Shanghaied

Song Author Mel Tillis og Marijohn Wilkin Performer: Webb Pierce Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]I've played around in China town [F]passing the time [C]away
When [F]Black Jack Red hit me in the [C]head
And [F]when I woke up next [C]day  
I [F]was many miles [C]away


I was shanghaied on an ocean freighter

I was shanghaied eating beans and taters

I was shanghaied on an ocean freighter
And I [F]wanna get back to [C]shore
[F]Back to the Gold Coast [C]shore

They throwed me off in old Hong Kong and [F]put me on my [C]own  
Not a [F]penny in my [C]pockets
Ten [F]thousand miles from [C]home
And [F]that's a mighty long way from [C]home


And I was shanghaied in old Hong Kong

I was shanghaied I was all alone

I was shanghaied I wanna get back home
[F]Back to the Gold Coast [C]shore
[F]Back to the Gold Coast [C]shore

I worked for grub on an old Dutch tub [F]and wound up in [C]LA  
Where a [F]pretty little girl took [C]me on a whirl
And [F]when I woke up next [C]day  
[F]When I woke up next [C]day  


I was shanghaied for the rest of my life

I was shanghaied but that's alright

I was shanghaied I got a pretty little wife
And I'm [F]never leaving home no [C]more
I'm [F]never leaving home no [C]more


I've played around in China town passing the time away
When Black Jack Red hit me in the head
And when I woke up next day
I was many miles away

I was shanghaied on an ocean freighter

I was shanghaied eating beans and taters

I was shanghaied on an ocean freighter
And I wanna get back to shore
Back to the Gold Coast shore

They throwed me off in old Hong Kong and put me on my own
Not a penny in my pockets
Ten thousand miles from home
And that's a mighty long way from home

And I was shanghaied in old Hong Kong

I was shanghaied I was all alone

I was shanghaied I wanna get back home
Back to the Gold Coast shore
Back to the Gold Coast shore

I worked for grub on an old Dutch tub and wound up in LA
Where a pretty little girl took me on a whirl
And when I woke up next day
When I woke up next day

I was shanghaied for the rest of my life

I was shanghaied but that's alright

I was shanghaied I got a pretty little wife
And I'm never leaving home no more
I'm never leaving home no more
