by John Prine, Bobby Whitlock, and Linda Whitlock

Introduction:
A chord diagramE MajorE
Verse:
             A chord diagramE MajorE
Let's take a slow boat to China,
           A chord diagramE MajorE
leave from South Carolina
      A chord diagramE MajorE
Let's take our time and go the long way
     A chord diagramE MajorE
On a junk boat to Thailand
     A chord diagramE MajorE
with your hand in mine hand
        A chord diagramE MajorE
Well, I sure hope we got something to say
         A chord diagramA augmentedA
This old boat's got no sail
             A chord diagramA augmentedA                         A chord diagramE MajorE
so won't you please hold our mail for awhile
       A chord diagramA augmentedA
Thanks anyway, pal, but the Suez Canal
          A chord diagramB7B7
Ain't our style


Verse:
             A chord diagramE MajorE
Let's take a slow boat to China
    A chord diagramE MajorE
and maybe we'll find a
    A chord diagramE MajorE
New way to play those same old games
    A chord diagramE MajorE
The stars just might show us
        A chord diagramE MajorE
and the captain will know us
A chord diagramE MajorE
Shake our hands and call us by our first names
      A chord diagramA augmentedA
We'll send a postcard to grandpa
     A chord diagramA augmentedA                          A chord diagramE MajorE
of a vase or rickshaw, he don't care
          A chord diagramA augmentedA
We'll buy mom a kimono
   A chord diagramA augmentedA
or maybe we'll just phone her
           A chord diagramB7B7
When we're there

Instrumental:
A chord diagramE MajorE


Verse:
            A chord diagramA augmentedA
We'll drink sake at night
            A chord diagramA augmentedA                         A chord diagramE MajorE
beneath the soft harbor lights on the bay
      A chord diagramA augmentedA
We'll build house on the hill
        A chord diagramA augmentedA                          A chord diagramB7B7
next to Shangri-La Bill, and we'll stay


Outro:
                A chord diagramE MajorE
Let's take that slow boat to China
A chord diagramE MajorE
Slow boat to China
A chord diagramE MajorE
Slow boat to China
A chord diagramE MajorE
Slow boat to China
A chord diagramE MajorE
Let's go real slow
