[C] My old man said, [D7] "Follow the van,
An' [G7] don't dilly dally on the [C] way!"
[E7] Off went the cart with my [Am] home packed in it,
[D7] I walked behind with me [G] old cock linnet.
But I [C] dillied and [G7] dallied [C] dallied and [G7] dillied
[C] Lost the van and [D7] don't know where to [G] roam [G7]
Oh, you [C] can't trust the [C7] specials [F] like the old-time [Dm] coppers
When you [C] can't find [G7] your way [C] home.
[C] Show me the way to go [C7] home
I'm [F] tired and I want to go to [C] bed
I had a little drink about an hour ago
And it's [D7] gone right to my [G7] head
No [C] matter where I [C7] roam
Over [F] land or sea or [E7] foam
You can [C] always hear me [Am] singing this song
[G7] Show me the way to go [C] home.
