JUNGLE LULLABY

Listen to the song for strummyness and just run between the root notes
here and there to get that jungle blues feel... 
Lots of jazzy chord voicings in this, so I've done what I can 
from the record. Also, I think CW sometimes tunes down to Eb, 
but this is for standard tuning.

VERSE 1 

E/Adim     Am*         E/Adim     Am*      E/Adim
   It was deep in the Jungles of Africa 
Am*          E/dim            E7           E7/B
   Where the bugs is thick as fleas
           E7              E7/B     E7     E7/B
   And the heat will drive sane men crazy 
E7         E7/B            Am*      E/Adim
   And the water's full o' disease 
Am*           E/Adim        Am*       E/Adim
   I went out walkin with a beautiful girl 
Am*           E/Adim               E7     E7/B
   Where the spotted honeysteppers fly 
E7        E7/B           E7           E7/B
   We lay down under the bamboo trees 
E7             E7/B        Am*       G7
   I sang that Jungle Lullaby        Oh

VERSE 2
Well we made it down to a riverbank, 
Spied a steamboat comin along, 
Then we hitched a ride, lawd, lookin over the side, 
Everything was goin on wrong, 
There was bird-eatin spiders, big as my fist, 
Snakes that hung down like vines 
And eyes that watched as we drifted along , 
I sang that Jungle Lullaby 

Singin, swingin, 
On a lazy afternoon in paradise 
Croonin, swoonin, 
That old time song, where the days are long, 
It's a Jungle Lullaby 

     (Just repeat chorus for the rest of the song)
Bom bow domp 
Bomp ow domp ay ohh 
lay dat omp 
Folks you know, when we got back into town that night, 
there was excitement in the air. 
I heard there was a party over at the Officers Club, 
so I took that girl on over, 
man, we walked in the joint, 
orchestra playin so sweet I thought I'd die. 
I got up on that old bandstand, 
sang that Jungle Lullaby.

Singin, swingin, 
On a lazy afternoon in paradise 
Croonin, swoonin, 
That old time song, where the days are long, 
It's a Jungle Lullaby
