Grand Coulee Dam 
Woody Guthrie
standard tuning- capo anywhere

             G                             C
Well, the world has seven wonders that the travelers always tell,
     G                         D
Some gardens and some towers, I guess you know them well,
         G                         C
But now the greatest wonder is in Uncle Sam's fair land
             D                                          G
It's the big Columbia River and the big Grand Coulee Dam.

      G                            C
She heads up the Canadian Rockies where the rippling waters glide,
       G                           D
Comes a-roaring down the canyon to meet the salty tide,
        G                           C
Of the wide Pacific Ocean where the sun sets in the West
           D                                                G
And the big Grand Coulee country in the land I love the best.

       G                            C
In the misty crystal glitter of that wild and wind ward spray,
         G                              D
Men have fought the pounding waters and met a watery grave,
          G                                 C
Well, she tore their boats to splinters but she gave men dreams to dream
        D                                                        G
Of the day the Coulee Dam would cross that wild and wasted stream.

         G                      C
Uncle Sam took up the challenge in the year of 'thirty-three,
        G                          D
For the farmer and the factory and all of you and me,
           G                    C
He said, "Roll along, Columbia, you can ramble to the sea,
     D                                                        G
But river, while you're rambling, you can do some work for me."

        G                            C
Now in Washington and Oregon you can hear the factories hum,
        G                               D
Making chrome and making manganese and light aluminum,
     G                                     C
And there roars the flying fortress now to fight for Uncle Sam,
         D                                                G
Spawned upon the King Columbia by the big Grand Coulee Dam.
