Am... Am7. | Am... Am7. | Am... Am7. | Am... Am7.

       Am                Am7   Am   Am7
Old Taylor said
F                                   C         G
   Old Taylor meant to cry, oh my
          Am                       Am7   Am   Am7
Field Marshall meant
F                                    C        G
   Field Marshall went away again
F                                   G/C
   Look out below; the tides
F                              G/C
   Lean heavily like wine
F                          C                       G            Am
   We are all innocent in spite of you and me

Then Martha went
Yes, Martha went away again
Down in Trasvaal
Where crocodiles and men fight on
They would have played all night
Even with loaded dice
It's gold that eats the heart and leaves the bones to dry

E.. E/D.. | C.. E/B.. | Am.... | Am....| C/G.. Am/F.. | C/E.. Dm.. | C.... | G....

Segovia watched
Gendarmerie and all, that's all
The radio man
Amanda did you choose your tune
She walked away in time
She walked a crooked line
So gracefully she turned her head and smiled, away

Am.... | Am.... | Am.... | Am.... (repeat)
