Amsterdam

Capo on 3rd fret
	  		
 

 
        Em        
In the port of Amsterdam 
        Bm 
There's a sailor who sings 
        C 
Of the dreams that he brings 
        B 
From a wide open sea 
        Em 
And in the port of Amsterdam 
        Bm 
There's a sailor who sleeps 
        C            B7 
While the river bank weeps 
        Em 
To the old willow tree 
        G 
And in the port of Amsterdam 
        D7           B7 
There's a sailor who dies 
        Em 
Full of beers full of cries 
        B7 
In a drunken down fight 
        C 
And in the port of Amsterdam 
        Bm 
There's a sailor who is born 
        Am7            B7 
On the hot muggy morn 
          Em 
By the dawns early light 

        Em 
In the port of Amsterdam 
        Bm 
Where the sailors all meet 
        C 
There's a sailor who eats 
        B 
Only fish heads and tails 
        Em 
He'll show you his teeth 
        Bm 
That have rotted too soon 
        C               B7 
That can drink down the moon 
        Em 
That can haul up the sails 
        G 
And he turns to the cook 
        D7         B7 
With his arms open wide 
        Em 
Oh bring me more fish 
        B7 
Set it down by my side 
        C 
And he wants so to belch 
        Bm 
But he's too full to try 
        Am7          B7 
So he gets up and he laughs 
        Em 
And he zips up his flies 

        Em 
In the port of Amsterdam 
        Bm 
You can see sailors dance 
        C 
Paunches bursting their pants 
        B 
Grinding women to paunch 
        Em 
They've forgotten the tune 
        Bm 
That their whiskey voice croaks 
        C       B7 
Splitting the night 
        Em 
With the roar of their jokes 
        G 
And they turn and they dance 
        D7              B7 
And they laugh and they lust 
        Em 
Till the rancid sound 
        B7 
Of the accordion bursts 
        C 
Then it?s in to the night 
        Bm 
With their pride in their pants 
        Am7           B7 
And the slut that they tow 
        Em 
Underneath the street lamps 

        Em 
In the port of Amsterdam 
        Bm 
There's a sailor who drinks 
        C 
And he drinks and he drinks 
        B 
And he drinks once again 
        Em 
Oh he drinks to the health 
        Bm 
Of the whores of Amsterdam 
        C               B7 
Who have promised their bodies 
        Em 
To a thousand other men 
        G 
They have bargained their bodies 
        D7        B7 
Their virtues all gone 
        Em 
For the few dirty coins 
        B7 
When he just can't go on 
        C 
He puts his nose in the air 
        Bm 
And he wipes it up above 
        Am7         B7 
And he pisses like I cry 
        Em 
For an unfaithful love 

        Em 
In the port of Amsterdam 
        Bm              Am B7 Em 
In the port of Amsterdam 
Em  Bm  Am B7  Em 
In the port of Amsterdam 

end on Em
