Shanghaied Recorded by Webb Pierce Written by Mel Tillis and Marijohn Wilkin
C F C I've played around in China town passing the time away F C When Black Jack Red hit me in the head F C And when I woke up next day F C I was many miles away
I was shanghaied on an ocean freighter
I was shanghaied eating beans and taters
I was shanghaied on an ocean freighter F C And I wanna get back to shore F C Back to the Gold Coast shore
F C They throwed me off in old Hong Kong and put me on my own F C Not a penny in my pockets F C Ten thousand miles from home F C And that's a mighty long way from home
And I was shanghaied in old Hong Kong
I was shanghaied I was all alone
I was shanghaied I wanna get back home F C Back to the Gold Coast shore F C Back to the Gold Coast shore
F C I worked for grub on an old Dutch tub and wound up in LA F C Where a pretty little girl took me on a whirl F C And when I woke up next day F C When I woke up next day
I was shanghaied for the rest of my life
I was shanghaied but that's alright
I was shanghaied I got a pretty little wife F C And I'm never leaving home no more F C I'm never leaving home no more
