No chord
    
Standard guitar tuning:

No capo

Fi F D

I've included a '/' to give a better understanding of the rhythm. It means play the same chord as previously noted. On the recording, the last word of each verse is 'drowned out' by the first 'Di' but I tend to actually sing it and cut out the first 'Di'... eg.... '....captain's leg di di di ....di de di ...di' Also, I can not work out exactly what they sing in the line '....smashing their wee boat was sat a gale'. Some people sing it as '...crashing on their small boat like a gale' but that is definitely NOT what is sung on the recording.

Intro
