
called
all
C7 hands
and
swore
He'd
take
that
whale
in
C7 tow
Soon
may
the
Eb7 Wellerman
come
To
F7 bring
us
sugar
and
C7 tea
and
rum
One
day
when
the
C7 tonguing
is
done
We'll
take
our
leave

Verse
G7
Before
the
boat
had
G7 hit
the
water
The
whale's
tail
came
G7 up
and
caught
her
All
hands
to
the
side
G7 harpooned
and
fought
her
When
she
dived
down
C7 low
Soon
may
the
Eb7 Wellerman
come
To
bring
us
sugar
and
C7 tea
and
rum
One
day
when
the
D7 tonguing
is
done
We'll
take
our
leave
and
D7 go
No
line
was
cut
no
D7 whale
was
freed
The
captain's
mind
was
D7 not
of
greed
And
he
belonged
to
the
D7 Whaleman's
creed
She
took
that
ship
in
G7 tow

Verse
C
For
forty
days
or
G7 even
more
The
line
went
slack
then
G7 tight
once
more
All
boats
were
lost
there
were
G7 only
four
But
still
that
whale
did
C7 go
Soon
may
the
C7 Wellerman
come
To
Eb7 bring
us
sugar
and
C7 tea
and
rum
One
day
when
the
Eb7 tonguing
is
done
We'll
take
our
leave
and
Eb7 go
As
far
as
I've
heard
the
Eb7 fight's
still
on
The
line's
not
cut
and
the
Eb7 whale's
not
gone
The
Wellerman
makes
his
G7 regular
call
Chorus
To
encourage
the
captain
C7 crew
and
all
Soon
