Am                   G           Am   G        Am
When first I came to Liverpool I went upon the  spree
                                                    G           E
Me  money  at  last  I spent it fast got drunk as  drunk could be
     Am                                             G      E
And  when my money was all gone  it was then that I wanted more
      Am                   G                   Am    G        Am
But a man must be blind to make up his mind to go to sea once more

Am G  Am G Am

Am                     G           Am       G      Am
I spent the night with Angeline to drunk to roll in bed

Me watch it was new and my money was too
                     G         E
And the morning with them she fled
    Am                                                G         E
And as I roamed the streets of  Bath the whores they all would roar
      Am                 G
There goes Jarr Tarr the poor sailor
        Am    G        Am        Am  G   Am  G  Am
He must go to sea once more
Am           G                Am       G       Am
As I walking down the steet I ran into Rapper Brown
                                                G         E
I  asked him for to take me in and he looked at me with a frown
   Am                                               G       E
He said last time  you was on board     with me you job no  score
         Am                         G
But I'll take your advance and I'll give you the chance
         Am          G        Am    Am G Am G  Am
And I'll send you to sea once more
Am                           G            Am            G     Am
They shipped me aboard of  a whaling ship bound for the Artic Sea

Where the cold winds  blow thru the frost and the snow
         G         E
Jamaica  rum would freeze
    Am                                         G       E
A'las I had no luck with my gear for I left my money ashore
       Am                       G            Am            G      Am
It was then that I wished that  I was  there safe with the girl's

Am G Am G Am

Am                G                 Am     G     Am
Come all ye boat seafaring lads who listen to my song
                                                   G        E
And when you come off them long trip pray that you don't go wrong
Am                                                      G       E
Take my advice  drink no strong drink don't go sleeping with no whores
        Am                     G                Am       G      Am
But get married lads and have all night  in and go to to sea no more

       From the "Ballad Of Easy Rider"  LP  Columbia Records 1969
