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")

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

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)

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

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
Home
