C                                              F      G
Nancy Johnson, she's my darling she’s my every waking thought 
C                                   D7                G
How she greets me when she meets me when my ship gets in to port 
C                            F                G
All the Gosport ladies, they do the best they can, but if you're 
C                  F                     C         G       C
Making a bed for a sailor's head there's none like my girl Nan. 

                                                         F          G

C                                D7                 G
Rum and brandy, gin and shandy   Gosport girls will drink the lot! 
C                           F                G
All the Gosport ladies they swig the flowing can but for
C                     F                   C         G       C 
Knocking it back with Honest Jack there's none like my girl Nan. 


[Chorus]

C        G             Am              C        G

C              F      G     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. 
                                  D7                      G      
When the music sets them prancing how they'll fling their skirts about! 
C                           F             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.

C                                                 F          G
Nancy Johnson keeps a bar-room where the boys can take their ease 
                                     D7                       G
She will wake me and she'll shake me she will do whatever she please. 
C                           F                G
All the Gosport ladies they do the best they can but for
