Extract from the 1953 film Calamity Jane.
This song is actually in F so to keep it simple (and in key) I play with my capo on 5.
Tabbed from a youtube video so any corrections etc welcome!

Verse 1
C
Oh the Deadwood stage is rolling on over the plains
                                                       G                               
With the curtains flapping and the driver slapping the reins
                C
Beautiful sky a wonderful day
G                                           C
Whip crack away whip crack away whip crack away

Verse 2
C
Oh the Deadwood stage is heading on over the hills
                                                  G
Where the Injun arrows are thicker than porcupine quills
                  C
Dangerous land no time to delay
   G                                           C
So whip crack away whip crack away whip crack away

Bridge
              F                 C           G            C
We're heading straight for town loaded down with a fancy cargo
F                 C         G      G
Care of Wells and Fargo Illinois - boy

Verse 3 
       C
Oh the Deadwood stage is coming on over the crest
                                                G
Like a homing pigeon that's hankering after its nest
                         C
Twenty three miles we've covered today
   G                                           C
So whip crack away whip crack away whip crack away

Bridge
              F             C              G                   C
The wheels go turning round homeward bound can't you hear them humming
F               C             G      G
Happy times are coming for to stay - hey

Verse 4
         C
We'll be home tonight by the light of the silvery moon
                                                       G
And our hearts are thumping like a mandolin plunking a tune
                    C
When I get home I'm fixing to stay
   G                                           C
So whip crack away whip crack away whip crack away
G                                           G  C
Whip crack away whip crack away whip crack away
