Mack the Knife:Bobby Darin, '59. (easy version). Somebody asked
me about this song a while back - I've now just come across
the original version. I've 'easied' it up so beginners
can enjoy it too. The experts can jazz it up their ownselves.
You can throw a lot of different licks into it
and make it sound pretty good. KK.


[Verse 1]

C6                          Dm
Oh the shark bites with his teeth dear,
       G7                 C
And he shows them, pearly white.
       Am7                Dm
Just a jack-knife has old Mack Heath babe,
       G7             C
And he keeps it outta sight.


[Verse 2]

NC                 C6                   Dm
You know when that shark bites with his teeth, babe,
        G7               C
Scarlet billows start to spread,
      Am7                        Dm
Fancy gloves, though, wears Mack Heath babe,
           G7                      C
So there's never, never a trace of red.


[Verse 3]

           C6                     Dm
Now on the sidewalk, oh on Sunday morning (don't ya know)
       G7                C
Lies a body, just oozin' life,
                Am7                 Dm
Yeah, someone's sneakin' 'round the corner,
           G7                  C
Could that someone be Mack the Knife?


[Verse 4]

          C6                  Dm
There's a tugboat down by the river, (don't 'cha know?)
       G7                             C
With a cement bag, just-a droopin' on down.
         Am7                    Dm
Oh, that cement is just for the weight, dear,
               G        G7               C
Five'll get ya ten ol' Mackie's back in town.


[Verse 5]

        C6                 
Now you heard about Louie Miller,
      Dm                    G7                        
He disappeared, babe, after drawin' out, 
        C
All his hard earned cash.
             Am7                   Dm
And now Mack he spends just like a sailor,
         G7                          C
Could it be our boy's done somethin' rash?


[Verse 6]

          C6                Dm
Now Jenny Diver, oh, Sookey Tawdry,
      G7                   C
Polly Peachum and old Lucy Brown,
       Am7               Dm
Oh the line forms on the right, babe,
             G7               C
Now that old Mackie's back in town.
          C6                Dm
Now Jenny Diver, oh, Sookey Tawdry,
      G7                   C
Polly Peachum and old Lucy Brown,
       Am7               Dm
Oh the line forms on the right, babe,
             G7               C
Now that old Mackie's back in town.
C
Now that old Mackie's Back!

play C6 instead of C and you get a better sound, otherwise a 5 star version.

Added the C6 as suggested..also Am7. Should be OK now. KK.
