Tuned down one half step

C                 G            C                  G                F      C
Come all without, come all within, you'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn.
C                 G            C                  G                F      C      | C F | C F |
Come all without, come all within, you'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn.

C            F        C             F
 Everybody's building ships and the boats
C                  F          C                    F
 some are building monuments, others, jotting down notes
C            F          C               F
 Everybody's in despair, every girl and boy
         C                G               F                     C
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here, everybody's gonna jump for joy

C                 G            C                  G                F      C      | C F | C F |
Come all without, come all within, you'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn

  C               F                C             F
I like to go just like the rest, I like my sugar sweet
    C                  F                 C               F
But jumping queues and making haste just ain't my cup of meat
C             F                        C            F
 Everyone's beneath the trees, feeding pigeons on a limb
         C                G                  F                    C
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here, all the pigeons gonna run to him

C                 G            C                  G                F      C
Come all without, come all within, you'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn
C                 G            C                  G                F      C
Come all without, come all within, you'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn

C               F            C                F
 Let me do just what I do, I can't decide 'em all
     C             F                C               F
Just tell me where put 'em and I'll tell you who to call
C           F                     C                     F
 Nobody can get no sleep, there's someone on everyone's toes
         C                G               F                  C
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here, everybody's gonna wanna doze

C                 G            C                  G                F      C
Come all without, come all within, you'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn
C                 G            C                  G                F      C
Come all without, come all within, you'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn (repeat and fade)
