Printable Version


From "Something Beautiful" (2004)
(Traditional, Arr. Great Big Sea)

Tab By: streeen (http://country.totaltabs.com)

Capo: 3rd Fret (Palm muted throughout)

INTRO:  [G]

[G]What ails you my daughter dear, your eyes are so dim
Have you had any sore sickness, or yet been sleeping with a man

I have not had any sore sickness, but I know what's ailing me
I thinking of my own true [C]love, He [G]plows the raging [C]sea
He [G]plows the raging [C] sea

[G]Be he a [Am]lord or a [C]duke or a [D]knight, Or a [G]man of [D]wealth or [G]fame
Or [G]is he one of my sailor [C]lads, Come [G]tell me now his [C]name

He [G]is no [Am]lord nor a [C]duke nor a [D]knight, Nor a [G]man of [D]wealth or [G]fame
He [G]is one of your sailor [C]lads and John [G]Barbour is his [C]name

Now [G]if John [Am]Barbour [C]is his [D]name, a lowly [G]sailor [D]man is [G]he
Yes [G]if John Barbor is his [C]name, then [G]hanged he will [C]be
Than [G]hanged he will [C] be

INSTRUMENTAL:   [G]   [D]   [G]   [C]  (x2)

The [G]king he [Am]calls his [C]sailors [D]all, By [G]one by [D]two by [G]three
John [G]Barbour was the first he [C]called, but the [G]last came was [C]he

[G]When he [Am]came a [C]trippin [D]down, He was [G]clothed in [D]all in [G]white
His [G]cheeks were like the roses [C]red and his [G]teeth were ivory [C]bright

He [G]paid their [Am]wages [C]with a [D]smile and John [G]Barbour [D]he did [G]see
he said if [G]I was a woman as I am a [C]man, my [G]bedfellow you would [C]be

[G]Will you [Am]marry my [C]daughter [D]Jane and [G]take her [D]by the [G]hand
[G]will you come and dine with [C]me and take [G]charge of all my [C]land

Yes [G]I will [Am]marry your [C]daughter [D]Jane and I'll [G]take her [D]by the [G]hand
And [G]I will come and dine with [C]you, But to [G]hell with all your [C]land

For if [G]you can [Am]give her [C]one gold [D]piece, Then [G]I can [D]give her [G]three
For [G]I am bold John Bar[C]bour and I [G]plow the raging [C]sea
I [G]plow the raging [C]sea
I [G]plow the raging [C]sea
