Pay Me My Money Down  Bruce Springsteen

this for all my dad's old friends using a Harmonica [Key of G] for the solos. It's perfect
just having fun and sitting on the back porch enjoying a sunset or around a campfire.
The key change to Bb [B Flat Major] is obviously entirely optional; sounds great either
Keep in mind, this is a very old song and this is just Bruce Springsteen's rendition of
changed the words around, so you can too. Just have fun with it.

W[G]ell, I thought I heard the captain say,
"Pay me my mo[D]ney down.
Tomorrow is my sailing day,
pay me my mo[G]ney down."

Oh, pay me. Pay me.
Pay me my mo[D]ney down.
Pay me or go to jail.
Pay me my mo[G]ney down.

[G]Soon as that boat was clear of the bar,
pay me my mo[D]ney down,
well, he knocked me down with the end of a spar
Pay me my mo[G]ney down.


[G]Well if I'd been a rich mans son,
Pay me my mo[D]ney down.
I'd sit on the river and watch it run,
Pay me my mo[G]ney down.


[Key Cbange to Bb] 
[Bb]Well, wish I was Mr. Gates,
pay me my mo[F]ney down.
Haul my money in egg crates.
Pay me my mo[Bb]ney down.

[Cborus in Bb] 
[Solo/Instrumental in Bb] 
[Key Returns to G] 

[G]Well, 40 nights,nights at sea,
pay me my mo[D]ney down.
Captian worked every last dollar out of me.
Pay me my mo[G]ney down.
