She Wanted To Leave

By Ween

From the album The Mollusk


[verse one]
A       G               D
  Three men's all there were
  Three men out at      sea
  Three men came    a - board my ship, and
D                      G 
took my true love from me
  I couldn't      be - lieve
  She wanted to        leave
Em              A
  She wanted to leave

[verse two]
A       G              D
  I've  loved you so   long
  Since you were a     child
  I've  cared for your every need, I've
D                 G
tried to make you smile
  When all the    while
  You wanted to   leave
Em              A
  You wanted to leave

[verse two]
A       G             D
  Go    gather the    guns
  We'll blast them at sea
  She   begged for me not to shoot, for my
D                      G
true love is here with me,
  And I've never loved thee,
  And now I must       leave,
Em               A
  And now I must leave."

   G          A         Bm   A    G
So go fetch a bottle of rum, dear friends
    G          A            Bm
And fill up my glass to the rim
    G           A      Bm   A  G
For I'm not the man, I used to be
G       A      D
Now I'm one of them
