Chords and lyrics for Sea Shanty by The Pogues

 
Dear  
C 
dirty London in the pouring rain
 
I  
C 
wish to God I was back on the sea a
F 
gain
 
Though  
C 
that belongs to the world of never will be
 
there was  
C 
never a wilder bastard than me on the  
F 
sea
 
I
C 
could fuck a
F 
ll the whores in damnation me boys
 
Thoug
C 
h they wriggled and  
F 
hollered and made a great noise
 
Th
C 
en I’d drink ‘ti
F 
l I stank and then drink plenty more
 
And I  
C 
won’t go down  
F 
to the sea any more
 
Bu
C 
t if I had t
F 
en pounds then I’d raise a loud cheer
 
A
C 
nd I’d to
F 
ast all me neighbours both distant and dear
 
A
C 
nd I’d shoot
F 
back great belly-crippling buckets of beer
 
And a  
C 
pox and a curse  
F 
on the people round here
 
Wo
C 
uldn’t give  
F 
you the price of a half pint of beer
 
Wo
C 
uldn’t give  
F 
you the price of a cup of good cheer
 
A  
C 
pox 
 
a
F 
nd a curse on the people round here
