Tell me a Tale

Mp3


Tell me a tale of wine and gin,
Tell me a tale of fighting!
With warriors dread and blood of red
and arrows swift as lightning!
C - - - / C Dm C - x2

Tell me a tale of wine and gin
Tell me a tale of a lady!
With heart of sin and dress filled in
and morals rather hazy!

Tell me a tale of wine and gin
Tell me a tale of a dragon!
A sailor bright got drunk one night
and found him in his flagon!

Tell me a tale of wine and gin
Tell me a tale of a wizard!
He came home late, his magic mate
turned him into a lizard!

Tell me a tale of wine and gin
Tell me a tale of a warrior!
He was so strong he feared no one
except a clever lawyer!

Tell me a tale of wine and gin
Tell me a tale of sailing!
I tried it once and lost my lunch
over the starboard railing!

Tell me a tale of wine and gin
Tell me a tale of religion!
Its all for nuts and greedy guts
and men holed up in prison!
