John's Song

I once met this old wise man 
He invited me into his caravan 
We sat down for a cup of tea 
He sat down very gingerly 
He said he's still got a sore back 
G                                 D 
From the time, on the roof with Jack 

We were on the roof one day, 
when suddenly I heard Jack say 
Em                    G 
"Look out for that crack!? 
Em             G            D 
Phewhack! I was lying on my back 

When I was just your age, 
I was already working 
For a shilling a day 
It was just enough for mom to say 
Em           G              D 
Ohhhh Johnny you make me so proud! 

Pa would come home from work, and say  
G               D                    G 
"John, one day, you'll work with me down at the factory." 
Em                G              D 
But I don't wanna work in no factory 
Em                        G              D 
So I packed my bags and I headed for the tree. 

D                             G 
I was only away from home for about an hour 
D                          G 
But i was home in time for tea 
D                         G                D              G 
I said very politely that I didn't want to work in no factory. 

                      Em           G 
Pa said John you're a second-class citizen, 
           D                  G 
and you're never gonna get very far 
       Em                           G 
I said Pa, I'm gonna see the world, I'm gonna see it all 
          Em               G        D 
I'm gonna be all that I can be, and more. 

      D                        G                        D                  G 
Daddy finished his cup of tea, reached into his pocket, and pulled out a key 
He said you can have my old caravan, 
    G                   Em         G 
I won't be needing it any more 
         Em                  G        D 
Because I've see all I wanna see, and more.
