Corrections provided by Roger McGuinn
[Dm]When first I came to [C]Liverpool I [Dm]went [C]upon the [Dm] spree
Me money at last I spent it fast got drunk as d[C]runk could b[A]e
And [Dm]when my money was all gone it was then that I [C]wanted [A]more
But a [Dm]man must be blind to [C]make up his mind to [Dm]go to [C]sea once [Dm]more
[Dm] [C] [Dm] [C] [Dm]  
[Dm]I spent the night with [C]Angeline to [Dm]drunk to [C]roll in[Dm] bed
Me watch it was new and my money was too
And the morning with [C]them she f[A]led
And [Dm]as I roamed the streets of Bath the whores they a[C]ll would r[A]oar
There [Dm]goes Jarr Tarr the [C]poor sailor
He must [Dm]go to [C]sea once [Dm]more[Dm] [C] [Dm] [C] [Dm]
[Dm]As I walking [C]down the steet I [Dm]ran into [C]Rapper B[Dm]rown
I asked him for to take me in and he looked at [C]me with a [A]frown
He [Dm]said last time you was on board with me you [C]job no [A]score
But I'll [Dm]take your advance and I'll [C]give you the chance
And I'll [Dm]send you to [C]sea once [Dm]more[Dm] [C] [Dm] [C] [Dm]
[Dm]They shipped me aboard of a [C]whaling ship [Dm]bound for the [C]Artic [Dm]Sea
Where the cold winds blow thru the frost and the snow
Jamaica [C]rum would [A]freeze
A'la[Dm]s I had no luck with my gear for I left my [C]money as[A]hore
It was [Dm]then that I wished that [C]I was there [Dm]safe with the [C]girl's [Dm]
[Dm]ashore
[Dm] [C] [Dm] [C] [Dm]  
[Dm]Come all ye boat s[C]eafaring lads who [Dm]listen [C]to my [Dm]song
And when you come off them long trip pray that you [C]don't go [A]wrong
[Dm]Take my advice drink no strong drink don't go sleeping [C]with no [A]whores
But get [Dm]married lads and have a[C]ll night in and [Dm]go to to [C]sea no [Dm]more
From the "Ballad Of Easy Rider" LP Columbia Records 1969
