Yankee Doodle chords
Traditional British / American

F                         G
Fath'r and I went down to camp,
 F                  G7
Along with Cap'n Goodin',
    F                F
And there we saw the men and boys
   G              F
As thick as hasty puddin'.

F
Yankee Doodle keep it up,
F
Yankee Doodle dandy,
F
Mind the music and the step,
    F        G7       F
And with the girls be handy.

    F                       G
And there we saw a thousand men
   F                G7
As rich as Squire David,
    F                F     
And what they wasted every day,
  G                F
I wish it could be saved.

F
Yankee Doodle keep it up,
F
Yankee Doodle dandy,
F
Mind the music and the step,
    F        G7       F
And with the girls be handy.

     F                        G
The 'lasses they eat it every day,
      F                 G7
Would keep a house a winter;
     F                  F
They have so much, that I'll be bound,
     G                   F
They eat it when they've mind ter.

F
Yankee Doodle keep it up,
F
Yankee Doodle dandy,
F
Mind the music and the step,
    F        G7       F
And with the girls be handy.

    F                      G
And there I see a swamping gun
F                   G7
Large as a log of maple,
 F            F
Upon a deuced little cart,
  G                 F
A load for father's cattle.

F
Yankee Doodle keep it up,
F
Yankee Doodle dandy,
F
Mind the music and the step,
    F        G7       F
And with the girls be handy.

    F                        G
And every time they shoot it off,
   F                  G7
It takes a horn of powder,
    F                  F
and makes a noise like father's gun,
G             F
Only a nation louder.

F
Yankee Doodle keep it up,
F
Yankee Doodle dandy,
F
Mind the music and the step,
    F        G7       F
And with the girls be handy.

  F                     G
I went as nigh to one myself
    F           G7
As 'Siah's inderpinning;
    F              F
And father went as nigh again,
  G                     F
I thought the deuce was in him.

F
Yankee Doodle keep it up,
F
Yankee Doodle dandy,
F
Mind the music and the step,
    F        G7       F
And with the girls be handy.

F                    G
Cousin Simon grew so bold,
  F                            G7
I thought he would have cocked it;
   F              F
It scared me so I shrinked it off
    G                F
And hung by father's pocket.

F
Yankee Doodle keep it up,
F
Yankee Doodle dandy,
F
Mind the music and the step,
    F        G7       F
And with the girls be handy.

    F                 G
And Cap'n Davis had a gun,
   F                      G7
He kind of clapt his hand on't
    F               F
And stuck a crooked stabbing iron
 G              F
Upon the little end on't

And with the girls be handy.

    F                     G
And there I see a pumpkin shell
   F                 G7
As big as mother's bason,
    F               F
And every time they touched it off
     G                  F
They scampered like the nation.

Yankee Doodle dandy,
F
Mind the music and the step,
    F        G7       F

  F                   G
I see a little barrel too,
    F                      G7
The heads were made of leather;
     F                  F
They knocked on it with little clubs
    G                  F
And called the folks together.

Yankee Doodle dandy,
F
Mind the music and the step,

    F                      G
And there was Cap'n Washington,
    F                  G7
And gentle folks about him;
     F                  F
They say he's grown so 'tarnal proud
   G                 F
He will not ride without em'.

   F                      G
He got him on his meeting clothes,
 F                   G7
Upon a slapping stallion;
   F              F
He sat the world along in rows,
   G               F
In hundreds and in millions.

F

Mind the music and the step,

    F                      G
The flaming ribbons in his hat,
     F                       G7
They looked so tearing fine, ah,
  F                 F
I wanted dreadfully to get
   G            F
To give to my Jemima.

  F                    G
I see another snarl of men
  F                        G7
A digging graves they told me,
    F                F
So 'tarnal long, so 'tarnal deep,
      G                  F
They 'tended they should hold me.

   F                         G
It scared me so, I hooked it off,
    F                  G7
Nor stopped, as I remember,
    F                 F
Nor turned about till I got home,

       G              F
Locked up in mother's chamber.

Lyrics added by the South during the Civil War:

Yankee Doodle went to town
D-riding on D pony
Stuck a feather in his hat
And called it macaroni.

F
Yankee Doodle keep it up,
F
Yankee Doodle dandy,
F
Mind the music and the step,
    F        G7       F
And with the girls be handy.

Father and I went down to camp
Along with Captain Gooding
And there we saw the men and boys
As thick as hasty pudding.
F
Yankee Doodle keep it up,
F
Yankee Doodle dandy,
F
Mind the music and the step,
    F        G7       F
And with the girls be handy.

There was Captain Washington
Upon a slapping stallion
A-giving orders to his men
I guess there was a million.
