Bobby Darin - Mack The Knife tab

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Mack the Knife:Bobby Darin, '59. (easy version). Somebody asked
me about this song a while back - I've now just come across
the original version. I've 'easied' it up so beginners
can enjoy it too. The experts can jazz it up their ownselves.
You can throw a lot of different licks into it
and make it sound pretty good. KK.



  C                           Dm
1.Oh the shark bites with his teeth dear,

       G7                 C
And he shows them, pearly white.

       Am                 Dm
Just a jack-knife has old Mack Heath babe,

       G7             C
And he keeps it outta sight.


   NC                 C                    Dm
2. You know when that shark bites with his teeth, babe,

        G7               C
Scarlet billows start to spread,

      Am                         Dm
Fancy gloves, though, wears Mack Heath babe,

           G7                      C
So there's never, never a trace of red.


              C                      Dm
3. Now on the sidewalk, oh on Sunday morning (don't ya know)

       G7                C
Lies a body, just oozin' life,

                Am                  Dm
Yeah, someone's sneakin' 'round the corner,

           G7                  C
Could that someone be Mack the Knife?


            C                   Dm
4.There's a tugboat down by the river, (don't 'cha know?)

       G7                             C
With a cement bag, just-a droopin' on down.

         Am                     Dm
Oh, that cement is just for the weight, dear,

               G        G7               C
Five'll get ya ten ol' Mackie's back in town.


          C                 
5.Now you heard about Louie Miller,

      Dm                    G7                        
He disappeared, babe, after drawin' out, 

        C
All his hard earned cash.

             Am                    Dm
And now Mack he spends just like a sailor,

         G7                          C
Could it be our boy's done somethin' rash?


            C                 Dm
6.Now Jenny Diver, oh, Sookey Tawdry,

      G7                   C
Polly Peachum and old Lucy Brown,

       Am                Dm
Oh the line forms on the right, babe,

             G7               C
Now that old Mackie's back in town.


REPEAT 6th VERSE and ADD:

C
Now that old Mackie's Back!





A golden oldie from Kraziekhat!
