CHORUS:

F                      Dm
Sweet mother Michigan, father Superior
Bb                            C
Coming down from Mackinaw and Sault St. Marie
F                      Dm
Blue water Huron, flow down to Lake Erie-O
Bb                  C             F   C
Fall to Ontario and run on out to sea


(Verse 1)

    F
The Great Lakes are a diamond 
       Dm
On the hand of North America
  Bb                            C
A brightly shining jewel on the friendship bordering
F                  Dm
Freshwater highway coming down from Canada
Bb                        C                 
All around the coastline, can't you hear them sing?


(CHORUS)

F                      Dm
Sweet mother Michigan, father Superior
Bb                            C
Coming down from Mackinaw and Sault St. Marie
F                      Dm
Blue water Huron, flow down to Lake Erie-O
Bb                  C             F
Fall to Ontario and run on out to sea


(Bridge)

Dm                           Bb
Hearty are the seamen on the ships that load the iron ore
Dm                             C
Sailing out of Thunder Bay and bound for Buffalo
Dm
And hearty are the fishermen 
     Bb
Just like their fathers were before
Dm                         C               F
Say they'll bury me at sea come my time to go

(Interlude)

Dm Bb C C
 
(Verse 2)

F                         
Down below the quarterdecks 
    Dm
The old men mend the fishing nets
    Bb
And up above the windy bridge  
    C
The young men curse into the wind
F                                
And up and down the Windsor Straits 
    Dm
The wives and mothers lie awake
    Bb                             C               F    
And pray our lady of the lake Will send them home again
C
Singin'

Coming down from Mackinaw and Sault St. Marie
F                      Dm
Blue water Huron, flow down to Lake Erie-O
Bb                  C             F  C
Fall to Ontario and run on out to sea


(CHORUS) 

F                      Dm
Sweet mother Michigan, father Superior
Bb                            C
Coming down from Mackinaw and Sault St. Marie
F                      Dm
Blue water Huron, flow down to Lake Erie-O
Bb                  C             Dm    Bb
