Pay Me My Money Down Chords
This is a great song to play either by yourself, or in a group, just for fun. I love
this for all my dad's old friends using a Harmonica [Key of G] for the solos. It's perfect
just having fun and sitting on the back porch enjoying a sunset or around a campfire.
The key change to Bb [B Flat Major] is obviously entirely optional; sounds great either
Keep in mind, this is a very old song and this is just Bruce Springsteen's rendition of 
changed the words around, so you can too. Just have fun with it.

 G
Well, I thought I heard the captain say,
             D
"Pay me my money down.
Tomorrow is my sailing day,
            G
pay me my money down."

*
Chorus:
Oh, pay me. Pay me.
            D
Pay me my money down.
Pay me or go to jail.
            G
Pay me my money down.
*

G
Soon as that boat was clear of the bar,
            D
pay me my money down,
well, he knocked me down with the end of a spar
            G
Pay me my money down.

[Chorus]
[Solo/Instrumental]

G
Well if I'd been a rich mans son,
            D
Pay me my money down.
I'd sit on the river and watch it run,
            G
Pay me my money down.

[Chorus]
[Solo/Instrumental]

[Key Change to Bb]

Bb
Well, wish I was Mr. Gates,
            F
pay me my money down.
Haul my money in egg crates.
            Bb
Pay me my money down.

[Chorus in Bb]
[Solo/Instrumental in Bb]
[Key Returns to G]

G
Well, 40 nights,nights at sea,
            D
pay me my money down.
Captian worked every last dollar out of me.
            G
Pay me my money down.

[Chorus]

About the artist behind Pay Me My Money Down Chords:

Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American songwriter, singer and guitarist. He has recorded and toured with the E Street Band. Springsteen is widely known for his brand of heartland rock infused with pop hooks, poetic lyrics, and Americana sentiments centered around his native New Jersey. His eloquence in expressing ordinary, everyday problems has earned him numerous awards, including eighteen Grammy Awards and an Academy Award, along with a notoriously dedicated and devoted global fan base. His most famous albums, Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A., epitomize his penchant for finding grandeur in the struggles of daily life. He has sold over 65 million albums in the U.S.[1]

Springsteen's lyrics often concern men and women struggling to make ends meet. He has gradually become identified with progressive politics. Springsteen is also noted for his support of various relief and rebuilding efforts in New Jersey and elsewhere, and for his response to the September 11, 2001 attacks, on which his album The Rising reflects.

Springsteen's recordings have tended to alternate between commercially accessible rock albums and somber folk-oriented works. Much of his iconic status stems from the concerts and marathon shows in which he and the E Street Band present intense ballads, rousing anthems, and party rock and roll songs, amongst which Springsteen intersperses long, whimsical or deeply emotional stories.

Springsteen has long had the nickname "The Boss", a term which he was initially reported to hate but now seems to have come to terms with, as he sometimes jokingly refers to himself as such on stage. The nickname originated when a young Springsteen, playing club gigs with a band in the 1960s, took on the task of collecting the band's nightly pay and distributing it amongst his bandmates.[2]
