Jakeys Gin Chords

   
Jakey's Gin         
Great Big Sea


     C                   F         C  
When I was a young man I was let astray
  C          F         G       C
I met with a body down in Logy Bay
   C             F                        C
We went out in a weather, we wore out our shoe,
    C           F          G        C
And up Kingsway road for a drink or two
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/g/great_big_sea/jakeys_gin_crd.html ]
Chorus:   C           F          C
Drink 'er up boys its well after ten
          C           F          C
Drink 'er up boys its well after ten

Some people say that the pinky is fine
Others will swear by a drop of moonshine
But as for myself I'm a bottle of each,
mixed in with a gallon of dipper or screech

CHORUS

It's the old shavin' lotion thats made me this way
Sweeter than Pepsi and stronger than tea
And when in the evening when we're feeling fine
We'll stop into Jakey's for icon and shine

CHORUS

Its the old shavin' lotion thats made me this way
Sweeter than Pepsi and stronger than tea
And when in the morning when I'm feeling rough
I curse, ol' Jakey who sold me this stuff
CHORUS x 2
 
 
(Some doubt as to the exact chord progression in lines 3 and 4 of each verse, 
but it's something tpo start from)
