The ship is waitin' an' the wind blows high

G                     D
She'll surely turn to white

If ever I prove false  to   you

Let the day  turn to night, my dear

an' sugar here for two

An' a great big bowl for to mix  it  in
    G      C/G       G       C/G
I'd pour a drink for you, my dear
     G        C/G      G        C/G
Mary Ann…     Aaa…     Aaa…     Aaa…

Yes I'd pour a drink for you, my dear. Mary Ann.
