      G                                                

    Doctor, doctor, tell me the time of

      C (2)

    day    Another bottle's empty, another penny

      G (2)

    spent   He turned around and he slowly walked

            C (2)

    away    They shot him in the back and down he

    G

    went

                    C                  D

    Shine your light, move it on,

                        C                 G

    you burn so bright, roll on John  

     

                   G                                                         

    From the Liverpool docks to the red light Hamburg

          C (2)

    streets     Down in the quarry with the

                 G (2)

    Quarrymen.   Playing to the big crowds, playing to the cheap

       C (2)                                                  

    seats   Another day in your life on your way ‘til your journey's

    G

    end

     

    Chorus

     

      G

    Sailing through the tradewinds bound for the

      C (2)

    south    Rags on your back just like any other

      G (2)

    slave    They tied your hands and they clamped your

      C (2)

    mouth    Wasn't no way out of that deep dark

     G

    cave

     

    Chorus

     

        G

    I heard the news today, oh

      C (2)

    boy   They hauled your ship up on the

             G (2)

    shore   Now the city's gone dark there is no more

         C (2)

    joy   They tore the heart right out and cut it to the

           G

    core

     

    Chorus

     

      G

    Put on your bags and get 'em

      C (2)

    packed.    Leave right now you won't be far from

            G (2)

    wrong   The sooner you go, the quicker you'll be

           C (2)

    back   You've been cooped up on an island far too

      G

    long

     

    Chorus

     

      G

    Slow down you're moving too

      C (2)

    fast    Come together right now over

         G (2)

    me    Your bones are weary you're about to breathe your

         C (2)

    last    Lord, you know how hard that it can

      G

    be

     

    Chorus

     

      G

    Roll on John, roll through the rain and

      C (2)

    snow   Take the righthand road and go where the buffalo

         G (2)

    roam   They'll trap you in an ambush before you

         C (2)

    know   Too late now to sail back

      G

    home

     

    Chorus

     

      G

    Tyger, Tyger burning

      C (2)

    bright    I pray the lord my soul to

         G (2)

    keep     In the forest of the

         C (2)

    night   Cover him over and let him

      G

    sleep
