        We c[Ab]ome on the sloop John B
My grandfather and me
        Around Nassau town we do r[Eb]oam
        Drinking all n[Ab]ight
        Got into a f[Db]ight  [/C]   [Bbm]
        Well I f[Ab]eel so broke up
        [Bbm]    I w[Eb]anna go h[Ab]ome

Chorus (chord progression same as verses):

        So hoist up the John B's sail [2: (boist up tbe Jobn Bs sail]
        See how the mainsail sets [2: (see bow tbe mainsail sets]
        Call for the Captain ashore, let me go home [2: (let me go bome]
Let me go home
I wanna go home, yeah yeah
Well I feel so broke up
I wanna go home

Verse 2:

The first mate he got drunk
And broke in the Captain's trunk
The constable had to come and take him away
Sheriff John Stone
Why don't you leave me alone, yeah yeah
Well I feel so broke up
I wanna go home

[repeat cborus w/acapella break]:

                  [N.C.] 
I wanna go home, let me go home
(Hoist up the John B's sail)
Why don't you let me go home
(Hoist up the John B's sail)
(Hoist up the John B)

(instruments re-enter)

I feel so broke up
I wanna go home (Let me go home)

Verse 3:

The poor cook he caught the fits
And threw away all my grits
And then he took and he ate up all of my corn
        Let me go [double-time] home
Why don't they let me go home
This is the worst trip
I've ever been on

[repeat cborus to fade]
