Jemima Surrender Lyrics

    D e7
    Jemima surrender, i'm gonna give it to you,
    G a7
    Ain't no pretender, gonna ride in my canoe.
    D g f
    If i were a barker in a girly show,
    D g f d g a7
    Tell ya what i'd do, i'd lock the door, tear my shirt and let my river flow.
    G em
    Oh, oh, sweet jemima wont'cha come out tonight?
    G a7 d
    The ground is so warm and the moon is so bright!

    Jemima surrender, i'm gonna give it to you,
    I'll bring over my fender
    And i'll play all night for you.
    There's a bird on my head
    And his mouth won't talk,
    You know he laughs just like a goose,
    But looks like a hawk
    Jemima, you know what i'm try'n to say,
    Meet me in front and we'll fly away.

    You can change your name
    You can find a new walk
    You can change a lock, its all the same
    You don't have to give out
    If you'll only give in
    You can jump and shout
    But can't you see girl, that i'm bound to win

    Jemima surrender, i'm gonna give it to you,
    Ain't no pretender, gonna see my tattoo;
    I hand you my rod and you hand me that line,
    That's what you do, now, we ain't doing much fishin'
    Or drinkin' any wine.

    Sweet jemima, if i were king
    I'd fix you up with a diamond ring.
