#1.
  D                                  G
I played around in Chinatown, just a-passin' 
      D         G              D
time away..when Black Jack Red hit me in the head.
         G              D          G
And when I woke up next day, I was many miles 
 D    Am7 D A
away.

CHORUS:
      D
I was shanghied on an ocean freighter.
      D
I was shanghied eatin' beans and taters.
      D
I was shanghied on an ocean freighter.
      G                 D      G
And I wanna get back to shore, back to the Gold 
      D
Coast shore.

#2.
D                                     G
They throwed me off in old Hong Kong, put me on 
   D
my own.
      G           D           G
Not a penny in my pocket, ten thousand miles from 
D              G                    D   Am7 D A
home..that's a mighty long way from home.

CHORUS:
      D
I was shanghied in old Hong Kong.
      D
I was shanghied, I was all alone.
      D
I was shanghied, wanna get back home.
G                      D      G
Back to the Gold Coast shore, back to the Gold 
      D
Coast shore.

#3.
D                                          G
I worked for grub on an old Dutch tub, and wound up 
     D
in L.A.
       G                          D
When a pretty little girl took me on a whirl and 
       G            D         G              D  Am7 D A
when I woke up next day, when I woke up next day.

CHORUS:
      D
I was shanghied for the rest of my life.
      D
I was shanghied, but that's all right.
      D
I was shanghied, got a pretty little wife.
        G                     D     G
And I'm never leavin' home no more, never leavin' 
        D
home no more.

OUTRO:
G                     D    Am7 D A..Am7 D A
Never leavin' home no more.



A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
