      D              Bm                 D             Bm
I'm a travelin' man, made a lot of stops all over the world
       D            G                   D         A      D   A7
And in every port I own the heart of at least one lovely girl
       D               Bm            D                Bm
I've a pretty Senorita waiting for me down in old Mexico
          D              G               D           A   D  D7
If you're ever in Alaska stop and see my cute little Eskimo

       G                      F#m        Em                       D
Oh, my sweet Fraulein down in Berlin town makes my heart start to yearn
       G                  F#m          E7              A
And my China doll down in old Hong Kong waits for my return

       D                Bm           D               Bm
Pretty Polynesian baby, over the sea, I remember the night
        D                       G             D         A      D    A7
When we walked in the sand of a-Waikiki and I held you, oh, so tight

       G                      F#m        Em                       D
Oh, my sweet Fraulein down in Berlin town makes my heart start to yearn
       G                  F#m          E7              A
And my China doll down in old Hong Kong waits for my return

       D                Bm           D               Bm
Pretty Polynesian baby, over the sea, I remember the night
        D                       G             D         A      D    A7
When we walked in the sand of a-Waikiki and I held you, oh, so tight

D          Bm
 Oh, I'm a travelin' man
D           Bm
 Yes, I'm a travelin' man
D           Bm
 Yes, I'm a travelin' man
D            Bm
 Whoa, I'm a travelin' man
