      G                                          
I'll sail upon the Dog Star, I'll sail upon the Dog Star,
                      D
And then pursue the morning,
                                     G
And then pursue, and then pursue the morning

                D               Em          D       A                Bm
I'll chase the moon 'till it be noon, I'll chase the moon 'till it be noon
                     D         A         D
But I'll make, I'll make her leave her horning.

      D                               G   
I'll climb the frosty mountain, I'll climb the frosty mountain
      C
And there I'll coin the weather;
      Am       D       (G)      C         G       C       D      B
I'll tear the rainbow from the sky, I'll tear the rainbow from the sky,
       (G C)    Em       Em/B B Em   (D Em)
And tie,    and tie both ends together.
   
      C                      G             Am                      G
The stars pluck from their orbs, too, the stars pluck from their orbs, too,
      C       Am E7 Am    (D E Am)
And crowd them in my budget!
    Am            D7 (G)    (Em)   Am (D)
And whether I'm a roaring boy,   a roaring boy,
    G (C)    Am      D7       G
Let all, let all the nations judge it.

[Purcell from D'Urfey. Music (1688), from Incidental Music to A Fool's Preferment -or- The Three Dukes of Dunstable, no. 6.]
