Fish and Whistle Ukulele Chords

[D]I been thinking lately about the [G]people I [D]meet
The [G]carwash on the [D]corner and the [A]hole in the street
The [D]way my ankles hurt with [G]shoes on my feet
And I’m [D]wondering if I’m [A]gonna see [D]tomorrow.

[D]Father forgive us for [G]what we must [D]do
[G]You forgive [D]us [A]we’ll forgive you
[D]We’ll forgive each other till we [G]both turn blue
Then we’ll [D]whistle and go [A]fishing in [D]heaven.

[D]I was in the army but I [G]never dug a [D]trench
I [G]used to bust my [D]knuckles on a [A]monkey wrench
Then I’d [D]go to town and drink and [G]give the girls a pinch
But I [D]don’t think they ever [A]even [D]noticed me.

[D]Father forgive us for [G]what we must [D]do
[G]You forgive [D]us [A]we’ll forgive you
[D]We’ll forgive each other till we [G]both turn blue
Then we’ll [D]whistle and go [A]fishing in [D]heaven.

[A]Fish and whistle, whistle and fish
[D]Eat everything that they put on your dish
[G]And when we get through we’ll [D]make a big wish
That we [Em]never have to do this [A]again, again, again.

On my [D]very first job I said [G]thank you and [D]please
They [G]made me scrub a [D]parking lot [A]down on my knees
[D]Then I got fired for [G]being scared of bees
And they only [D]give me [A]fifty cents an [D]hour.

[D]Father forgive us for [G]what we must [D]do
[G]You forgive [D]us [A]we’ll forgive you
[D]We’ll forgive each other till we [G]both turn blue
Then we’ll [D]whistle and go [A]fishing in [D]heaven.

[A]Fish and whistle whistle and fish
[D]Eat everything that they put on your dish
[G]And when we get through we’ll [D]make a big wish
That we [Em]never have to do this [A]again, again, again.

[D]Father forgive us for [G]what we must [D]do
[G]You forgive [D]us [A]we’ll forgive you
[D]We’ll forgive each other till we [G]both turn blue
Then we’ll [D]whistle and go [A]fishing in [D]heaven.

We’ll whistle and go [A]fishing in [D]heaven
We’ll whistle and go [A]fishing in [D]heaven
