Part 1 
         C#m   C#m7                  C#m6   A/C# 
It's the story of a very unfortunate colored man 
         C#m            G#7       C#m 
Who got arrested down in old Hong Kong. 
        C#m    C#m7                  C#m6     A/C# 
He got twenty years privilege taken away from him

Part 2 
             B                         E 
And now he's popping the piano just to raise the price 
     C#m                       Amaj7  G#7 
Of a ticket to the land of the free 
         E 
Well, he says his home's in Frisco where they send the rice 
         B7               E   G#7             C#m 
But it's really in Tennessee,   that's why he said: 

G# C#m I need someone to love me G#7 C#m C#m/B Amaj7 G#7 C#m E6 I need somebody to carry me home to San Francisco A B E G#7 And bury my body there
