C                   F
In forty-three they put to sea

C                G7     C
Thirteen men and Ken-ne-dy

                 F
Aboard the P. T. 109

   C                G7  C
To fight the brazen en-emy


                    F
And off the Isle of Olasana

C              G7         C
In the straits beyond the ROO

                F
A Jap destroyer in the night

C             G7      C
Cut the One-O-Nine in two

 
G7
Smoke and fire upon the sea

C
Everywhere they looked was the enemy

G7                                     C
The heathen gods of old Japan Yea they thought
     
                       G7          C
They had the best of a mighty good man 

 
                    F
And on the coast of Kolombangaro
  
C               G7      C
Looking through his telescope

                          F
Australia's Evans saw the battle 

    C            G7     C
For the crew had little hope


                         F
Two were dead  some were wounded 

C                 G7     C
All were clinging to the bow

                    F
Fighting fire and a-fighting water 

C                    G7        C
Trying to save their lives somehow

 
                         F
McMahon the Irishman was burned 

C           G7       C
So badly he couldn't swim

                       F
Leave me here go on he said 

      C            G7           C
Cause if you don't we'll all be dead


                           F
The P. T. skipper couldn't leave him 

C            G7       C
A man to die alone at sea

                  F
And with a strap 'tween his teeth
 
C                     G7          C
He towed the Irishman through the sea

 
                               F
He led his men through waters dark 

C               G7     C
Rocky reefs and hungry sharks

                   F
Braved the enemies bayonets
  
  C            G7              C
A thirty-eight hung around his neck


                             F
Four more days and four more nights
 
C             G7          C
A rescue boat pulled into sight

                  F
The P. T. 109 was gone
 
C                   G7         C
But Kennedy and his crew lived on


NC: 
Now who could guess  or who could possibly know
That this same man named Kennedy would

 
                     F
Be the leader of the nation 

   C          G7      C
Be the one to take command

                  F
The P. T. 109 was gone 

C                    G7    C
But Kennedy lived to fight again


G7
Smoke and fire upon the sea
 
C
Everywhere they looked was the enemy

G7
But J. F. K. and his crew lived on

 
NC:
Which proves it's hard to get the best of a man named John
