Whoa Sailor Recorded by Hank Thompson Written by Hank Thompson and Walt McCoy
C G7 I'll tell you about my night on shore C G7 If you will lend an ear D7 I stepped into a cabaret G7 To get myself a beer
C A pretty girl sat all alone G7 And needed company D7 But when I got close this gal arose G7 This is what she said to me
C F Now she said whoa sailor be careful what you do
In your eye there's a gleam and to me C A7 It seems your just like all the rest D7 With a wolfish eye and a line that's sly G7 C Then a sailor's at his best
G7 Now look here babe you've got me wrong C G7 I'm not that kind of guy D7 I just got back from across the sea G7 Where there are no gals awry
C Now let me talk to you a while G7 I'm sure you'll see my way D7 When I went to spout she turned about G7 This is what she had to say
C F Now she said whoa sailor I've heard that line before
You'll look into my eyes and tell me lies C A7 And tales of the seven seas D7 But a sailor's full of that kinda bull G7 C So don't hand it to me
G7 Oh pretty girl you've let me down C G7 You've broken my poor heart D7 And oh how it hurt when you had to spout G7 That last sad remark
C I said I think I have a drink G7 And I broke out six month's pay D7 With a wide open eyes she breathed a sigh G7 This time she had to say
C F Now she said oh sailor I think you've won my heart
Well she was right neat and she sure was sweet C A7 But I knew she was that sort D7 But she's not all to blame 'cause it's a sailor's aim G7 C To have a girl in every port
