Riff 1 x 2
Riff 2
[verse] 
D (w/riff 3) E7
Jemima Surrender, I'm gonna give it to you,
[G] Ain't no pretender, gonna [A7]ride in my canoe.
D G F (w/riff 3)
If I were a barker in a girly show,
[D] Tell ya [G]what I'd do,[F] I'd [D]lock the door, [G]tear my shirt and [A7]let my river flow.
Oh, [G]oh, Sweet Jemima wont'cha [Em]come out tonight?
The ground[G] is so warm and the moon[A7] is so bright![D]
[rpt intro] 
Jemima Surrender, I'm gonna give it to you,
I'll bring over my Fender
And I'll play all night for you.
There's a bird on my head
And his mouth won't talk,
You know he laughs just like a goose,
But looks like a hawk
Jemima, you know what I'm try'n to say,
Meet me in front and we'll fly away.
Solo
[D] [Csus2] [G/B] [A7]  
[D] [Csus2] [G/B] [A7]  
[F]You can change your [G] name
You can find a new[C] walk
You can change a[E] lock, its all the same
[F]You don't have to give[G] out
If you'll only give[C] in
You can jump and shout but can't you[A] see girl, that I'm bound to win
[riff 2 into verse] 
[rpt verse] 
Jemima Surrender, I'm gonna give it to you,
Ain't no pretender, gonna see my tattoo;
I hand you my rod and you hand me that line,
That's what you do, now, we ain't doing much fishin'
Or drinkin' any wine.
Sweet Jemima, if I were king
I'd fix you up with a diamond ring.
