Darlin - Lyrics & Chords


Em  B7  Em  B7  Em 
If I'd a-known my captain was blind,  Dar lin',  Dar lin',
If I'd a-known my captain was blind, Darlin',  Darlin',
If I'd a-known my captain was blind,
C7  B7  Em 
Wouldna gone to work 'til  half past  nine,
B7  Em 
   Darlin',  Dar lin'.

I asked my captain for the time of day, darlin', darlin',
I asked my captain for the time of day,
He got so mad he threw his watch away, darlin', darlin.'

Fight my captain and I'll land in jail, darlin', darlin',
Fight my captain and I'll land in jail,
Nobody 'round to go my bail, darlin', darlin'.

Told my captain he don't know my mind, darlin', darlin',
Told my captain he don't know my mind,
I'm a-laughin' just to keep from cryin',  darlin',  darlin.'

If I'd done like mama said, darlin', darlin', (twice)
If I'd done like mama said,
I'd be  home in mama's bed, darlin', darlin'.
