A                                                                    G
It was a dark and stormy night and the ship was tossing on the open seas
A
C
Rolling and tossing and turning in the bunk, the first mate, the bossun
and me
A                                              G
From Bristol to the Ivory Coast, then on to Jamaica
A                                                                      D
Down in the hold there is no sound, we're bringing rock'n'roll to

(chorus breaks in 1 bar early with last word of verse)
   D

   Bless my soul what's wrong with me
     C
I forgot to forget to remember

The king of England waits in exile in the crack fields of Bolivia
The Burning White House, the Shining Path, back to reconquer Americay
Eric Burden stunned in Mississippi on the Animals US tour
Mardi Gras Indian segregation, 1964

Up the river wah wah throbbing heavy artillary
Blackface painted floodlit jungle gringo military
Any old army high on drugs fighting that rock n' roll war
