Mack The Knife chords
Bobby Darin

Capo I

        C                     Dm
Oh, the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
       G7                C
And it shows them pearly white
       Am                   Dm
Just a jackknife has old MacHeath, babe
       G7                   C
And he keeps it, ah, out of sight

                  C                    Dm
Ya know when that shark bites with his teeth, babe
        G7               C
Scarlet billows start to spread
      Am                       Dm
Fancy gloves, oh, wears old MacHeath, babe
           G7                      C
So there's never, never a trace of red
[ Tab from: ]
Now on the sidewalk, huh, huh, 
whoo sunny morning, un huh
       G7               C
Lies a body just oozin' life, eek
              Am                  Dm
And someone's sneakin' 'round the corner
           G7                  C
Could that someone be Mack the Knife?

          C                              Dm
There's a tugboat, huh, huh, down by the river dontcha know
        G7                               C
Where a cement bag's just a'drooppin' on down
         Am                                 Dm
Oh, that cement is just, it's there for the weight, dear
                       G7              C
Five'll get ya ten old Macky's back in town

         C                Dm              G7
Now d'ja hear 'bout Louie Miller? He disappeared, babe
After drawin' out all his hard-earned cash
        Am                          Dm
And now MacHeath spends just like a sailor
         G7                          C
Could it be our boy's done somethin' rash?

          C                          Dm
Now Jenny Diver, ho, ho, yeah, Sukey Tawdry 
                G7                 C
Ooh, Miss Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown
        Am                Dm
Oh, the line forms on the right, babe
         G7              C
Now that Macky's back in town
