Chorus 1: (a capella until you reach "to a Cajun.."

Oh, [A] play me some mountain [D] music
like [A] grandma and grandpa used to play [D]
Then I'll [A] float on down the riv-[D]er
to a Ca-[E]jun hidea-[A]way.

Verse 1:

[A] Drift away like Tom [D] Sawyer
Ride a raft[A] with ol' Huck [D] Finn
Take a nap[A] like Rip Van Winkle,
daze [G] dreamin' A-[E]gain.

Chorus 2--same chords as chorus one for the first 3 lines.  Then:

to a Ca-[Bm]jun hidea-[E]way.

(guitar solo)

Verse 2 (same chords as 1)

Swim across the river
Just to prove that I'm a man
Spend the day bein' lazy
Just bein' nature's friend

v3

Climb a long tall hick'ry
Bend it over, skinnin' cats
Playin' baseball with chert rocks
Usin' sawmill slabs for bats

Bridge:

(also a capella, like first chorus, until you reach "'cause that's where..")

Play some [A] back-home come-on [D] music
that [A] comes from the heart [D]
Play [A] something with lots of feel-[D]in'
'cause that's where [Bm] music has to [E] start.

(chorus 2)
on last line "...a cajun hideaway aay-aay-aaaiiiaay" - then a drum solo
ensues and the tempo increases--go back to the first chorus for the ending,
but play all of the chords.

Enjoy!

. This just ain't right! Chord progression misses all the sevenths etc. close but not close enough. I think version 3 may be on to something!

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. these were the wrong chords to the song and not transcribe for guitar, the key should start in the key of G.
