Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

erosa Puff  Misc. Unsigned Bands

[Em]Well he rode from the ocean far upstream
Nuthin' to his name but a code and a dream
[G]Lookin' for the legendary inland sea
Where the water was deep n' clean n' free
[Em]But the town he found had suffered a blow
Fish were dying, cause the water was low
[G]Fat cat fish name o' Diamond Dawes
Plugged the stream with copyright laws Em

[Em]He said my water's good n' my water's free
So Pond-erosa, you gonna thank me!
[G]Then he bottled it up and he labeled it "Mine"
They opened n' poured, but they ran outta time!
[Em]So Puff made a brand and he tanned his hide
Said. "this is the mark of too much pride"
[G]Tied him to a horse, set the tail on fire
Slapped er on the ass and the water went higher! Em


Pond-[G]erosa P[D]uff
wouldn't [Em]take no guff
Water o[G]ughta be c[D]lean and [Em]free
So he [G]fought the f[D]ight
and he set t[Em]hings right
With his [G]Open[D]BS[Em]D

[Em]Well things were good fer a spell in town
But then one day, dang water turned brown
[G]Comin' to the rescue, Mayor Reed
He said, "This here filter's all ya'll need"
[Em]But it didn't take long 'fore the filter plugged
Full of mud, n' crud, n' bugs
[G]Folks said "gotta be a gooder way"
Mayor said "Hell No! She's O.K." Em
[Em]"The water's fine on the Open range"
And he passed a law that it couldn't change.
[G]"No freeze, no boil, no frolicking young"
Puff took him aside, said [Em]"this is wrong"
Then he found the Mayor was addin' the crud!
So he took him down in a cloud of blood
[G]Said "The Mayor's learnd, he's done been mean"
So they did it right and the water went clean! Em

[Em]So once agin' it was right, but then
The lake went dry, she was gone again!
[G]Fish started flippin' and floppin' about
Yellin' "Mercy Puff! It's a doggone drought!"
[Em]So he rolled up-gulch till he hit the lake
Of Apache fish, they was on the take
[G]They'd built a dam that was made of rules
Now Puff was pissed and he lost his cool! Em

[Em]I'm sick and tired of these goldarn words!
n' laws n' bureaucratic nerds!
[G]You're full o' beans n' killin' my town
and if you's all don't shut er down
[Em]I'll hang a lickin' on every one
of you sons o' bitchin' greedy scum!
[G]So he blew the dam, an' he let 'er haul
Cause water oughta be free for all!


[Em]That's right! I'll hang a [G]lickin' on ya! [Em]Never piss on another man's boot!
