So there's [E] never, [E7sus4] [E7] a trace of [A] red. [E7]

Sunday [A] morning, [A6] on the [Bm] sidewalk, [Bm7]

And some one's [F#m] creeping, [F#m7] around the [Bm] corner, [Bm7]
Could that [E] someone [E7sus4] [E7] be Mack the [A] knife? [E7]

From a tug [A] boat, [A6] on the [Bm] river, [Bm7]
A ce- [E] ment bag's, [E7] dropping [A] down.
The ce- [F#m] ment's just, [F#m7] for the [Bm] weight dear, [Bm7]
Five 'll get you [E] ten, [E7sus4] [E7] old Mackys’ back in [A] town. [E7]

Louis [A] Miller, [A6] disap- [Bm] peared dear, [Bm7]

Look out Miss [E] Lotte Lenya, [E7] and old [A] Lucy Brown.
Well, the [F#m] line forms, [F#m7] on the [Bm] right girls, [Bm7]

Lack of accuracy. Simply not correct. The chords are clearly not the ones being played in the song. Also, the Lyrics are incorrect

Hi PopcornKing. The actual Song information is here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mack_the_Knife and I play and sing this in the key that fits. Thanks for your comments though.
