Verse 1:
( Tab from: )
F[Em]orty thousand headmen couldn't m[Am7]ake me change my mind
If I [Bm7]had to take the choice between the d[Am7]eafman and the blind
I k[Bm7]now just where my feet should go and t[Am7]hat's enough for me
I t[Bm7]urned around and knocked them down and w[Am7]alked a[/G]cross the[(Em)] sea
(1:) Em Em6/9 Em Em6/9

Verse 2:
Hadn't travelled very far when suddenly I saw
Three small ships a sailin' towards a distant shore
So lighting up a cigarette I followed in pursuit
And found a secret cave where they obviously stashed their loot
Chorus 1:
F[E7]illing up my pockets even s[A7]tuffed it up my nose
I[E7] must have weighed a hundre[A7]d tons between my head and toes
I[E7] ventured forth before the [A7]dawn had time to change it's mind
And s[E7]oaring high above the clouds I f[A7]ound a g[/G]olden s[Em]hrine
Verse 3:
Laying down my treasure before the iron gate
Quickly rang the bell, hoped I hadn't come too late
But someone came along and told me not to waste my time
And when I asked him who he was he said "just look behind"
Chorus 2:
So I turned around and 40,000 headmen bit the dirt
Firing twenty shotguns each and man, it really hurt
But luckily for me they had to stop and then reload
And by the time they'd done I was heading down the road
Heading down the [(Em)]road
Forty thousand headmen on my trail
Rambling and rambling
Rambling and rambling...
With forty thousand headmen on my trail
-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
