Shanghaied
Mel Tillis
Album: The Best Of Mel Tillis: The Columbia Year


E                                 A                E
I've played around in China town passing the time away
      A                            E
When Black Jack Red hit me in the head
     A                   E
And when I woke up next day
   A              E
I was many miles away

E                        A       E
I was shanghaied on an ocean freighter
                  A                 E
I was shanghaied eating beans and taters
                         A       E
I was shanghaied on an ocean freighter
       A                 E
And I wanna get back to shore
A                       E    | E | E | F | F |
Back to the Gold Coast shore

F                                        Bb            F
They throwed me off in old Hong Kong and put me on my own
        Bb          F
Not a penny in my pockets 
      Bb                 F
Ten thousand miles from home
     Bb                            F
And that's a mighty long way from home

F                   Bb        
I was shanghaied in old Hong Kong
        F              Bb    F
I was shanghaied I was all alone
                         Bb        F 
I was shanghaied I wanna get back home
Bb                      F
Back to the Gold Coast shore
Bb                      F    | F | F | F | F# | F# |
Back to the Gold Coast shore

F#                                         B          F#
I worked for grub on an old Dutch tub and wound up in LA
          B                 F#
Where a pretty little girl took me on a whirl
     B                   F#
And when I woke up next day
B                   F#
When I woke up next day

F#                        B          F#
I was shanghaied for the rest of my life
                      B        F#
I was shanghaied but that's alright
                           B            F#
I was shanghaied I got a pretty little wife
         B                     F#
And I'm never leaving home no more
     B                     F#   | F# | F# | F# |
I'm never leaving home no more
