Pay Me My Money Down
(arr. by Bruce Springsteen from the album "We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions")
5/1/06
NOTE: Obviously, you don't have to follow such a strange arrangement.  I don't know why
      he goes to Bb for one verse/break, but he does, so that's what I posted here.


  G                                          D
I thought I heard the captain say, pay me my money down
                                       G
Tomorrow is our sailin' day, pay me my money down
                          D
Pay me, pay me, pay me my money down
                                G
Pay me or go to jail, pay me my money down

G                                         D
Soon as that was clear the bar, pay me my money down
                                          G
He knocked me down with a spar, pay me my money down
                          D
Pay me, pay me, pay me my money down
                                G
Pay me or go to jail, pay me my money down


BREAK

     G                                       D
Well if I'd been a rich man's son, pay me my money down
                                                 G
I'd sit on the river and watch it run, pay me my money down
                          D
Pay me, pay me, pay me my money down
                                G
Pay me or go to jail, pay me my money down


BREAK


(KEY CHANGE TO Bb)

Bb                                     F
Well I was I wish Mr. Gates, pay me my money down
                                             Bb
They'd haul my money in in crates, pay me my money down
                          F
Pay me, pay me, pay me my money down
                                Bb
Pay me or go to jail, pay me my money down


BREAK


(KEY CHANGE BACK TO G) 

G                                            D
Well forty days and nights at sea, pay me my money down
                                                     G
Captain worked every last dollar outta me, pay me my money down
                          D
Pay me, pay me, pay me my money down
                                G
Pay me or go to jail, pay me my money down
                          D
Pay me, pay me, pay me my money down
                                G
Pay me or go to jail, pay me my money down
                          D
Pay me, pay me, pay me my money down
                                G
Pay me or go to jail, pay me my money down
