[Intro]
 E   A

[Chorus]

A (John)   E                    (June)            A
Oh, I am a cheat and I'm a liar, oh, but you're a lovin' ball of fire
(John)E                             A
I'll leave you like a bum without a penny
(June)        E                    (John)  A
And while I'm home with the blues, I'll be hopin' like a kangaroo
           E                        A
When I get off of that fast boat to Sydney


[Verse 1]
  
(John)  A                          E
I said, listen to me, baby, I gave up the lovin' trade
                                        A
I'm tired of all this runnin', jumpin', playin'
(June)                                           E
But you're like it down under the world with the Australian girls
                                               A
And there's not a word of truth in what you're sayin'


[Chorus]

A (John)       E                   (June)        A      
Oh, but I am a cheat and I'm a liar and you're a lovin' ball of fire
(John)      E                              A
Honey, I'll leave you like a bum without a penny
(June)        E                    (John)  A
And while I'm home with the blues, I'll be hopin' like a kangaroo
           E                        A
When I get off of that fast boat to Sydney


[Solo]
 E  A x4


[Verse 2]

A (John)                           E
This is my greatest act, I've come boomerangin' back
                            A
Grinnin' like a Rudolf Valentino
(June)                                    E
But then you grab your travel load like a swingin' grimmin' dog
                                A  
And hopped on that fast boat to Sydney


[Chorus]

 A (John)    E                    (June)       A
'Cause I'm a cheat and I'm a liar but you're a lovin' ball of fire
(John)       E                             A
Honey, I'll leave you like a bum without a penny
(June)        E                   (John)   A
And while I'm home with the blues, I'll be hopin' like a kangaroo
           E                        A
When I get off of that fast boat to Sydney

[Outro]
 E  A
