The Mary Ellen Carter by Stan Rogers STAN ROGERS - The Mary Ellen Carter guitar tab From: [email protected] (Tourniquet) This was posted a month or so ago, it sounds right to me, except that instead of putting the major 7 in the bass on the G/F#, I just play it up top. I often get lazy, and just play xx0002 there. -jon The Mary Ellen Carter - Words & Music by Stan Rogers (1979) --------------------- DADGAD Tuning, Capo 5th Fret (see notes below) G G/F# C D G She went down last October in a pouring driving rain Am C D The skipper he'd been drinking, and the mate he felt no pain G G/F# C G Too close to Three Mile Rock and she was dealt her mortal blow Am D And the Mary Ellen Carter settled low G G/F# C D There was just us five aboard her when she finally was awash Am C D We worked like hell to save her, all heedless of the cost G G/F# C G And the groan she gave as she went down it caused us to proclaim Am D G That the Mary Ellen Carter would rise again Break: G/F# / C / D / G / G/F# / C / D Well the owners wrote her off, not a nickel would they spend "She gave twenty years of service, boys, then met her sorry end. But insurance paid the loss to us, so let her rest below." Then they laughed at us and said we had to go. But we talked of her all winter, some days around the clock She's worth a quarter million floating at the dock And with every jar that hit the bar we swore we would remain And make the Mary Ellen Carter rise again. Chorus: Am D G G/F# C Rise again, rise again D C G D That her name not be lost to the knowledge of men G G/F# C D G All those who loved her best and were with her 'til the end Am D G G/F# Will make the Mary Ellen Carter rise again Break: C / D / G / G/F# / C / D All spring now we've been with her on a barge lent by a friend Three dives a day in a hardhat suit and twice I've had the bends Thank God it's only sixty feet and the currents here are slow Or I'd never have the strength to go below But we've pathed her rents, stopped her vents, dogged hatch and porthole down Put cables to her, fore and aft, and girded her around Tomorrow noon, we hit the air and then take up the strain And make the Mary Ellen Carter rise again (Repeat Chorus) For we couldn't leave her there, you see, to crumble into scale She'd saved our lives so many times, living through the gale And the laughing, drunken rats who left her to a sorry grave The won't be laughing in another day... And you, to whom adversity has dealt its final blow With smiling bastards lying to you everywhere you go Turn to, and put out all your strength of arm and heart and brain And like the Mary Ellen Carter, rise again! 2nd Chorus: Rise again, rise again Though your heart it be broken and life about to end No matter what you've lost, be it a home, a love, a friend Like the Mary Ellen Carter, rise again (Repeat 2nd Chorus, with feeling on second 'rise again') Notes: While this sounds OK in standard tuning, it's even better in DADGAD tuning. This requires lowering the 6th string by a full tone, the 2nd string by a full tone, and the first by a full tone. In DADGAD tuning, use the following chords: G: x50200 (These stretches are easier with the capo) G/F#: x40200 C: x20000 or 520000 D: x02002 Am: 222xxx
