G (strum the chord once slowly)

            G                 D                  C         G
He said his pride and joy was that ol' John Bull Tin....

    G                           D
1.  He said it saved him from a bullet once
    C            G
But I did not believe
G                                              D
He's just an old man in the park half drunk on rum
      G              D         C                    G
As he rolled another smoke and closed the John Bull Tin
G                                 D  G
He said, "I've carried that since 1941."


Chorus:

G          C
Rubbed and worn a shiny silver
     G
Blue letters chipped away
G                                D
His memories and tabacco fit within
       G             G7            C                G
He had one religious medal that he carried near his heart
G                         D                  G
But his pride and joy was that old John Bull Tin


    G                         D
2.  He said. "It used to be a tire patch kit
    C             G
But that was long ago
G                                D
It's memories and tabacco now my friend
        G                       D
Ya know some folks need a magic lamp
   C                G
To conjure up their dreams
G                 D                    G
But mine are kept inside the John Bull Tin."


Repeat Chorus

Solo:  strum through one verse

    G                D
3.  I found it lyin' in the grass
     C                    G
In a park near Shepherd's Bush
G                        D
I never saw that old man again
  G                 D
I guess he rolled a final smoke
    C             G
And went to his reward
G                      D                     G
Why else would he have dropped the John Bull Tin?


Repeat Chorus

G                     D                  C    D  G
His pride and joy was that old John Bull Tin
