Daddy Was A Sailor
Marina & The Diamonds
Hi, guys. I know this is not perfect. The intro and the first part of the verses were quite hard to figure out and I'm sure that there's a better solution for it. I just didn't find it out :D So if you know how to play it better, please, contact me ! Also for critisism, suggestions, requests or anything you want to tell me, feel free to do so, for example in my comments. So I really love Marina, she is a fantastic artist and I'm sure I'm going to do a lot more of her. I hope you're having fun with it. :) No capo. Dm Dm Dm F C Dm Dm Grandpa was a miner, and he gave me my black art, Dm Glittered rivers of black coal-dust tore our country apart, C F Covered in coal-dust, waking up too early in the morning, C F D Covered in coal-dust, waiting for the moment the canary sings. Dm Mama was a mermaid and a carnaby street gal, Dm She could have been a model, but she spent her life mopping up spilt milk, C Covered in sea salt, would he, could he be home F D when the stars came out to party, C Covered in sea salt, yeah I know it was my fault, F D but he always ran away 'cause he didn't want me. C F D Gm Oh, Daddy was a sailor, and he gave me a black heart, C F D Gm Daddy was a sailor, the only man that could tear me apart C F Dm Gm Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, C F D Daddy, Daddy, Da-a-ddy. Dm Sister dances salsa, and she cha-cha's like a Queen, Dm F I was a non-believer when she told me I was free, C F Aunty Emmy was a medium, oh she worked the Ouija board. C F D Seeking out the lost souls, and taking them back to the Lord. C F D Gm Oh, but Daddy still was a sailor, and he gave me a black heart, C F D Gm Daddy was a sailor, the only man that could tear me apart C F Dm Gm Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, C F Dm Gm Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, C F Dm Gm Ahh, Ahh, Ahh, Ahh, C Gm F Ahh, Ahh a.
