ALBERTA BOUND

G
Oh the prairie lights are shinin' bright

The Chinook wind is movin' in
C
Tomorrow night I'll be Alberta bound
D7
And though I've done the best I could

My old luck ain't been so good,
G
Tomorrow night I'll be Alberta bound.

No one I've met could e're forget

The Rocky Mountain sunset
C
It's a pleasure just to be Alberta bound,
D7
I long to see my next of kin

To know what kind of shape they're in
G
Tomorrow night I'll be Alberta bound.

C G
ALBERTA BOUND, ALBERTA BOUND
D G
IT'S GOOD TO BE ALBERTA BOUND
C G
ALBERTA BOUND, ALBERTA BOUND
D G
IT'S GOOD TO BE ALBERTA BOUND

G
The skyline of Toronto

Is somethin' you'll get onto,
C
But they say you've got to live there for awhile
D7
And if you got the money

You can get yourself a honey
G
With a written guarantee to make you smile.

But it's snowin' in the city

And the streets are brown and gritty
C
I know there's pretty girls all over town
D7
But they never seem to find me

And the one I left behind me
G
Is the reason that I'll be Alberta bound.

Last night all alone in a bar room.

Met a girl with a drink in her hand.

She had ruby red lips cold black hair

Then she came and sat down at my table

And she placed her soft hands in mine.
G G7 C
I found myself wanting to kiss her

For temptation was flowing like wine.

To push my conscience aside.

Take me away from here and be my man.

To let strange lips lead me on

Al most persuaded

But your sweet love makes me stop and go

BOBBY MCGEE

G
Busted flat in Baton Rouge waitin' for a train

Feelin' nearly faded as my jeans.

Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it
rained
D7 G
Rode us all the way to New Orleans.

I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red
bandanna

I was playin' soft while Bobby sang the blues.

Windshield wipers slappin' time, I was holdin'
Bobby's hand in mine
D G
We sang every song that driver knew.

FREEDOM'S JUST ANOTHER WORD FOR NOTHIN'
LEFT TO LOSE,

NOTHIN' DON'T MEAN NOTHIN' IF IT AIN'T FREE.
C G
FEELIN' GOOD WAS EASY, LORD, WHEN HE SANG
THE BLUES.
D D7
FEELIN' GOOD WAS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME,
G
GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME AND BOBBY MCGEE.

G
From the Kentucky coal mines to the California
sun,
D
Bobby shared the secrets of my soul.

Through all kinds of weather, through everything
we done,
D7 G
Hey, Bobby's body kept me from the cold.

One day up near Salinas, Lord, I let him slip
away,
G7 C
He's lookin' for that home and I hope he finds it.
G
But I'd trade all my tomorrows for one single
yesterday,
D G
To be holdin' Bobby's body next to mine.

C G
FREEDOM'S JUST ANOTHER WORD FOR NOTHIN'
LEFT TO LOSE,
D D7 G …G7
AND NOTHIN' AIN'T WORTH NOTHIN', BUT IT'S FREE.
C G
AND FEELIN' GOOD WAS EASY, LORD, WHEN BOBBY
SANG THE BLUES,

AND FEELIN' GOOD WAS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME

OH, GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME AND MY BOBBY

CITY OF NEW ORLEANS

C G C
Riding on the City of New Orleans,
Am F C
Illinois Central, Monday morning rail
C G C
Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders
Am G C
Three conductors, twenty-five sacks of mail

Am Em
All along the southbound odyssey the train pulls
out of Kankakee
G D
Rolls along past houses, farms, and fields
Am Em
Passing towns that have no name, freight yards
full of old Black men
G C
And the graveyards of rusted automobiles.

GOOD MORNIN' AMERICA, HOW ARE YOU?

DON'T YOU KNOW ME, I'M YOUR NATIVE SON?

DONE

C G C
Dealing card games with the old men in the club
car,
Am F C
Penny a point, ain't no one keeping score.
C G C
Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle
Am G C
And feel the wheels grumbling 'neath the floor.

