Rub a Dub Dub
Written and recorded by Hank Thompson 
G                                                        C
Once upon a time in a nursery rhyme three little men got lost
D7 G
Like you and me they couldn’t agree and upon the waves they tossed
I’ll sing their tune cause they got marooned with a love I can’t forget
D7 G
Now the three little men just took min in on an ocean of regret

With a rub-a-dub-dub three men in the tub lost on the ocean blue
G C D7 G
I row like a hub sang rub-a-dub-dub cause you broke my heart in two

Well I can’t reach shore and my heart is sore and I’m driftin' far away
D7 G
From the love I had and I’m feelin' mighty bad and I can’t go on this way
Won’t you throw out the line and say you’re mine and take me back again
D7 G
Cause my rudder’s broke and it ain’t no joke won’t you reach and pull me in

Well I knew right away there’d never come a day when I’d reach land again
D7 G
The one I adore on the distance shore is now at the rainbow’s end
To the three little guys I turned my eyes won’t you tell your names to me
D7 G
Well one said fate one said hate and the other said jealousy
