Queen Of The Briny Deep Chords

‣ Tex Masich
[Verse 1]
C                      Am
I'll never see a giant squid alive
C                         Am
Their home is deeper than I can dive
C                             Am
Sometimes a corpse'll wash up on the shore
C           Am                  G   G7
I need you -- I don't know what for.
 
[Verse 2]
C                        Am
Sometimes a squid's just kelp on a shark
C                       Am
Some mysteries are just lies in the dark
C                     Am
The Loch Ness Monster was a scam
C                 Am                    G  G7
If I'm not yours    I don't know what I am.
 
[Chorus 1]
Dm                 Am
Sharks'll bite and dolphins leap but
C                        G
Squid's the queen of the briny deep
Dm                 Am
Crabs'll crawl and lobsters creep
        G                 G7
But the squid's the queen.
 
[Verse 3]
C                    Am
It slithered off and splashed astern
C                   Am
Oh, what it was I'll never learn
C                       Am
I'll never see it now so far ashore
C                  Am              G    G7
I'll never see you ever, honey, no more
 
[Chorus 1]
Dm                 Am
Sharks'll bite and dolphins leap but
C                        G
Squid's the queen of the briny deep
Dm                 Am
Crabs'll crawl and lobsters creep
        G                 G7
But the squid's the queen.
 
[Chorus 2]
Dm           Am
Lonely lying in a heap
C                  G
But safe inside my castle keep
Dm                          Am
The walls are thick and the cliffs are steep
      G                G7
And a squid's my queen.
