Harry McClintock---In the Big Rock Candy Mountains Words and music by Harry "Haywire Mac" McClintock Tabbed by bernard Batrouni from Lebanon E-mail:email@example.com This song is from the "o brother where art thou soundtrack" soundtrack Capo 1 Intro: C C C One evening as the sun went down And the jungle fires were burning, Down the track came a hobo hiking, And he said, "Boys, I'm not turning F I'm headed for a land that's far away G Besides the crystal fountains C So come with me, we'll go and see G C The Big Rock Candy Mountains C In the Big Rock Candy Mountains, F C There's a land that's fair and bright, F C Where the handouts grow on bushes G And you sleep out every night. C Where the boxcars all are empty F C And the sun shines every day F C And the birds and the bees F C And the cigarette trees F C The lemonade springs F C Where the bluebird sings G C In the Big Rock Candy Mountains. (The next parts go the same as the precedent) In the Big Rock Candy Mountains All the cops have wooden legs And the bulldogs all have rubber teeth And the hens lay soft-boiled eggs The farmers' trees are full of fruit And the barns are full of hay Oh I'm bound to go Where there ain't no snow Where the rain don't fall The winds don't blow In the Big Rock Candy Mountains. In the Big Rock Candy Mountains You never change your socks And the little streams of alcohol Come trickling down the rocks The brakemen have to tip their hats And the railway bulls are blind There's a lake of stew And of whiskey too You can paddle all around it In a big canoe In the Big Rock Candy Mountains In the Big Rock Candy Mountains, The jails are made of tin. And you can walk right out again, As soon as you are in. There ain't no short-handled shovels, No axes, saws nor picks, I'm bound to stay Where you sleep all day, Where they hung the jerk That invented work In the Big Rock Candy Mountains. ................ I'll see you all this coming fall In the Big Rock Candy Mountains Enjoy!
