[Dm]Night close in on a shan[C]ty [Dm]town.
[F]Panama freighter wearing [C]rusty brown.
But she [Dm]sails tomorrow and she's [Am]homeward bound.
[C]Head up on a lumpy sea[G], on a lumpy sea.[Dm]

I’m not the [Dm]only lonely [C]planet rider
[F]in this one horse town, I'm [G]thinking.
[Dm]And I won't [C]over-rate or [Dm]patronize you. [Dm/e  Dm/f  Dm/g]
[Dm]I know we're as different as [C]chalk and cheese;
as [F]black hole winters and [C]salad days
and I [Dm]wouldn't like your mother much [Am]any way.
But it's not [C]her I'm taking home with [G]me,
not her I'm taking home with [Dm]me.

Don't in[Dm]tend to dress you in [C]silver [Dm]threads
like some [F]trophy in sublime se[G]clusion.
[Dm]Won't try to [C]educate or [Dm]civilize you. [Dm/e  Dm/f  Dm/g]

Instrumental, based on Am sandwiched by intro chords, but repeating the second part of the intro is a good substitute

[Dm]Night close in on a shan[C]ty [Dm]town.
[F]Panama freighter wearing [C]rusty brown.
Well she [Dm]sails tomorrow and she's [Am]homeward bound.
and you're [C]bound to come home with [G]me.
Bound to come home with me.[Dm]
And you're [C]bound to come home with [Dm]me.
On the [C]Panama freighter with [Dm]me.

Finish with second part of intro
