D                    Dsus4  D 
We come on the sloop john   b
D              Dsus4  D 
My grandfather and    me
              Dsus4         A
Around Nassau town we did roam
              D     Dsus4  D
Drinking all night
             G   EM  A
Got into a fight
        D            Dadd11         
Well I feel so broke up
A               D     Dsus4  D
  I want to go home

D                    Dsus4  D 
So hoist up the john b’s    sail
D               Dsus4  D 
See how the mainsail   sets
D                    Dsus4                                  
Call for the captain ashore
            A              D   Dsus4  D
Let me go home, let me go home
            G   EM  A 
I wanna go home

        D            Dadd11                      
Well I feel so broke up

A           D     Dsus4  D
  I wanna go home

The first mate he got drunk        
And broke in the cap’n’s trunk                                        
The constable had to come and take him away                     
Sheriff john stone                         
Why don’t you leave me alone
Well I feel so broke up I wanna go home
(hoist up the john b’s sail)
Hoist up the john b                     
I feel so broke up I wanna go home
Let me go home

The D and Dadd11 chords should not have a low E, open 6th string in the bass, in my opinion.
