Song of the shrimp
From the movie Girls! Girls! Girls!  released 1962
Tabbed by Del Bradley
CAPO on 2 works well for this song
------------------------------------------------------
Tip for B7 haters, transpose down -4 steps to C G7 F
and play F as Fmaj7 with Capo on 3 for
a really easy to play version for beginners.

E                         B7                      E
I saw three shrimp in the water, two were old and grey
E                   A               B7                  E
I swam a little bit closer and,   I heard the third one say

E       A            E             B7
Goodbye Mama shrimp, Papa shake my hand
E             A                  E       B7    E
Here come the shrimp boat for to take me Louisian'
E             A                  E       B7    E
Here come the shrimp boat for to take me Louisian'

E                      B7                            E
He showed his Mama and Papa, the shrimp newspaper he read
E                A                   B7              E
An invitation to all the shrimp, and this is what it said

E          A            E             B7
Free Ride, New Orleans, stay in grand hotel
E            A               E        B7      E
Meet Creole gal who help you come out of your shell
E            A               E        B7      E
Meet Creole gal who help you come out of your shell

E                      B7                   E
If I should live to be ninety, I will never forget
E                         A
The little shrimp and the song he sang
      B7              E
As he jumped into the net


E       A            E             B7
Goodbye Mama shrimp, Papa shake my hand
E             A                  E       B7    E
Here come the shrimp boat for to take me Louisian'
E             A                  E       B7    E
Here come the shrimp boat for to take me Louisian'

E             A                  E       B7    E
Here come the shrimp boat for to take me Louisian' (repeat 3 times to fade)

Arguably one of the most embarrassing song titles ever ... ;)
