[Intro]

D


[Verse 1]

Dsus4    D      Dsus4 D
Come and listen for a moment, lads,
                    G
And hear me tell my tale.
     D                  A
How across the sea from England
  G                A
I was condemned to sail.
        D        Dsus4 D
Now the jury found me  guilty,
                          G
Then says the judge, says he,
         D                    A
"Oh, for life, Jim Jones, I'm sending you
 G                D  Dsus4
Across the stormy sea.
    G
But take a tip before you ship
   D        Dsus4 D
To join the iron gang.
      G
Don't get too gay in Botany Bay,
   D           Dsus4 D A
Or else you'll surely  hang.
   D               Dsus4 D
Or else you'll surely    hang," says he.
                     G
"And after that, Jim Jones,
          D           A
It's high up upon the gallows tree
    G                    D
The crows will pick your bones."


[Verse 2]

Dsus4    D      Dsus4 D
Well our ship was high upon the sea
                    G
when pirates came along,
     D                  A
But the soldiers on our convict ship
  G                A
Were full five hundred strong.
        D        Dsus4 D
For they opened fire and somehow drove
                          G
That pirate ship away.
         D                    A
But I'd rather have joined that pirate ship
G                D  Dsus4
Than gone to Botany Bay.
    G
With the storms ragin' round us,
   D        Dsus4 D
And the winds a-blowin' gales,
      G
I'd rather have drowned in misery
   D           Dsus4 D A
Than gone to New South Wales.
   D               Dsus4 D
There's no time for mischief there, they say
                     G
remember that says they
          D           A
oh they'll flog the poaching out of you
    G                    D
down there in Botany Bay


[Verse 3]

Dsus4    D      Dsus4 D
Now it's day and night and the irons clang,
                    G
And like poor galley slaves
     D                  A
We toil and toil, and when we die
  G                A
Must fill dishonored graves,
        D        Dsus4 D
And it's by and by I'll slip my chains,
                          G
Well, into the bush I'll go
         D                    A
And I'll join the brave bush rangers there,
G                D  Dsus4
Jack Donohue and co.
    G
And some dark night, when everything
   D        Dsus4 D
Is silent in the town
      G
I'll shoot those tyrants one and all,
   D           Dsus4 D A
I'll gun the flogger down.

   D               Dsus4 D
Oh, I'll give the land a little shock,
                     G
Remember what I say,
          D           A
And they'll yet regret they've sent Jim Jones
    G                    D
In chains to Botany Bay.
