Rolling Down To Old Maui

Traditional

4:4 Key:D

1st Verse:
It's a damn [Dm]tough [A]life full of [Dm]toil and [Am]strife
We [Dm]whaler[Am]men u[Dm]ndergo.
And we don't [A]give a [Dm]damn when the[Am] gale is stopped
How [Bb]hard the [Am]winds [Dm]did blow.
For [F]we're homeward [C]bound from the Arctic ground
With [Dm]a good ship, [A]taut and free.
And we [Dm]don't [A]give a damn [Dm]when [A7]we drink our rum
With the[Dm] girls of [Am]Old [Dm]Maui.

Chorus:
Rolling [F]down [C]to Old Maui, me boys
Rolling [Bb]down to [A]Old Maui.
We're[Dm] home[A]ward bound [Dm]from [Am]the Arctic ground,
Rolling [Dm]down to [Am]Old [Dm]Maui.

2nd Verse:
[Dm]Once [A]more we [Dm]sail with [Am]a northerly gale
Through [Dm]the ice [Am]and wind [Dm]and rain.
Them [A]coconut [Dm]fronds, them [Am]tropical lands
We [Bb]soon [Am]shall s[Dm]ee again.
Six [F]hellish mont[C]hs have passed away
On [Dm]the cold Kam[A]chatka Sea.
But [Dm]now [A]we're bound [Dm]from the [A7]Arctic ground
Rolling [Dm]down to [Am]Old [Dm]Maui.

Chorus

3rd Verse:
[Dm]Once [A]more we [Dm]sail with a [Am]northerly gale
[Dm]Towards [Am]our island [Dm]home.
Our main[A]mast sp[Dm]rung, our [Am]whaling done,
And [Bb]we ain't [Am]got far [Dm]to roam.
Our [F]stuns'l bon[C]es is carried away,
What [Dm]care we for [A]that sound?
A [Dm]living [A]gale is [Dm]after [A7]us,
Thank [Dm]God [Am]we're home[Dm]ward bound.

Chorus
Rolling [F]down [C]to Old Maui, me boys
Rolling [Bb]down to [A]Old Maui.
We're[Dm] home[A]ward bound [Dm]from [Am]the Arctic ground,
Rolling [Dm]down to [Am]Old [Dm]Maui.

4th Verse:
[Dm]How [A]soft the breeze [Dm]through [Am]the island trees,
Now [Dm]the ice [Am]is far [Dm]astern.
Them [A]native [Dm]maids, them [Am]tropical glades
Are [Bb]a-waiting [Am]our [Dm]return.
Even [F]now their [C]big brown eyes look out
Hoping [Dm]some fine [A]day to see
Our [Dm]baggy [A]sails runnin' '[Dm]fore [A7]the gales
Rolling [Dm]down [Am]to old [Dm]Maui.
