My Donald Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords. A traditional Scottish song, sometimes known as Home Of The Whale  Recorded by Massive Attack, Mary Black, Caroline Lavelle.
[Dm]Oh my Donald he [C]works on the [Dm]sea
On the [Am]waves that blow [G]wild and [Dm]free
[Dm]He [Am]splices the [G]ropes and he sets the sails
While [Dm]southward he rolls to the [C]home of the [Dm]whale

And he ne'er thinks o' me far behind
Nor the torments that rage in my mind
He's mine for only part of the year
And I'm left all alone with only my tears
 
 
[Dm]Ye ladies that [C]smell of wild[Dm] rose
[Dm]Think ye for your [C]perfume to [Dm]where a man goes
Think ye o' the [C]wives and the [Dm]babies that [Am]yearn
For a [Dm]man ne'er returning from [C]hunting the [Dm]sperm
 
 
My Donald he works on the sea
On the waves that blow wild and free
He splices the ropes and sets the sails
While southward he rolls to the home of the whale
Key Of Am.
[Am]Oh my Donald he [G]works on the [Am]sea
On the [Em]waves that blow [D]wild and [Am]free
[Am]He [Em]splices the [D]ropes and he sets the sails
While [Am]southward he rolls to the [G]home of the [Am]whale
 

[Am]Ye ladies that [G]smell of wild[Am] rose
[Am]Think ye for your [G]perfume to [Am]where a man goes
Think ye o' the [G]wives and the [Am]babies that [Em]yearn
For a [Am]man ne'er returning from [G]hunting the [Am]sperm

The youtube version is by Bert Jansch who is a finer guitar player that I'll ever be and it's the best version I could find. Surprisingly this one was recorded by Massive Attack who are more known for pop/hip hop music than folk song.
