D             (w/riff 3)   E7
 Jemima Surrender,         I'm gonna give it to you,
G                          A7
 Ain't no pretender, gonna ride in my canoe.
    D                   G          F   (w/riff 3)
If I were a barker in a girly show, 
D        G           F    D              G                 A7
 Tell ya what I'd do, I'd lock the door, tear my shirt and let my river flow. 
    G                         Em
Oh, oh, Sweet Jemima wont'cha come out tonight?
          G                       A7            D
The ground is so warm and the moon is so bright!

[rpt intro]

Jemima Surrender, I'm gonna give it to you,
I'll bring over my Fender
And I'll play all night for you.
There's a bird on my head
And his mouth won't talk,
You know he laughs just like a goose,
But looks like a hawk
Jemima, you know what I'm try'n to say,
Meet me in front and we'll fly away.


D Csus2 G/B A7
D Csus2 G/B A7

F                   G
You can change your  name
You can find a new walk
You can change a lock, its all the same
F                     G
You don't have to give out
If you'll only give in
You can jump and shout but can't you see girl, that I'm bound to win

[riff 2 into verse]
[rpt verse]

Jemima Surrender, I'm gonna give it to you,
Ain't no pretender, gonna see my tattoo;
I hand you my rod and you hand me that line,
That's what you do, now, we ain't doing much fishin'
Or drinkin' any wine.

Sweet Jemima, if I were king
I'd fix you up with a diamond ring.
