Original Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXrHK2-6cGE&ab_channel=BrianMiller-Topic
All chords at the end of a line are played twice unless other wise stated this is mostly
in the womans part where she sings one line into the next without a rest.

[Verse I]
    C                    F
One evenin' in june as I rambled
    C                       F
The green woods and valleys among
C                         F
Mosquitos were buzzin' harmonious
   C                          F
In tune with the whippoorwill song
    C                         G
The frogs in the marshes were croakin'
    C                             Am
The tree toads were whistlin' for rain
        C                        F
And the partridges round me were drummin'
       C                       F
On the banks of the little Eau Pleine

[Instrumental]
C  G

[Verse III]
       C                     F
It was then I beheld a young maiden
        C                    F
Who was walkin' alone on the shore
        C                        F
She was mournin' off for a young raftsman
         C                      F
sayin' I fear I will see him no more
        C                        G
He went off on a fleet with Ross Gamble
       C                     Am
And he left me in sorrow and pain
         C                        F
And it's over two months since he started
         C                       F
From the banks of the little Eau Pleine

[Instrumental]
C  G

[Verse IV]
C                              F x1
His pants were made out of two meal sacks
       C                            F
with a patch of foot square on each knee
    C                         F x1
His shirt and his jacket were dyed
         C                   F
with the bark of a butternut tree
   C                       G x1
He wore a large open-faced ticker
     C                      Am
With almost a yard of steel chain
     C                      F
when he went away with Ross Gamble
         C                       F
From the banks of the little Eau Pleine

[Instrumental]
C  G

[Verse V]
       C                              F x1
He was stout and broad shouldered and manly
    C                         F
His height was about six-foot-one
    C                        F x1
His hair was inclined to be sandy
    C                      F
His whiskers as red as the sun
    C                       G x1
His name it was honest John Murphy
    C                      Am
And on it there nere was a stain
       C                        F
For he loved the bold Wisconsin River
         C                      F
It's the reason he left the Eau Pleine

[Instrumental]
C  G

[Verse VI]
        C                         F
If John Murphy's the name of your raftsman
  C                     F
I used to know him very well
    C                      F
But sad is the tale I must tell you
     C                         F
Your Johnny was drowned in the dells
   C                           G
We buried him 'neath the scrub Nor'way
       C                Am
You'll never behold him again
   C                               F
No stone marks the spot where your Johnny
       C                       F
Sleeps far from the little Eau Pleine

[Instrumental]
C  G

[Verse VII]
   C                 F
My curses attend you Wisconsin
         C                         F
May your rapids and falls cease to roar
    C                 F x1
May every toll havin' sandbar
C                              F
Be as dry as a log schoolhouse floor
        C                      G
May the willows on all of your islands
    C                         Am
Lie down like a field of ripe grain
    C                   F
for takin' my only love Johnny
         C                       F
From the Banks of the Little Eau Pleine
