Tuning: Standard
Jack Plays this lead up when changing from a C To an E 

Am                                      F        C
This is the story of a very unfortunate coloured man
        E                E7       Am
Who got arrested down in old Hong Kong
Am                                   F         C
He got twenty years' privilege taken away from him
        E          E7       Am
When he kicked old Buddha's gong

             G                         C
And now he's poppin' the piano just to raise the price
Of a ticket to the land of the free
         Am                  F                 C
Well, he says his home's in 'Frisco where they send the rice
         E7             Am
But it's really in Tennessee

Am             E
That's what he says
I need someone to love me
F        C       E7                       Am
Need somebody to carry me home to San Francisco
    F            C       E7
And bury my body there
  Am                        F            C        E
I need someone to lend me a fifty-dollar bill and then
           E7              Am
I'll leave Hong Kong far behind me
    F              C        E7
For happiness once again

Won't somebody believe
       C               E7
I've a yen to see that Bay again
Everytime I try to leave
      C                     E7
Sweet opium won't let me fly away
I need someone to love me
F        C       E7                       Am
Need somebody to carry me home to San Francisco
    F            C       E7     Am
And bury my body there
