In the por Am  t of Amsterdam
There's a sailo Em  r who sings
Of the drea F  ms that he brings
From the wide o E  pen sea
 
 
In the por Am  t of Amsterdam
There's a sailo Em  r who sleeps
While the river F  bank weeps      E7 
To the old  Am  willow tree
 
 
In the port C  of Amsterdam
There's a sailo G7 r who dies     E7 
Full of bee Am  r, full of cries
In a dr E7  unken town fight
 
 
In the por F  t of Amsterdam
There's a sailo Em  r who's born
On a hot Dm7  muggy morn   E7 
By the dawn Am  's early light
 
 
In the port of Amsterdam
Where the sailors all meet
There's a sailor who eats
Only fish heads and tails
And he'll show you his teeth
That have rotted too soon
That can haul up the sails
That can swallow the moon
And he yells to the cook
With his arms open wide
"Hey, bring me more fish
Throw it down by my side"
And he wants so to belch
But he's too full to try
So he stands up and laughs
And he zips up his fly
 
 
In the port of Amsterdam
You can see sailors dance
Paunches bursting their pants
Grinding women to porch
They've forgotten the tune
That their whiskey voice croaked
Splitting the night
With the roar of their jokes
And they turn and they dance
And they laugh and they lust
Till the rancid sound of the accordion bursts
And then out of the night
With their pride in their pants
And the sluts that they tow
Underneath the street lamps
 
 
In the port of Amsterdam
There's a sailor who drinks
And he drinks and he drinks
And he drinks once again
He'll drink to the health
Of the whores of Amsterdam
Who've given their bodies
To a thousand other men
Yeah, they've bargained their virtue
Their goodness all gone
For a few dirty coins
Well he just can't go on
Throws his nose to the sky
And he aims it up above
And he pisses like I cry
On the unfaithful love
In the port Am  of Amsterdam
In the port Em  of Amsterdam
 Dm   E7   Am   E/Am
