Verse 1
Intro:
("Here's a very good old good one, see if you remember this one, see if we do!)
("This is gonna be nice, this is gonna be very nice")
Verse 2
Sailed on the Sloop John be
My granddaddy and me
'Round Nassau town we did roam
We'd been drinkin' all night
Well I got into a fight
Yeah and I feel so broke up
I want to go home
Verse 3
Hoist up the John be sail's
See how the mainsail sets
Send for the Captain ashore
And let me go home
I want to go home, I want to go home, yeah
'Cause I feel so broke up, I want to go home
Yes I do
(He's so broke up, Lord, I want to go home)
Verse 4
Well Captain's a wicked man
He gets drunk any time he can
And he don't give a damn for grandpappy
No, nor me
He kicks us around
And he knocks us about
Well I feel so broke up, I
I want to go home
Verse 5
Well pull up the John be 's sails
See how the mainsail sets
Send for the Captain ashore
And let me go home
I want to go home
Well, I want to go home
'Cause I feel so broke up (he's so broke up)
I want to go home
(Yes I do)
I feel so broke up
(He so broke up)
Lord, that I want to go home
