[Verse 1]
(slow, 3/4 time) C C G G C C G G
Well, I’ve drunk to drown on every ocean I’ve been
C C G G Dm Dm G G
Lake Tanganyika, where the crocodiles swim
(fast 4/4) C C G G C C G G
Halifax, Nova Scotia to Van Diemen’s land
C C G G Dm Dm G G
Well I drank with the Sultan down the Suez Canal

[Chorus]
C C G G
Cause every dog has it’s day
C C G G
Like every woman, she gets her own way

And if there’s a ship that sails tonight
F F C C G G C C G G
I’ll captain that, too... just to be there with you

[Verse 2]
C C G G C C G G
Well there was old Jerry Rooney, who was mad as a mule
C C G G Dm Dm G G
Spillblood Maloney had a head like one, too
C C G G C C G G
That night on the bridge with my shovel in hand
C C G G Dm Dm G G
Well he threatened to kill me I’m sure he picked the wrong man

[Chorus]
C C G G
Cause every dog has it’s day
C C G G
Like every woman, she gets her own way
C C G G
And if there’s a ship that sails tonight
F F C C G G C C G G
I’ll captain that, too... just to be there with you

[Verse 3]

And if there’s a ship that sails tonight
F F C C G G C C G G
I’ll captain that, too... just to be there with you

[Verse 4]
(slow 3/4) C C G G C C G G
Now I love the sea, and she wants me back
C C G G Dm Dm G G
So I leave this ol’ harbor with the wind at me back
(very slow) C C G G C C G G
Goodbye mother Theresa I hope the kids settle down
C C G G Dm Dm G G
I must head for the Chinas Pray to God I don’t drown

[Chorus] (x3)
C C G G
Cause every dog has it’s day
C C G G
Like every woman, she gets her own way
C C G G
And if there’s a ship that sails tonight
F F C C G G C C G G
I’ll captain that, too... just to be there with you
