Seine City
by Glenn Shorrock

Cadence - bit of a jaunty sea shanty -worth listening to the song to get the cadence

Intro (usually a mandolin)

F          A#            F (x2)

F
The weather is clearing, birds are appearing,
A#                            F
and I'm only three miles from Dover,
F
to the wind and the ocean, I'm throwing caution,
A#                            F
oh, I can't wait to get back over.

A#                             F
After two 'Beaujolais' everybody is laughing,
A#                              F
it's better than smoking and its two times as healthy,
A#                                   F
my pockets are empty but I'm feeling wealthy,
C        A#   
la, la la la la la, la la ...

F                              A#
I've got to get back to the Seine City,
F                              A#
I've got to get back where the girls are so pretty,
C                              F
I've got to get back to the Seine City,
C          A#                 F
I've got to get back to those eyes.

F          A#            F

F
The last time I was there, she wore her gold hair,
A#                      F
tied at the back in a pigtail,
F                              
I wonder if she still cares, or even if she's still there,
A#                             F
oh, I don't want to go into details.

F         A#                                     F
Well, the street that she lived in was called Rue Moutard
A#                                       F
I hope I can find it without asking directions,
A#                           F
I'm so glad I made my own French connection
C        A#       
la, la la la la la, la la ...

F                       A#
I'd like to live in the Seine City,
F                          A#
I'd like to live where the girls are so pretty,
F                      A#
I'd like to live in the Seine City,
C             A#              F
I've got to get back to those eyes.

F          A#            F (x2)

       A#                           F
After two 'Beaujolais' everybody is laughing,
     A#                              F
it's better than smoking and its two times as healthy,
A#                         F
my pockets are empty but I'm feeling wealthy,
C      A#              F    
la, la la la la la, la la ...

F                            A#
I've got to get back to the Seine City,
F                              A#
I've got to get back where the girls are so pretty,
F                           A#
I've got to get back to the Seine City,
