Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick And Tich
Spoken: Full fathom five, on the seabed she lies, the Antoinette. 1. C F C I sailed with the dawn and the wind blew free F C 'cross the bright shining sea, Em G F G and it filled the sails of my Antoinette. C Good-bye home and the one I love, F G put my faith in the sky and the stars above, F 'cause there's nothing in this world I wouldn't bet C on my Antoinette ! 2. C F C She carries her name, and for you I'll try F C to be strong or I'll die, Em G F G and I'll find my grave in the rolling waves. C Ride on baby, don't you let me down, F G ocean's big and you don't wanna see me drown. F C But a bitter rain begins to beat the deck of the Antoinette. Bridge: G See the rain come lashing, C there's a sudden flash of lightning on the foam, hold on, Antoinette ! G The ocean rounds in fury C on a man who fights against it all alone, keep on, Antoinette ! F E She goes down with a sigh and with her his last cry, F G Antoinette ! Antoinette ! C F C 3. C F C Dawn breaks on the sea, and the long dark night F C now gives way to the light, Em G F G and no trace remains of the Antoinette. C Deep she lies on the ocean floor, F G far away from the girl who waits by the shore. F C Does she know her love is buried in the wreck of the Antoinette? Outro: C F Well, deep she lies, deep she lies, C F C Antoinette ! Antoinette !
