Intro: A D Em D
 
A     D      Em D     A          D  Em  D
Louie Louie, oh baby, we gotta go.

  A    D         Em         D                       
A fine girl, who waited for me. 
  A       D     Em        D                       
I catch a ship across the sea. 
  A          D    Em   D                       
I sailed the ship all alone. 
  A        D              Em      D                       
I wondered when I'm gonna make it home. 


A     D      Em D     A          D  Em  D
Louie Louie, oh baby, we gotta go. 
A     D      Em D     A          D  Em  D
Louie Louie, oh baby, we gotta go.


      A          D      Em         D                           
Three nights and days I sailed the sea. 
  A            D    Em      D                       
I think of the girl constantly. 
A      D       Em        D                       
On the ship, I dream she there. 
  A         D           Em     D                       
I smell the rose that's in her hair. 


A     D      Em D     A          D  Em  D
Louie Louie, oh baby, we gotta go.          
A     D      Em D     A          D  Em  D
Louie Louie, oh baby, we gotta go.


  A     D      Em    D                       
I see Jamaican moon above. 
A       D        Em       D                       
See the girl I'm thinking of.
  A        D     Em       D                       
I take her in my arms and then 
A        D     Em     D                       
Say I'll never leave again. 


A     D      Em D     A          D  Em  D
Louie Louie, oh baby, we gotta go. 
A     D      Em D     A          D  Em  D
Louie Louie, oh baby, we gotta go.

Oh, we gotta go now. 
Uh-huh we gotta go.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
