Big rock candy mountain  Traditional

Intro: C G C G C G C
One [C]evening, [G7]as the [C]sun went [G7]down
And the [C]jungle [G7]fire was [C]burning,
Down the track came a [G7]hobo, [C]hiking,
And he said, "Boys, [G7]I'm not [C]turning.
I'm [F]headed for a [C]land that's [F]far a-[C]way
Be-[F]side the crystal [G]fountains.
So [C]come with [G7]me, we�ll [C]go and [G7]see
The [C]Big Rock [G7]Candy [C]Mountain.

In the [C]Big Rock Candy Mountains
There's a [F]land that's fair and [C]bright,
Where the [F]handouts grow on [C]bushes
And you [Dm]sleep out ev'ry [G]night,
Where the [C]boxcars all are empty,
And the [F]sun shines ev'ry [C]day
On the [F]birds and the [C]bees and the [F]cigarette [C]trees,
The [F]lemonade [C]springs where the [F]bluebird [C]sings
In the [G7]Big Rock Candy [C]Mountains.

In the [C]Big Rock Candy Mountains,
All the [F]cops have wooden [C]legs,
And the [F]bulldogs all have [C]rubber teeth
And the [Dm]hens lay soft-boiled [G]eggs.
The [C]farmer's trees are full of fruit
And the [F]barns are full of [C]hay.
Oh I�m [F]bound to [C]go, where there [F]ain't no [C]snow,
Where the [F]rain don't [C]fall and the [F]wind don't [C]blow
In the [G7]Big Rock Candy [C]Mountains.
In the [C]Big Rock Candy Mountains,
You [F]never change your [C]socks,
And the [F]little streams of [C]alcohol
Come a-[Dm]trickling down the [G]rocks.
The [C]brakemen have to tip their hats
And the [F]railroad bulls are [C]blind,
There's a [F]lake of [C]stew and of [F]whiskey, [C] too,
You can [F]paddle all a-[C]round �em in a [F]big ca-[C]noe
In the [G7]Big Rock Candy [C]Mountains.
In the [C]Big Rock Candy Mountains,
The [F]jails are made of [C]tin,
And [F]you can walk right [C]out again,
As [Dm]soon as you are [G]in.
There [C]ain't no short-handled shovels
No [F]axes, saws or [C]picks-
I'm a-[F]going to [C]stay, where you [F]sleep all [C]day
Where they [F]hung the [C]jerk that in-[F]vented [C]work
In the [G7]Big Rock Candy [C]Mountains.
I�ll [F]see you [C]all this [F]comin� [C]fall
In the [G7]Big Rock Candy [C]Mountains.
