Em Em6/9 Em Em6/9 [Em6/9: slide 022000 to 044000] / / / / / / / / Verse 1: Em Am7 Forty thousand headmen couldn't make me change my mind Bm7 Am7 If I had to take the choice between the deafman and the blind Bm7 Am7 I know just where my feet should go and that's enough for me Bm7 Am7 /G (Em) I turned around and knocked them down and walked across the sea [1:] Em Em6/9 Em Em6/9 / / / / / / / / Verse 2: Hadn't travelled very far when suddenly I saw Three small ships a sailin' towards a distant shore So lighting up a cigarette I followed in pursuit And found a secret cave where they obviously stashed their loot Chorus 1: E7 A7 Filling up my pockets even stuffed it up my nose E7 A7 I must have weighed a hundred tons between my head and toes E7 A7 I ventured forth before the dawn had time to change it's mind E7 A7 /G Em And soaring high above the clouds I found a golden shrine Verse 3: Laying down my treasure before the iron gate Quickly rang the bell, hoped I hadn't come too late But someone came along and told me not to waste my time And when I asked him who he was he said "just look behind" Chorus 2: So I turned around and 40,000 headmen bit the dirt Firing twenty shotguns each and man, it really hurt But luckily for me they had to stop and then reload And by the time they'd done I was heading down the road Coda: (Em) Heading down the road Forty thousand headmen on my trail Rambling and rambling Rambling and rambling...
