Mack the Knife:Bobby Darin, '59. (easy version). Somebody asked
me about this song a while back - I've now just come across
the original version. I've 'easied' it up so beginners
can enjoy it too. The experts can jazz it up their ownselves.
You can throw a lot of different licks into it
and make it sound pretty good. KK.

  C                           Dm
1.Oh the shark bites with his teeth dear,

       G7                 C
And he shows them, pearly white.

       Am                 Dm
Just a jack-knife has old Mack Heath babe,

       G7             C
And he keeps it outta sight.

   NC                 C                    Dm
2. You know when that shark bites with his teeth, babe,

        G7               C
Scarlet billows start to spread,

      Am                         Dm
Fancy gloves, though, wears Mack Heath babe,

           G7                      C
So there's never, never a trace of red.

              C                      Dm
3. Now on the sidewalk, oh on Sunday morning (don't ya know)

       G7                C
Lies a body, just oozin' life,

                Am                  Dm
Yeah, someone's sneakin' 'round the corner,

           G7                  C
Could that someone be Mack the Knife?

            C                   Dm
4.There's a tugboat down by the river, (don't 'cha know?)

       G7                             C
With a cement bag, just-a droopin' on down.

         Am                     Dm
Oh, that cement is just for the weight, dear,

               G        G7               C
Five'll get ya ten ol' Mackie's back in town.

5.Now you heard about Louie Miller,

      Dm                    G7                        
He disappeared, babe, after drawin' out, 

All his hard earned cash.

             Am                    Dm
And now Mack he spends just like a sailor,

         G7                          C
Could it be our boy's done somethin' rash?

            C                 Dm
6.Now Jenny Diver, oh, Sookey Tawdry,

      G7                   C
Polly Peachum and old Lucy Brown,

       Am                Dm
Oh the line forms on the right, babe,

             G7               C
Now that old Mackie's back in town.


Now that old Mackie's Back!

A golden oldie from Kraziekhat!

play C6 instead of C and you get a better sound, otherwise a 5 star version.
