Gosport Nan     (capo 2 for original but easier to sing without capo i.e. in key of C)

C                                          
Nancy Johnson, she's my darling she’s my every waking thought 
                                    D                 G
How she greets me when she meets me when my ship gets in to port 
C                            D                G
All the Gosport ladies, they do the best they can. 
              C                  F                       C         G       C
But if you're making a bed for a sailor's head   there's none like my girl Nan. 

Gosport girls can drink for England    Gosport girls, they goes their tot! 
                                 D                  G
Rum and brandy, gin and shandy   Gosport girls will drink the lot! 
C                           D                G
All the Gosport ladies they swig the flowing can 
        C                     F                     C         G       C
But for knocking it back with Honest Jack   there's none like my girl Nan. 

CHORUS:
         G             Am              C              
Oh Nancy can't you see you're the only girl for me! 
               F            C                G      C
How I dream of lovely Nancy when I'm sailing on the sea. 


Gosport girls, they're good at dancing they’re the best, there is no doubt. 
                                  D                       G      
When the music sets them prancing how they'll fling their skirts about! 
C                           D             G
All the Gosport ladies they do the French Can-Can 
C                           F                    C         G       C
But for real high kicks and fancy tricks there’s none like my girl Nan. 

CHORUS

Nancy Johnson keeps a bar-room where the boys can take their ease 
                                     D                        G
She will wake me and she'll shake me she will do whatever she please. 
C                           D                G
All the Gosport ladies they do the best they can 
        C                  F                     C         G       C
But for making a bed for a sailor's head there's none like my girl Nan
