==============================================================================================================

[Verse 1]

G6          G#m6#5
I'd love to get you
      Am6         A#m6#5
On a slow boat to China
G6       B7    C6   E7
All to myself alone

Am6         A#m6#5
Get you and keep you
      G6   Gb6 F6  E9  E9/B
In my arms e---ver more
A7
Leave all your lovers
D7
Weepin' on a distant shore

[Verse 2]

G6         G#m6#5
Out on the briny
         Am6          A#m6#5
With the moon big and shiny
G6           B7        C6  E7
Melting your heart of stone
    Am6         G#m6#5
Oh, I'd love to get you
     G6   Gb6  F6 E9   E9/B
On a slow boat to China
A7       D7 D7/A G6   D#9 D9
All by myself   alone

[Intrumental]

(plays just like the previous verses)

G6  G#m6#5  Am6  A#m6#5
G6  B7      C6   E7
Am6 A#m6#5  G6  (Gb6 - F6) E9 E9/B
A7          D7

G6  G#m6#5  Am6  A#m6#5
G6  B7      C6   E7
Am6 G#m6#5  G6  (Gb6 - F6) E9 E9/B
A7  D7 D7/A G6   D#9 D9


[Verse 3]

G6          G#m6#5
I'd love to get you
      Am6         A#m6#5
On a slow boat to China
G6       B7    C6   E7
All to myself alone

Am6            A#m6#5
A twist on the rudder
      G6  Gb6 F6  E9   E9/B
And a rip in  the sails
A7
Driftin' and dreamin'
D7
Honey, throw the compass over the rail

[Verse 4 + ending]

G6         G#m6#5
Out on the ocean
         Am6       A#m6#5
Far from all the commotion
G6           B7        C6  E7
Melting your heart of stone
    Am6         G#m6#5
Oh, I'd love to get you
     G6   Gb6  F6 E9   E9/B
On a slow boat to China
A7       D7    G6 Gb6 F6 E9 E9/B
All by myself alone
A7     D7    D6
All to myself
 G6    G#m6#5 Am6 G#m6#5 G6
Alooone...
