Seine City
by Glenn Shorrock

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

Note  Original is more F  B chords

Intro (usually a mandolin)
C            F            C (x2)

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

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

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

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

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

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

Repeat intro twice

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

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

Play intro twice and end

Chords above are incorrect. See my post of Guitar Chords for correct chord. The verse should be C, A# G, and the chorus should be C, F G. Sounds much better and closer to the original, although you could use these chords but doesn't have the same impact.

The chords provided here by Pierre_N are incorrect. They should be C, A#, G for the Verses, and C, F and G for the Chorus.
