My husband went to sea, six long months ago
F F C C G G
His fortune for to find and I long to see him so,
C C G G
And one fine day I met a sailor out on leave,
F F C C G G
He'd met my husband dear and this letter he recieved.

G G F F C C
My dear-est wife,

C C F F C C G G
I think we have been at sea for a bit to long my dear,
C C F F C C G G C C
I now feel wary as the crew calls me Mary and I sleep each night in fear,
C C F F C C G G
Yesterday I caught 'em staring at my bottom, I will come back when I can,
C C F F C C G G C C
I love to fornicate for sex is great, but not with another man.

C C G G
Several weeks had past, I could not remain merry
F F C C G G
Because of lived in fear, For my husbands cherry,
C C G G
And to my great relief, good tidings for this day,
F F C C G G
I met another sailor and a second letter came.

G G F F C C
My dear-est wife,

C C F F C C G G
I know that we have been at sea for far to long I dread,
C C F F C C G G C C
For the pious pastor and the fat quartermaster, sleep in the same bunk bed
C C F F C C G G
Oh Red-headed Roy the cabin boy, locked himself below,
C C F F C C G G C C
I'll leave when I can, when we next find land, and I'll find my way back home

C C G G
Several months had passed my passion had a burn,
F F C C G G
To see my husband dear awaiting his return,
C C G G
When much to my surprise there came another boat,
F F C C G G
And another sailor, (Yahoo) ferrying another note

G G F F C C
My dear-est wife,

C C F F C C G G
I think that we will remain at sea for a few months true to tell
C C F F C C G G C C
For the second mate, thinks I'm great and we hit it off quite well
C C F F C C G G
In a drunken mist I couldn't resist when the rum passed round I went
C C F F C C G G C C G G
Oh the sex is rife in a sailors life if your indiscriminent

C C F F G G
My hus-band dear,

C C F F C C G G
I think that thee should stay at sea, for the streuth is truth I tell,
C C F F C C G G C C
For on your return the house I'll burn and I'll send you straight to hell
C C F F C C G G
So all young wives and newly wives do heed this sorry song,
C C F F C C G G C C
You cant compete with the men of the fleet, When your husbands away too long
