Hey all,

I'd love to do this song this weekend at a festival, but I can't find the chords to it anywhere and my ear isn't one for pickking out chords.

Thanks a ton in advance!

Rob - I don't think I know this one - at least don't recognize it by that title. Any chance you have more lyrics which might give us a shot at getting you the chords? Back in august when you posted looking for the chords I did a web search and found nothing based on the title you gave.

Wow. People noticed me..

Okay here are the words as listed in the Mudcat Archives:

Northerly bobbing up and down along with all the others Half of them have cousins in the town and the other half are brothers And tonight, tonight they're all ashore, when they've had enough to drink They'll drink some more and that's what the old town's for Tonight's the night for drinking

Southerly and it's blowing up a gale from Portsmouth down to Dover There they are all supping up the ale until the storm is over

Easterly and it's anybody's guess and a few of them are out there hauling But most of them, they take a little rest when they hear Lord Nelson calling

Westerly and nothing but the sound of a thousand seagulls screaming It's thirsty work that bobbing up and down so it's homeward bound they're steaming And tonight, tonight they're all ashore, when they've had enough to drink They'll drink some more Who ever said Lord Nelson's dead? Tonight's the night for drinking!
