   G
We come on the sloop John B

My grandfather and me
                          D
Around Nassau town we did roam
             G
Drinking all night
           C    Am
Got into a fight
        G
Well, I feel so broke up
D                 G
     I want to go home


   G
So hoist up the John b's sail

See how the mainsail sets

Call for the Captain ashore
          D               G
Let me go home, let me go home
           C           Am
I wanna go home, yeah, yeah
        G
Well, I feel so broke up
D               G
     I wanna go home


     G
The  first mate he got drunk

And broke in the Captain’s trunk
                                        D
The constable had to come and take him away
             G
Sheriff John Stone
                        C           Am
Why don’t you leave me alone, yeah, yeah
        G
Well, I feel so broke up
D               G
     I wanna go home


   G
So hoist up the John b's sail -Hoist up the John b's sail-

See how the mainsail sets -See how the mainsail sets-

Call for the Captain ashore
          D
Let me go home -Let me go home-
           -nc-
I wanna go home -Let me go home-

Won’t you let me go home

Hoist up the John b's sails -Hoist up the John b's sails-
        G
Well, I feel so broke up
D               G
     I wanna go home -Let me go home-


    G
The poor cook he caught the fits

And threw away all my grits
                                         D
And then he took and he ate up all of my corn
          G
Let me go home
                         C    Am
Why don’t they let me go home
     G  -nc-                          G
This is the worst trip I’ve ever been on


   G
So hoist up the John b's sail -Hoist up the John b's sail-

See how the mainsail sets -See how the mainsail sets-

Call for the Captain ashore
          D
Let me go home, let me go home
             G
I want to go home -let me go home-
