D, G, Em

I once met this old wise man
He invited me into his caravan
We sat down for a cup of tea
He sat down very gingerly
He said he's still got a sore back
G                                 D
From the time, on the roof with Jack

We were on the roof one day,
when suddenly I heard Jack say
Em                    G
"Look out for that crack!
Em             G            D
Phewhack! I was lying on my back

When I was just your age,
I was already working
For a shilling a day
It was just enough for mom to say
Em           G              D
Ohhhh Johnny you make me so proud!

Pa would come home from work, and say 
G               D                    G
"John, one day, you'll work with me down at the factory."
Em                G              D
But I don't wanna work in no factory
Em                        G              D
So I packed my bags and I headed for the tree.

D                             G
I was only away from home for about an hour
D                          G
But i was home in time for tea
D                         G                D              G
I said very politely that I didn't want to work in no factory.

                      Em           G
Pa said John you're a second-class citizen,
           D                  G
and you're never gonna get very far
       Em                           G
I said Pa, I'm gonna see the world, I'm gonna see it all
          Em               G        D
I'm gonna be all that I can be, and more.

      D                        G                        D                  G
Daddy finished his cup of tea, reached into his pocket, and pulled out a key
He said you can have my old caravan,
    G                   Em         G
I won't be needing it any more
         Em                  G        D
Because I've see all I wanna see, and more.
