Hank Thompson - Whoa Sailor guitar chord

Hank Thompson

Whoa Sailor

(A) I'll tell you 'bout my night on shore, if you will lend an (E7th)ear

(B7th) I stepped into a cabaret to get myself a (E7th) beer

(A) A pretty girl sat all alone and needed compa (E7th) ny

(B7th) But when I got close, this gal arose, this is what she said to

(E7th) me

Now she said (A) whoa sailor be (D) careful what you do

In your eye there's a gleam and to me it seems your (A) just like all

the (F#) rest

With a (B7th) wolfish eye and a line that's sly, then a (E7th) salior's

at his (A) best.

(A) Now look here babe you've got me wrong , I'm not that sort of (E7th)


(B7th) I just got back from across the sea where there are no gals

(E7th) arie.

(A) Now let me talk to you a while I'm sure you'll see my (E7th) way

(B7th) When I went to spout she turned about this is what she had to

(E7th) say

Now she said(A) whoa sailor I've (D) heard that line before

You'll look into my eyes and tell me lies and (A) tales of the seven


But a (B7th) sailor's full of that kinda bull so (E7th) don't hand it to

(A) me

(A) Oh pretty girl you've let me down you've broken my poor(E7th) heart

(B7th) And oh how it hurt when you had to spout that last sad (E7th)


(A) I said I think I have a drink and I broke out six month's (E7th) pay

(B7th) With a wide open eyes she breathed a sigh this time she had to

(E7th) say

Now she said (A) oh sailor boy I (D) think you've won my heart

Well she was right neat and she sure was sweet but I knew she was that

(F#) sort.

But she's (B7th) not all to blame 'cause it's a sailor's aim to have a

(E7th) girl in every (A) port.
