Amsterdam  Aj Roach

In the P[Am]ort of Amsterdam, there's a [Em]sailor who sings
Of the [F]dreams that he brings from a [Em]wide-open sea
And in the [Am]Port of Amsterdam, there's a [Em]sailor who sleeps
as the r[C]iver bank [Em]weeps with the [Am]old willow tree

And in the P[C]ort of Amsterdam, there's a s[G]ailor who dies
full of [Am]beer, full of cries from a [Em]drunken town fight
And in the [F]Port of Amsterdam, there's a [Em]sailor who's born
on a [C]hot, muggy [Em]morn, 'neath the [Am]dawns early light
In the [Am]Port of Amsterdam, where the [Em]sailors all meet
there's a [F]sailor who eat[Em]s only fish heads and tails
He'll [Am]show you his teeth that have [Em]rotted too soon
That could [C]haul up the [Em]sails, that could [Am]swallow the moon.
And he'll s[C]cream to the cook, with his a[G]rms open wide
[Am]Bring me more fish, throw'em [Em]down by my side
And he [F]wants so to belch, but he's [Em]too full to try
So he [C]stands up and [Em]laughs, and then [Am]unzips his fly
In the [Am]Port of Amsterdam, you can [Em]watch sailors dance
**Honchos [F]burst in their pants, finding [Em]women to punch
They've f[Am]orgotten the tune that their w[Em]hiskey voice croaked
[C]Spending the [Em]night with the [Am]roar of their joke
And they [C]turn and they dance and they [G]laugh and they lust
To the [Am]rancid sound of their [Em]accordion burst
And then [F]out in the night with their [Em]pride in their pants
And the [C]sluts after **[Em]two under[Am]neath the street lamps
In the [Am]Port of Amsterdam, there's a [Em]sailor who drinks
And he [F]drinks and he drinks and he [Em]drinks once again
And he [Am]drinks to the health of the [Em]whores of Amsterdam
Who have [C]given thems[Em]elves to a [Am]thousand other men
And they'll [C]trade in their virtue, their [G]goodness all gone
For a **[Am]pilfery of coins, till they [Em]just can't go on
Throws his [F]nose to the sky, and he [Em]aims up above
And then [C]pisses a [Em]cry for an [Am]unfaithful love
[C]     [G]     [Em]     [Am]
