On The Amazon
Sung by Don McLean
Words by Clifford Grey and Greatrex Newman, music by Vivian Ellis
From 1927 British musical, "Mr. Cinders" 

[Intro]
Gm              D7     Gm            D7sus4     D+   D
There's a danger zone, not a stranger zone
Gm   Gm7        Cm7       Cm6  A7-9  A7-5  A7      D7 
Than the little plot I walk on that   I    call  my home.
Gm            D7      Gm                D7sus4    D+   D
Full of eerie sights, weird and skeerie sights
Gm            Cm7     Cm6   A7-9       D7         Gm7
Ev'ry vicious animal  that  creeps and crawls and bites. 

[Verse 1]
D7     G      Em7         Am7     D7  
On the Amazon   the prophylactics prowl,
       G      Em7       Am7     D7   
On the Amazon   the hypodermics howl,
       G      Em7              Am6    D7  
On the Amazon    you'll hear a scarab scowl
    G       E7  Am7      A7-5   D7 
And sting,      zodiacs  on the wing.
        G            Em7             Am7    D7 
All the stalactites      and vicious vertebrae
         G            Em7           Am7    D7 
Hunt the stalagmites      while laryngitis slay
        G          Em7                 Am6         Am7      D7 
All the parasites       that come from Paraguay in Spring...mmmmmm
Dm7/G    C        Cm                  G      F#    F   E   
Snarling equinox among the rocks will seize            you,
E7      A7               Am              D9  
And the Fahrenheit comes out at night to freeze you.
D7     G      Em7         Am7    D7  
Wild duodenum are lurking in the trees
        G             Em7         Am6    D7
And the jungle swarms with green apostrophes.
        G       Em   Am7  D7   G   C#dim   Am7
Oh, the Amazon  is   call-ing  me. 

[C#dim] [Am7] 

[Verse 2]
D7     G      Em7         Am7     D7  
On the Amazon     the pax vobiscum bite,
       G      Em7       Am7     D7   
On the Amazon     the epiglottis fight,
       G      Em7              Am6             D7  
On the Amazon     the hemispheres at night all slink,
    G       E7  Am7      A7-5   D7 
Where the       agnostics drink.
        G            Em7             Am7       D7 
All the hippodromes      that lie concealed in mud
         G            Em7             Am7         D7 
Join the metronomes        that live in swamp and flood;
         G          Em7                 Am6         Am7       D7 
Then the kodachromes      come out and drink their blood, Poor ginks.
Dm7/G    C        Cm                  G      F#    F   E   
While velocipedes among the weeds will scare          you,
E7      A7               Am              D9  
And the menopause with hungry jaws ensnares you.
D7     G          Em7         Am7            D7  
Frenzied adenoids      infest the hills and slopes,
        G             Em7         Am6        D7
Ev'ry one avoids           the deadly stethoscopes.
        G       Em    Am7   D7    
Oh, the Amazon  is    call-ing,
         G      Em     Am7  D7  
Yes, the Amazon is    call-ing,
        G      Em   Am7  D7   G 
Oh, the Amazon is   call-ing   me.
