[Verse]

      D      A7         D        A7      D    A7      D     
On a Summer day in the month of May, a burly bum came a-hikng.
              A7           D     A7           D      A7      D
Down a shady lane through sugar cane. He was looking for his liking,
       A7             D/A                    A7              D
As he roamed along he sang this song of the land of milk and honey.
                 A7      D       A7         D          A7     D  
Where a bum can stay for many a day, And he won't need any money.


[Chorus]

     D                      
     Oh, the buzzin of the bees   in the cigarette trees
         G          D                   G        A7
     The soda water fountain,    By the lemonade springs,
     A7         D         Bm             D/A      A7     D
     Where the blue bird sings,   In the Big Rock Candy Mountain. 


[Verse]

 D               A7     D       A7        D      A7         D  
In the Big Rock Candy Mountain boys, You never change your socks,
              A7     D     A7        D        A7        D    
And little streams of alcohol, come trickling down the rocks.
          A7             D                        A7                D
All the Sheriffs have to tip their hats. And the railroad bulls are blind.
          A7                D        A7
There's a lake of stew, and whiskey too. 
          D        A7         D      A7  
You can paddle all around in a big canoe,
        D         A7      D
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.


[Chorus]

     D       
     Oh, the buzzin of the bees   in the cigarette trees
         G          D                   G        A7
     The soda water fountain,    By the lemonade springs,
     A7         D         Bm             D/A      A7     D
     Where the blue bird sings,   In the Big Rock Candy Mountain. 


[Verse]

       D        A7     D         A7        D         A7      D
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains boys,  the cops have wooden legs,
             A7         D     A7             D        A7           D     
The bulldogs all have rubber teeth,  And the hens lay soft boiled eggs.
     A7             D                    D7                D 
The boxcars are all empty there, and the sun shines every day,
             A7             D         A7            D       A7    D    
I'm bound to go where there ain't no snow,  In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.


[Chorus]

      D                      
     Oh, the buzzin of the bees   in the cigarette trees
         G          D                   G        A7
     The soda water fountain,    By the lemonade springs,
     A7         D         Bm             D/A      A7     D
     Where the blue bird sings,   In the Big Rock Candy Mountain. 


[Verse]

       D        A7    D          A7         D       A7       D
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains boys , the jails are made of tin
            A7          D    A7            D        A7      D
And you can walk right out again , as soon as they put you in,
       A7                    D/A         A7             D
There ain't no short handled shovels, no axes, saws or picks,
           A7                 D        A7
I'm bound to stay where you sleep all day,
            D         A7         D      A7           D        A7      D  
Where they hung the jerk that invented work,  In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.


[Chorus]

      D                      
     Oh, the buzzin of the bees   in the cigarette trees
         G          D                   G        A7
     The soda water fountain,    By the lemonade springs,
     A7         D         Bm             D/A      A7     D
     Where the blue bird sings,   In the Big Rock Candy Mountain.
 

[Verse]

      D         A7     D        A7           D     A7         D      
In the evening as the sun went down and the jungle fires are burning,
Down the track came a hobo hiking and he said boys I'm not turning, 
I'm heading for a land that's far away beside the Chrystal fountains,
So come with me and well go and see the Big Rock Candy Mountains 

[Chorus]

      D                      
     Oh, the buzzin of the bees   in the cigarette trees
         G          D                   G        A7
     The soda water fountain,    By the lemonade springs,
     A7         D         Bm             D/A      A7     D
     Where the blue bird sings,   In the Big Rock Candy Mountain. 


[Verse]

         D    A7        D          A7        D          A7        D
In those Big Rock Candy Mountains there's a land that's fair and bright
Where the handouts grow on bushes and you sleep out every night
Where the boxcars are all empty and the sun shines every day
On the birds and the bees and the cigarette trees 
Where the lemonade springs, where the blue bird sings.
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.


[Chorus]

     D                      
     Oh, the buzzin of the bees   in the cigarette trees
         G          D                   G        A7
     The soda water fountain,    By the lemonade springs,
     A7         D         Bm             D/A      A7     D
     Where the blue bird sings,   In the Big Rock Candy Mountain. 


I'll see you all this coming fall, in the Big Rock Candy Mountains!!
