Em                    Bb               F              Em
  We set to sail on a   packet full of spice, rum and tea-leaves. 
We've emptied out all the bars and the bowery hotels
Em F#   G                           G/B G                          Em    
          Tell your daughters do not      walk the streets alone tonight 
Em F#   G                           E F# G                          B7
          Tell your daughters do not       walk the streets alone tonight
 B7 B7/A G   Em
(La da   dum dum)

Tell the tale of the jewess and the mandarin chinese boy 
He led her down from her gilded canopy of cloth. 
And through her blindfold she could make out the figures there before her 
And how the air was thick with incense, cardamom and myrrh

B7 B7/A G

C/G                       Em     Em F# G
  So goodnight, boys, goodnight
C/G                        B7
  Say goodnight, boys, goodnight
B7 B7/A G   Em
La da   dum dum

Em C G D B7
La da dum dum...

We set to sail on a clipper that's bound for South Australia 
The weather's warm there, the natives are dark and nubile. 
But if you listen, quiet, you can hear the footsteps on the cross-trees 
The ghosts of sailors passed, their spectral bodies clinging to the shrouds. 

So goodnight, boys, goodnight 
Say goodnight, boys, goodnight

B7 B7/A G   Em
La da dum dum
Em C G D B7   (x2)   Em
La da dum dum...
