Lyrics and Chords

Intro:
B F#dim | C# F#

Verse 1:
 C#7
Take good care of what you've got
    F#
My father said to me
       C#7
As he puffed his pipe and Baby B.
    F#
He dandled on his knee
       F#        F#7          B     D7
Don't fool with fools who'll turn away
     C#7            F#
Keep all Good Company

    C#7    F#
Oo Hoo Oo Hoo
      F#       F#7      B        D7
Take care of those you call your own
     C#7            F#
And keep Good Company

Verse 2:
 C#7
Soon I grew and happy too
    F#
My very good friends and me
       C#7
We'd play all day and Sally J.
     F#
The girl from number four
     F#   F#7    B          D7
And very soon I begged her won't you
 C#7          F#
Keep me Company

    C#7    F#
Oo Hoo Oo Hoo
    C#7    F#
Oo Hoo Oo Hoo
      F#    F#7   B    D7
Come marry me for evermore
       C#7          F#
We'll be Good Company

[Instrumental] = [Intro]

Bridge 1:
     D#7                        G#m
Now marriage is an institution sure
    C#                               F#  D#7
My wife and I our needs and nothing more
          G#m7       G#m6        D       G#m
All my friends by a year by and by disappeared
           Bm7           Bm9 Bm7  A#
But we're safe enough behind our door.

Verse 3:
    C#7
I flourished in my humble trade
    F#
My reputation grew
     C#7
The work devoured my waking hours
      F#
But when my time was through
   F#     F#7    B        D7
Reward of all my efforts my own
 C#7          F#
Limited Company

Instrumental:
C#7 | F# | C#7 | F#
F# F#7 B  D7 | C#7 F#

   F#     F#7     B    D7
I hardly noticed Sally as we
 C#7         Bm7  Dm
Parted Company

Bridge 2:
G#m7             G#m6        D         G#m
All through the years in the end it appears
           Bm7            Bm9  Bm7 A#
There was never really anyone but me

Verse 4:
 C#7
Now I'm old I puff my pipe
     F#
But no-one's there to see
   C#7
I ponder on the lesson of
    F#
My life's insanity
      F#       F#7      B        D7
Take care of those you call your own, own, own
     C#7            F#
And keep Good Company
