How To Play

INTRO
C5  G5
C5                      G5
You ain't gonna get me, honey, no way
 
VERSE 1
C5                              G5
Tearing down the highway in the pouring rain
  C5                     G5
Escaping from my wedding day
  C5                             G5
I heard the bells ringing in the local church
        C5                    G5
The ceremony's nearly under way
C5                     G5
Telegrams came and the cheap champagne
            C5                     G5
Was driving everybody out of their brains
      C5                          G5
But I convinced my best friends I lost my nerve
      C5                  G5
And I pleaded I was being framed
 
CHORUS
D5
"Sailor show me which way to go"
D5
I screamed out loud
D5
"Sailor show me which way to go," ow
 
VERSE 2
       C5
Such a deadly silence
       G5
Due to my defiance
    C5                  G5
The wedding ground to a halt
       C5
Said I changed my mind
         G5
Ain't no use in your trying
               C5                G5
So her brother punched me in the throat
    C5
Her mother got hysterical
    G5
The bitch was cynical
C5                     G5
Father's in the corner drunk
          C5
Picking myself off the floor
  G5
I ran to the door
          C5                   G5
Damned if I was skipping on my way, haha
 
CHORUS
D5
"Sailor show me which way to go"
D5
You should have heard the noise
D5
Said "Sailor show me which way to go," woo
 
INTERLUDE
C5   F5   C5    F5
C N.C.
 
VERSE 3
C5
So keep clean, girlie
       G5
Find a man that's truly
      C5                      G5
Gonna love you from dusk 'til dawn, woo
          C5
Keep your front door key
               G5
Don't give him up for me
       C5                G5
'Cause tomorrow I may be gone
              C5
You see, your would be keepers
         G5
Tossin', all night creepin'
        C5                   G5
Ain't nobody gonna change in there
             C5                      G5
Who thinks a marriage life should be like a dog's life
           C5                        G5
So let's renew it when the year runs out, that's right
 
CHORUS
D5
Sailor show me which way to go, haha, yeah
D5
Sailor show me which way to go, woo
 
INTERLUDE
E5
 
OUTRO
E5
She had a belly full of lust but she had no bust
E5
