Sailors Lament - Creedence Clearwater Revival

Sailor's Lament
(J. C. Fogerty)

Woke up early feelin' light (shame, it's a shame)
Somebody got me last night (shame, it's a shame)
Sat down for a friendly duel (shame, it's a shame)
With one-eyed jacks 'n' jokers too (shame, it's a shame)

Chorus:
Ooh, sailor man (shame, it's a shame)
Ooh, sailor man (shame, it's a shame)

Poormouth Henry turned on me (shame, it's a shame)
Said, "Boy, I'm gonna pick you clean" (shame, it's a shame)

Chorus

Henry said, "Don't you mess that pile" (shame, it's a shame)
Had three aces 'n' he had five (shame, it's a shame)

Chorus 2ce
