          Dm                     C                    F        C
There are ten thousand graves in Hong Kong Protestant Cemetery
      Dm                         C                          F      C
Every one of them says "born and died, and the rest might be history"
Bb                 C
Walking there I'd cry
       Bb                C
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 "i'd be regressing"

        Dm                       C                      F   C
Was the day of the boats for the fellas in coats in the Navy
       Dm                        C                             F   C
They'd be all around, change the face of this town cos they're lazy
Bb              C
Nineteen-fifty two
        Bb               C
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

(I'm alright!)
Dm    C
(I'm alright!)
F     C
(I'm alright!)

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

Dm  G   F  C    Dm   G   F  C

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

I think it's Dm/A/F/C instead of Dm/C/F/C in intro, beginning of verse, and chorus.
