                John Prine .........Slow Boat To China

Intro:(E)
Let's take a (E)slow boat to China. Leave from South Carolina
Let's take our time and go the long way
On a junk boat to Thailand with your hand in mine hand
I sure hope we got something to say
Well, this old (A)boat's go no sail so won't you please hold our mail-
For a(E)while
Thanks a(A)nyway pal but the Suez Can*l -
Ain't our s(B7)tyle

Let's take a s(E)low boat to China and maybe we'll find a
New way to play those same old games
The stars just might show us and the captain will know us
Shake our hands and call us by our first names
We'll s(A)end a postcard to Grandpa of a vase or rickshaw-
He don't c(E)are
We'll buy (A)Mom a kimono or maybe we'll just phone her -
When we're th(B7)ere
(Instrumental)(E)

We'll drink s(A)ake at night beneath the soft harbour lights-
On the b(E)ay
We'll b(A)uild house on the hill next to Shangri-Li Bill -
And we'll s(B7)tay

Let's take that s(E)low boat to China (Let's go)
Slow boat to China (Real Slow)
Slow boat to China (Let's go)
Slow boat to China (Real Slow)
Let's go Real Slow
