Bellowhead

4:4 Key:C

[C]As I walked down [F]to New York town,
[G]A fair maid I did [C]meet
[Am]She asked me back to [F]see her place
[G]She lived on Barrack S[C]treet

Chorus
[C]And away, [F]Santy
[G]My dear [C]Annie
[C]Oh, you [F]New York girls, [G]can't you dance the [C]polka?

[C]And when we got to [F]Barrack Street,
we s[G]topped at forty-[C]four
Her [Am]mother and her s[F]ister
we[G]re waiting at the [C]door

Chorus

[C]And when I got [F]inside the house,
the [G]drinks were passed [C]around
The [Am]liquor was so a[F]wful strong,
my [G]head went round and r[C]ound
And [C]then we had a[F]nother drink
[G]before we sat to [C]eat
Th[Am]e liquor was so [F]awful strong,
I [G]quickly fell as[C]leep

Chorus

When[C] I awoke next [F]morning,
I [G]had an aching [C]head
And [Am]there was I Jack a[F]ll alone,
stark[G] naked in me [C]bed
My [C]gold watch and my m[F]oney
and m[G]y lady friend were [C]gone
And [Am]there was I Jack all [F]alone,
stark [G]naked in the ro[C]om

Chorus

Oh[C] looking round that [F]little room,
there's [G]nothing I could s[C]ee
But a [Am]woman's shift and [F]apron
that [G]were no use to [C]me
With a[C] barrel for a [F]suit of clothes,
down [G]Cherry Street [C]forlorn
Where [Am]Martin Churchill t[F]ook me in
and he [G]sent me round Cape [C]Horn
So [C]sailor lads, take [F]warning when you l[G]and on New York s[C]hore
You'll [Am]have to get up [F]early to be [G] smarter than a [C]whore(stop)
