    Em    G            Asus2
By day I sell them my soul
   Am/C        G
I work like a mole
G           Asus2/F#  B7/F#
Under the shop
    Em          G           Asus2     Am/C
By night I’ll drink in the cold   hole
     B7/F#       B7         Em  G
But down in the nine-foot drop

    B7        B7/F#   Em
By day I’m a company mule
     Em           Am
The wage slaving fool
       Am             B7  B7/F#
They chain up like a dog
    Em            G        Asus2
By night I’ll be sailing away
        Am   Asus2/F#  B7
On my stool
      B7/F#     Em  G  C/G
On a river of grog
   B7/F#     Em  G  C/G  B7/F#   B7/F#   B7
A river of grog

      Em
Two drinks
    G          Asus2
In my line of sight
      Am/C         G
But that can’t be right
    G           Asus2/F#  B7
I know it’s untrue
Em          G        Asus2
I’m seeing double tonight
              Am/C    B7/F#       Fill-2  B7  B/F#
But there can only be one of you
      B7        B7/F#         Em
I’ve loaded my pockets with stones
    Em      Am
To bury my bones
        Am           B7   B7
In the mud of the bog
    Em        G
So let me go sailing
  Asus2   Am/C  Asus2/F#  B7
Away on my own
      B7/F#     Em  G  C/G
On a river of grog
   B7/F#     Em  Em/B  Em  Em
A river of grog

If you miss me when I go

It’s been a barrel of fun
Am         Am7
I’m gonna miss you

When I go

But down in this bottle

There’s a song for me waiting I know
