Intro: C G C G C G C
 CG7CG7
One evening, as the sun went down
 CG7C
And the jungle fire was burning,
 G7C
Down the track came a hobo, hiking,
 G7C
And he said, "Boys, I'm not turning.
 FCFC
I'm headed for a land that's far a-way
 FG
Be-side the crystal fountains.
 CG7CG7
So come with me, we�ll go and see
 CG7C
The Big Rock Candy Mountain.

 C
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
 FC
There's a land that's fair and bright,
 FC
Where the handouts grow on bushes
 DmG
And you sleep out ev'ry night,
 C
Where the boxcars all are empty,
 FC
And the sun shines ev'ry day
 FCFC
On the birds and the bees and the cigarette trees,
 FCFC
The lemonade springs where the bluebird sings
 G7C
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

 C
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains,
 FC
All the cops have wooden legs,
 FC
And the bulldogs all have rubber teeth
 DmG
And the hens lay soft-boiled eggs.
 C
The farmer's trees are full of fruit
 FC
And the barns are full of hay.
 FCFC
Oh I�m bound to go, where there ain't no snow,
 FCFC
Where the rain don't fall and the wind don't blow
 G7C
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

 C
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains,
 FC
You never change your socks,
 FC
And the little streams of alcohol
 DmG
Come a-trickling down the rocks.
 C
The brakemen have to tip their hats
 FC
And the railroad bulls are blind,
 FCFC
There's a lake of stew and of whiskey,  too,
 FCFC
You can paddle all a-round �em in a big ca-noe
 G7C
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

 C
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains,
 FC
The jails are made of tin,
 FC
And you can walk right out again,
 DmG
As soon as you are in.
 C
There ain't no short-handled shovels
 FC
No axes, saws or picks-
 FCFC
I'm a-going to stay, where you sleep all day
 FCFC
Where they hung the jerk that in-vented work
 G7C
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

 FCFC
I�ll see you all this comin� fall
 G7C
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.
