The Hunting Song - Tom Lehrer

Tabbed by: Dave S.
Tuning: Standard (CAP0 5th Fret)
I [C]always will remember twas a [G7]year ago November
I went [C]out to hunt some [A7]deer on a [D]morning bright and [G]clear
I [C]went and shot the [C7]maximum the [F]game laws would [Fm]allow
Two game [C]wardens, seven [G7]hunters, and a [C]cow
I was [C]in no mood to trifle I took [G7]down my trusty rifle
[C]Went out to stalk my [A7]prey what a [D]haul I made that [G]day
I [C]tied them to my [C7]fender and I [F]drove them home some[Fm]how
Two game [C]wardens, seven [G7]hunters, and a [C]cow
The [Em]law was very firm it, [B7]took away my permit
The [Em]worst punishment[Em] I ever en[B7]dured
It turned [Em]out there was a reason, [B7]cows were out of season
Em Em* B7 G
And one of the hunters wasn't insured
People [C]ask me how I do it and I [G7]say theres nothing to it
You just [C]stand there looking [A7]cute and when [D]something moves you [G]shoot
And theres [C]ten stuffed [C7]heads in my [F]trophy room right [Fm]now
Two game [C]wardens, seven [G7]hunters and a [C]pure bred [Fm]guernsey [C]cow
