Anthony John Clarke - Banjo Antarctica


Capo 1



[Intro]
F   Bb   Db   F

[Verse 1]
                             C
We're headed for a real cold winter
     Bb               F
Come in and close the door
    Bb                     F
You know too well that the ship set sail
                        C
We won't be together anymore

[Verse 2]
          F                     C
I want to hear the gulls on the southern seas
          Bb               F
I want to make the rafters roar
         Bb                     F
And I'll trade this five-string banjo
      C                    F
For tobacco and a (?cuppy soar?)

[Verse 3]
                         C
My grandfather showed me nothing
   Bb                    F
My father showed me even less
           Bb                F
I tried to live my life as a good man
                     C
Tried to do my level best

[Verse 4]
             F                      C
But when the ice came round and the chips were down
         Bb                 F
I always knew my south from west
         Bb                     F
And I'll trade this five-string banjo
      C                    F
For a woman and a reindeer vest

[Interlude]
F   Bb   Db   F

[Verse 5]
                         C
In eighteen forty-six we boarded ships
Bb                 F                  Bb
Found New York and learnt new tricks
                 F
Pawn brokers and hookers
                         C
Those Italian girls were lookers

[Verse 6]
F               C
People from all creeds and races
    Bb                  F
The first time I'd ever seen black faces
Bb            F
Living out of cheap suitcases
    C              F
And drunk on smoky wine

[Chorus]
          C
Oh, we're headed for a real cold winter
     F                Bb
Come in and close the door
  F                       C
Tobacco and a five-string banjo
    Bb
And nothing more

{Instrumental]
Bb   F      Bb    F    Bb  F  Bb    Db    F

[Verse 7]
                         C
Nineteen twelve, call it heaven or hell
Bb                        F
Bought two tickets and we all set sail
    Bb                  F
The rich up top and the poor below
                                   C
And the Irish in the middle with nowhere to go

[Verse 8]
F                         C
Call it bad luck when the iceberg struck
    Bb                       F
And everybody looking for Carpathia
Bb                         F
Pick me up and take me to America
C                          F
Pick me up and take me to America

[Chorus]
          C
Oh, we're headed for a real cold winter
     F                Bb
Come in and close the door
  F                       C
Tobacco and a five-string banjo
    Bb
And nothing more
  F                       C
Tobacco and a five-string banjo
  Bb           F
Nothing more

[Verse 9]
                         C
My grandfather showed me nothing
   Bb                        F
My father taught me even less
           Bb                F
I tried to live my life as a good man
                     C
Tried to do my level best

[Verse 10]
         F                      C
When the ice came round and the chips were down
         Bb                  F
I put my wife and the family first
         Bb                     F
But I'll trade this five-string banjo
      C                    F
For a woman and a reindeer vest
     Bb                     F
I'll trade this five-string banjo
      C                    F
For a woman and a reindeer vest
     Bb                     F
I'll trade this five-string banjo
      C                    F
For a woman and a reindeer vest

[Outro]
F  Bb    F  Bb  F
