[E] Wondrin' if my rope's still hangin to the tree.

[E] Love to kick my feet way down to shallow water, ah

C (w/ Rhy. Fig. 2) A
shoe-fly, dragonfly get back to mother. Pick up a flat rock

[A] skip it 'cross Green a[E]-River.


(I'm not going to post the solo at this time, but it comes in here.)

3rd Verse: w/ Rhy. Fig. 2 (2 1/2 times)

[E] Up to Cody's camp I spent my days -- ya'll

[E] with flat-car riders an' crosstie walkers

[E] Old Cody Junior took me over,[C] said, "You're gonna find the world

[C] is smolderin', and [A]if you get a-lost, come on home to Green [E]a-River."

Here's a neat mini-fill/solo part that you'll recognize:
