by JACKSON C. FRANK

Arrangements by Graeme Allwright / Marcel Dadi / John Renbourn ... and perhaps me :-)

 
For a tablature of  the original version by Jackson C.Frank you can see it and download it here
For BERT JANSCH'S VERSION see the demos and the tab here


 
You will hear that this version is a bit more complicated to play than Jackson C Frank's original. It is also a bit different than Bert Jansch's one. I chained several versions in fact from Marcel Dadi, Graeme Allwright, John Renbourn etc... . A very pleasant picking tune not that easy to play. I learnt it a long time ago. My fingers having a good memory, I tabbed the song from them (not that easy either !) and completed with variants.

 " Catch a boat to England Baby .."
 (The lyrics are at the end of the tab)

You can hear a MP3 demo ( recorded by myself (instrument only!) if you download it by hitting the bottle (with the mouse of course) :



Catch a boat to England Baby 
Maybe to Spain
Wherever I have gone
Wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone
Blues run the game

Send out for whisky Baby
Send out for gin
Me I'm a room service
Me I'm a room service
Me I'm a room service
Living a life of sin

When I'm not drinking baby
You're on my mind
When I'm not sleeping baby
When I'm not sleeping girl
When I'm not sleeping baby
You know you'll find me around

Living like a gambler babe
Loving much the same
Wherever I have gone
Whenever I've thrown those dice
Wherever I am playing
Blues run the game

Try another city Baby
Try another town
Wherever I have gone
Wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone
Blues follow me down

Tabbed by myself . All comments welcome here.
