    "The Ballad of Gilligan's Island" by George Wyle and Sherwood Shwartz

    Just [Dm]sit right back and you'll [C] hear a tale 
    A [Dm] tale of a fateful [C] trip 
    That [Dm] started from this [C] tropic port, 
    A-[Bb]-board this [C] tiny [Dm] ship

    The [Dm] mate was a mighty [C] sailin' man, 
    The [Dm] skipper brave and [C] sure, 
    Five [Dm]passengers set [C]sail that day 
    For a [Bb]three-[C]hour [Dm]tour 
    A [Bb]three-[C]hour [Dm]tour

    The [Em] weather started [D]getting rough, 
    The [Em] tiny ship was [D] tossed 
    If [Em] not for the courage of the [D] fearless crew, 
    The [C] Minnow [D] would be [Em] lost, 
    The [C] Minnow [D] would be [Em]lost

    The [Fm]ship's aground of the [Eb]shore 
    Of this un [Fm]charted desert [Eb] isle 
    With [Fm]Gilligan... 
    The [Eb]Skipper, too... 
    The [Fm] Millionaire... 
    And his [Eb] wife... 
    The [Fm]movie [Eb]star... 
    The [Fm]professor [Eb] and [Fm] Mary-[Eb] Ann 
    [Fm]Here on [Eb]Gilligan's [Fm]Isle!
