Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I first heard this version on a Double LP of The Weaver's 
Greatest Hits. This is definitely the right key, but to 
really match Pete Seeger on the record (and to make it 
a little more fun to play), throw a capo on the fifth 
fret and transpose down five half-steps so everything 
is based around an E minor shape. 


Intro Am E7 E7 E7

Am                           Dm6        E      E7
They used to tell me I was building a dream    

 Am                    Dm6
And so I followed the mob.

 Am                                Dm6
When there was earth to plow or guns to bear,

        E                         E7
I was always there, right on the job...  


 Am                          Dm6        E     E7
They used to tell me I was building a dream     

 Am                   Dm6
With peace and glory ahead

       Am          Am/C       E     Am          Dm6  E     Dm6
Why should I be standing in line, just waiting for bread? 



Am                        E7     A7
Once I built a railroad, made it run,

D        G7          C        E7
Made it race against time;

Dm/F           E7          Am        F7
Once I build a railroad -- now it's done.

Dm6               E7      Am
Brother, can you spare a dime?


Am                    E7    A7
Once I built a tower to the sun,

D        G7          C     E7
Brick and rivet and lime;

Dm/F           E7        Am       F7
Once I build a tower -- now it's done.

Dm6               E7      Am
Brother, can you spare a dime?



Bridge:

A7
Once, in khaki suits, gee, we looked swell,

                              Gm6   A7
Full of that Yankee Doodle de-dum;

 D7
Half a million boots went sloggin' through Hell --

Am                      F7    E7
I was the kid with the drum.


Am                              E7      A7
Say, don't you remember, they called me Al?

D         G7        C    E7
It was Al all the time.

Dm/F              E7      Am       F7
Say, don't you remember?  I'm your pal.

Dm6             E7  E7+5   Am
Buddy can you spare  a   dime?
