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!
