Prince Hals Dirge

  		Prince Hal's Dirge chords by boognishlives 

This is a pretty easy yet fantastic song that is worth a few listens. 

No capo; standard tuning 

Originally played on a piano by Loudon, this song sounds great on acoustic guitar as well. 

Intro: Am C Am G F Am G Am 

Am                
Give me a capon,  
C 
And some roguish companion,  
Am      G    F            Am     G Am 
A wench, and a bottle of sack. 
Am                  
Take me to the ale house,  
C 
Take me to the whore house.  
Am        G         F         Am    G Am 
If I vomit, keep me off of my back.  

(repeat for the rest of the song) 

My father, he thinks,  
I Am A good-for-nothing,  
And that I won't amount to much.  
But he's not aware of my secret weapon.  
I can count on my self in the clutch. 
  
Show me a breach,  
I'll once more unto it.  
I'll be ready for action any day.  
I'll straighten up,  
and I'll fly most righteous.  
In a fracas, I'll be right in the fray.  

I can drink you under 25 tables,  
Fight and be a ladies man.  
But all this will change,  
When I am good and ready,  
To become the king of this land. 
  
Give me a capon,  
And some roguish companion,  
A wench, and a bottle of sack.  
Take me to the ale house,  
Take me to the whore house.  
If I vomit, keep me off of my back. 

End on Am
