Johnny Flynn - Hong Kong Cemetery

Standard tuning
NO CAPO
Barre all chords!
(chords position = totally random. you´ll figure it out.) The Bb - F part is 
probably wrong, but this version works out okey i think. you can try dm7 instead 
of F. that works too, but i guess it´s not quite like the original. enjoy :)

Intro chords: Bb, A, Dm, C, F

Bb          A          Dm          C
There are ten thousand graves in Hong Kong Protestant Cemetery
Bb          A          Dm          C
Every one of them says "born and died, and the rest might be history"
Bb                          F
Walking there I'd cry
Bb                          F
For my love was there to lie
Bb                            F
I never knew shame to be so refreshing
Bb                           F
I'd sing Georgia on my mind, she would be ???

Bb     A     Dm     C
(I'm alright!)
(I'm alright!)
Bb     A     Dm     C
(I'm alright!)
(I'm alright!)

Bb          A          Dm          C
Was the day of the boats for the fellas in coats in the Navy
Bb          A          Dm          C
They'd be all around, change the face of this town cos they're lazy
Bb                    F
1952 was the year that I lost you
Bb                    F
I was with the soldiers in the school hall
Bb                    F
Didn't know that you were ill, you didn't seem off

Bb     A     Dm     C
(I'm alright!)
(I'm alright!)
Bb     A     Dm     C
(I'm alright!)
(I'm alright!)


*..............The rest of the song is quite the same............*


Don't go, China show, new so blue so who's aboard the boats these days
Some people are fixing the terrible mixing the crew of old whose sailors say

*whistling*

Your life might be a mess of lights when you're on your own
But the lights you'll see form a line that'll be pointing all the way home
I was here before
My name was on the door
Took a score of years to get to your seat
I'll send the next in line, he'll be a clean sheet

(I'm alright!) x8       
(I'm alright!)
(I'm alright!)
(I'm alright!)
(I'm alright!)
