[Verse]

D         C               G                  G C D
Countless years ago while lost in barren seas
D               C            G             G C D
There whispered murmurs of a bloody mutiny
D          C              G                   G C D
We took up arms and slain the officers of rank
D               C              G                     G C Am
And with swords drawn made the captain walk the plank

[Pre-Chorus]

Am                  Em
And as he fell down to the depths
   G              D
He swore a deadly curse
Am                    Em
"As sure as hell's my final fate
       G                D
You'll all soon die, or worse"
    Am            Em
Now as we stand before the gallows
G               D
Waiting for the end
     Am               Em              C D Em
I'll say these final words my friend

[Chorus]

   C                 G                D
At sunrise we'll all dance the hempen jig
Em                C               G            D
So raise up your pint of rum and take another swig
Em                    C          G              D
The curse of Captain Morgan has led us to this fate
   Em                 C                    G         D
So have no fear, and don't look back, the afterlife awaits

[Interlude]

Am Am G G Am Am G G D

[Verse]

D     C                  G                    G C D
We returned to port with sorrow in our chests
D       C               G                  G C D
An evil shadow followed us on every quest
D     C           G                  G C D
Never to feel joy again was our fate
D           C          G                     G C Am
Only misery and death, fear and burning hate

[Pre-Chorus]

Am                 Em
We broke the law, betrayed the code
G                   D
Now time is running out
Am          Em
An unforgivable offence
   G                D
Of that there is no doubt
    Am          Em
Now as we stand before the gallows
G           D
Waiting for the end
     Am              C              C D Em
I'll say these final words my friend

[Chorus]

   C                 G                D
At sunrise we'll all dance the hempen jig
Em               C               G            D
So raise up your pint of rum and take another swig
    Em               C          G              D
The curse of Captain Morgan has led us to this fate
   Em                C                    G         D
So have no fear, and don't look back, the afterlife awaits

[Bridge]

Strum once each chord

D               C
Many years have passed now
F                    C
Yet the curse still lives on
D                   Am
And now we rot in a black prison cell
F                    Em
Waiting for our true calling in hell


[Pre-Chorus]


Am                   Em
But for the lives we leave behind
      G                  D
Don't shed a tear, don't cry
    Am          Em
The only way to break this curse
   G             D
Is for us all to die
    Am            Em
Now as we stand before the gallows
G               D
Waiting for the end
     Am                       Em
I'll say these final words my friend
