Bimini Bay
Written by Ted Lewis 1921
(As played by the Kingston Trio)

D7
Oh, 'til I go down to Bimini, 
G                          D7              G
never get a lickin' 'til I go down to Bimini.

Verse 1
G                   C
We were all sailors 'til the day 
D7                 G
our boat put in to Bimini Bay.
G                   C
We tapped a keg. We loaded on. 
D7                  G
Woke up to find the boat was gone!

Chorus:
G
Send my bail down to Bimini. 
             D7
This town is wearisome. 
                                       
Got thrown in jail just for drinkin' 
         G    D7       G 
Barbados rum, Barbados rum
D7
Oh, 'til I go down to Bimini, 
G                         D7              G
never get a lickin 'til I go down to Bimini.

Verse 2
G               C
I recollect the other night, 
D7                     G
seems like there was a friendly fight.
G              C
It was a woman brought me grief. 
D7                 G
Her mother was the police chief!

Chorus:
G
Send my bail down to Bimini. 
             D7
This town is wearisome. 
                                       
Got thrown in jail just for drinkin' 
         G    D7       G 
Barbados rum, Barbados rum
D7
Oh, 'til I go down to Bimini, 
G                         D7              G
never get a lickin 'til I go down to Bimini.

Verse 3
G                   C
I told them I would mend my ways. 
D7                 G
They let me out in thirty days.
G                 C
One little sip to quench my thirst, 
D7                     G
I should have read the label first!

Chorus:
G
Send my bail down to Bimini. 
             D7
This town is wearisome. 
                                       
Got thrown in jail just for drinkin' 
         G    D7       G 
Barbados rum, Barbados rum
D7
Oh, 'til I go down to Bimini, 
G                         D7              G
never get a lickin 'til I go down to Bimini.

Verse 4
G                    C
They say that Bimini can't afford 
D7                G
to keep providing room and board.
G                    C
I'm anchored here by ball and chain, 
D7                     G
squeezin' the rum from sugar cane.

Chorus:
G
Send my bail down to Bimini. 
             D7
This town is wearisome. 
                                       
Got thrown in jail just for drinkin' 
         G    D7       G 
Barbados rum, Barbados rum
D7
Oh, 'til I go down to Bimini, 
G                         D7              G
never get a lickin 'til I go down to Bimini.
