CAPO: 4th Fret



[INTRO:]  Am E Am E7 Am D Am E Am 
 
[VERSE 1:]
                E7 Am 
Lord above, protect me from my family
                                   E7 
Do not let them get in touch with me
     Am D 
For I am bound to be a kitchen porter
 Am E7 Am 
Sure is a convenient thing to be


[VERSE 2:]
                  E7 Am 
I don't mind the sweating and the screaming
                            E7 
Gimme a room seven foot by three
     Am D 
For I have urgent business on the mainland
    Am E7 Am 
It sure is a convenient place to be


[VERSE 3:]
               E7 Am 
Every evening when my shift is over
                              E7 
Scribble around a eucalyptus tree
    Am D 
It may not be the stairway up to heaven
        Am E7 Am 
But it sure is a convenient thing to be


[INSTRUMENTAL:]  Am E Am E7 Am D Am E Am 


[VERSE 4:]
                 E7 Am 
Do not give me 'Fair Thee Well St. Peter's Port'
                       E7 
Do not give me Sarnia Cherie
     Am D 
For I have urgent business on the mainland
    Am E7 Am 
It sure is a convenient place to be


[VERSE 5:]
            E7 Am 
Long may I smell eucalyptus
                                  E7 
Keep those grasping hands across the sea
     Am D 
For I don't wish to face the inconvenience
           Am E7 Am 
When that urgent business catches up with me


[OUTRO:]  Am E Am E7 Am D Am E7 Am 
         Sure is a convenient place to be
