Mack The Knife

Bobby Darin

 C6Dm7
 Oh the shark bites with his teeth dear,
 G7C6
And he shows them, pearly white.
 Am7Dm7
Just a jack-knife has old Mack Heath babe,
 G7C
And he keeps it outta sight.

 C6Dm7
 You know when that shark bites with his teeth, babe,
 G7C6
Scarlet billows start to spread,
 Am7Dm7
Fancy gloves, though, wears Mack Heath babe,
 G7C6
So there's never, never a trace of red.

 C6Dm7
Now on the sidewalk, oh on Sunday morning (don't ya know)
 G7C6
Lies a body, just oozin' life,
 Am7Dm7
Yeah, someone's sneakin' 'round the corner,
 G7C6
Could that someone be Mack the Knife?

 C6Dm7
There's a tugboat down by the river, (don't 'cha know?)
 G7C6
With a cement bag, just-a droopin' on down.
 Am7Dm7
Oh, that cement is just for the weight, dear,
 G7C
Five'll get ya ten ol' Mackie's back in town.

 Ab7
Up 1 semitone 

 C#6
Now you heard about Louie Miller,
 Ebm7G#7
He disappeared, babe, after drawin' out,
 C6
All his hard earned cash.
 Bbm7Ebm7
And now Mack he spends just like a sailor,
 G#7C#6
Could it be our boy's done somethin' rash?

 A7
Up 1 semitone 

 D6Em7
Now Jenny Diver, oh, Sookey Tawdry,
 A7D6
Polly Peachum and old Lucy Brown,
 Bm7Em7
Oh the line forms on the right, babe,
 A7D6
Now that old Mackie's back in town.

REPEAT 6th VERSE and ADD:

 D
 Now that old Mackie's Back!
