There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is a great song to play either by yourself, or in a group, just for fun. I love
this for all my dad's old friends using a Harmonica [Key of G] for the solos. It's perfect
just having fun and sitting on the back porch enjoying a sunset or around a campfire.
The key change to Bb [B Flat Major] is obviously entirely optional; sounds great either
Keep in mind, this is a very old song and this is just Bruce Springsteen's rendition of 
changed the words around, so you can too. Just have fun with it.


[Verse 1]

 G
Well, I thought I heard the captain say,
             D
"Pay me my money down.
Tomorrow is my sailing day,
            G
pay me my money down."


[Chorus]

Oh, pay me. Pay me.
            D
Pay me my money down.
Pay me or go to jail.
            G
Pay me my money down.

G
Soon as that boat was clear of the bar,
            D
pay me my money down,
well, he knocked me down with the end of a spar
            G
Pay me my money down.


[Chorus]

[Solo/Instrumental]

G
Well if I'd been a rich mans son,
            D
Pay me my money down.
I'd sit on the river and watch it run,
            G
Pay me my money down.


[Chorus]

[Solo/Instrumental]

[Key Change to Bb]

Bb
Well, wish I was Mr. Gates,
            F
pay me my money down.
Haul my money in egg crates.
            Bb
Pay me my money down.


[Chorus in Bb]

[Solo/Instrumental in Bb]

[Key Returns to G]

G
Well, 40 nights,nights at sea,
            D
pay me my money down.
Captian worked every last dollar out of me.
            G
Pay me my money down.


[Chorus]

Oh, pay me. Pay me.
            D
Pay me my money down.
Pay me or go to jail.
            G
Pay me my money down.

G
Soon as that boat was clear of the bar,
            D
pay me my money down,
well, he knocked me down with the end of a spar
            G
Pay me my money down.

in the DVD Version he got the capo on 2nd, and plays C and F chord.
Instead of Bb and F, the A and the E chord.Try it.

I would have liked to see this song on here. Maybe they will put it up again sometime.
