   G                            AM              EM
Oh listen for a moment lads and hear me tell my tale
    C                 G                 AM               EM
How o'er the sea from England's shore I was compelled to sail
     C           G                  AM                 EM
The jury says he guilty sir and the hanging judge says he
    AM                 EM           AM               EM
For life Jim Jones I'm sending you across the stormy sea

    G                              AM            EM
And take my tip before you ship to join the iron gang
      C             G             AM                 EM
Don't be too gay at Botany Bay or else you'll surely hang
   C                  G                AM             EM
Or else you'll surely hang he says and after that Jim Jones
     AM            EM               AM                   EM
It's high upon the gallows tree the crows will pick your bones

       G                                   AM             EM    
You'll have no chance for mischief there remember what I say
        C                 G              AM              EM
They'll flog the poaching out of you out there at Botany Bay
    C                 G              AM              EM
The waves were high upon the sea the wind blew up in gales
    AM                    EM              AM             EM
I'd rather have drowned in misery than come to New South Wales

    G                                    AM              EM
The winds blew high upon the sea and the pirates came along
       C                G                 AM                EM
But the soldiers on our convict ship were full five hundred strong
     C               G                  AM           EM
They opened fire and somehow drove that pirate ship away
    AM                 EM               AM              EM
I'd rather joined that pirate ship than come to Botany Bay

    G                                 AM               EM
For night and day the irons clang and like poor galley slaves 
   C                  G                AM               EM
We toil and toil and when we die must fill dishonored graves
   C                   G                AM              EM
But bye and bye I'll break my chains into the bush I'll go
    AM                 EM                AM          EM
And join the bold bushrangers there Jack Donahoo and Co

    G                                  AM              EM 
And some dark night when everything is silent in this town
    C                  G              AM                EM
I'll kill the tyrants one by one and shoot the floggers down
    C               G               AM             EM
I'll give the law a little shock remember what I say
       AM                EM                AM             EM
They'll yet regret they sent Jim Jones in chains to Botany Bay
