Shanghied by Burl Ives Ukulele Chords

INTRO: C A

#1.
I played around in Chinatown, just a-passin’
time away..when Black Jack Red hit me in the head.
And when I woke up next day, I was many miles
away.

CHORUS:
I was shanghied on an ocean freighter.
I was shanghied eatin’ beans and taters.
I was shanghied on an ocean freighter.
And I wanna get back to shore, back to the Gold
Coast shore.

#2.
They throwed me off in old Hong Kong, put me on
my own.
Not a penny in my pocket, ten thousand miles from
home..that’s a mighty long way from home.

CHORUS:
I was shanghied in old Hong Kong.
I was shanghied, I was all alone.
I was shanghied, wanna get back home.
Back to the Gold Coast shore, back to the Gold
Coast shore.

#3.
I worked for grub on an old Dutch tub, and wound up
in L.A.
When a pretty little girl took me on a whirl and
when I woke up next day, when I woke up next day.

CHORUS:
I was shanghied for the rest of my life.
I was shanghied, but that’s all right.
I was shanghied, got a pretty little wife.
And I’m never leavin’ home no more, never leavin’
home no more.

OUTRO:
G D Am7 D A..Am7 D A
Never leavin’ home no more.