Am Em
And the sons of Pullman porters and the sons of
engineers
G D
Ride their fathers' magic carpet made of steam
Am Em
Mothers with their babes asleep, rockin' to the
gentle beat
G C
And the rhythm of the rails is all they dream.

CHORUS

C G C
Night time on the City of New Orleans,
Am F C
Changing cars in Memphis, Tennessee
C G C
Halfway home and we'll be there by morning
Am G
Through the Mississippi darkness rolling down to

the sea

Am Em
But all the towns and people seem to fade into a
bad dream

And the steel rail still ain't heard the news
Am
The conductor sings his song again,

"Passengers will please refrain"

This train has got the disappearing railroad

It's so nice to meet an old friend and pass the

Is the ice still in the river, are the old folks still the

if she dropped a name or two?
C C7 F
Is the home team still on fire, do they still win all
the games,

And by the way, did she mention my name?

C C7 F
Is the landlord still a loser, do his signs hang in
the hall?
G G7
Are the young girls still as pretty in the city in the

fall?
C C7 F
Does the laughter on their faces still put the sun
to shame?
G G7 C
And by the way, did she mention my name?

F G7 C
Did she mention my name just in passing?
C Am F
And when the talk ran high did the look in her

Is the old roof still leaking when the late snow
turns to rain?
G G7 C
And by the way, did she mention my name?

And looking at the rain, do you remember if she

Won't you say hello from someone, there'll be

It ain't no use in calling out my name babe,

I can't hear you anymore

I once loved a woman, a child untold

I gave her my heart, but she wanted my soul

But don't think twice, it's alright

I'm goin' down that long lonesome road babe,

Where I'm bound I can't tell

But goodbye is too good a word babe,

So I'll just say fare-thee-well

I ain't sayin' you treated me unkind

Kawliga was a wooden indian standing by the
door

He fell in love with an indian maiden over in the
antique store

Kaw - li – ga, … just stood there and never let it

So she could never answer yes or no

Em
He always wore his sunday feathers and held a
tomahawk

The maiden wore her beads and braids and
hoped some day he'd talk
Kaw - li – ga, … too stubborn to ever show a
B7

Because his heart was made of knotty pine

[NORMAL RHYTHM]

POOR OL' KAWLIGA, HE NEVER GOT A KISS

MISSED

And then one day a wealthy customer bought the

And wishes he was still an old pine tree

D D7
Cowboys ain't easy to love and they're harder to

THEY'LL NEVER STAY HOME AND THEY'RE ALWAYS
ALONE

EVEN WITH SOMEONE THEY LOVE

(KEYCHANGE)

E E7
A cowboy loves smokey old pool rooms and
A
clear mountain mornings
B B7
Little warm puppies and children and girls of the

night

And them that don't know him won't like him

And them that do sometimes won't know how to

take him

He ain’t wrong he’s just different

you think he's right

D7 C7
It was the third of June, another sleepy, dusty
D7
Delta day,
C7
I was out choppin' cotton and my brother was
D7
balin' hay
G7
And at dinner time we stopped and walked back
to the house to eat,
D7 C7
And Mama hollered at the back door, "Y'all
D7
remember to wipe your feet!"
G7
And then she said, "I got some news this mornin'
from Choctaw Ridge
D7 C7
Today Billy Joe MacAllister jumped off the
D7
Tallahatchie Bridge."

And Papa said to Mama as he passed around
the blackeyed peas,
"Oh, Billy Joe never had a lick of sense, pass the
biscuits, please.
There's five more acres in the lower forty I've got
to plough."
And Mama said it was shame about Billy Joe,
anyhow.
”Seems like nothin' ever comes to no good up on
Choctaw Ridge,
And now Billy Joe MacAllister's jumped off the
Tallahatchie Bridge.”

And Brother said he recollected when he and
Tom and Billie Joe,
Put a frog down my back at the Carroll County
picture show.
55
And wasn't I talkin' to him after church last
Sunday night?
"I'll have another piece of apple pie, you know it
don't seem right.
I saw him at the sawmill yesterday on Choctaw
Ridge,
And now you tell me Billie Joe's jumped off the
Tallahatchie Bridge."

And Mama said to me, "Child, what's happened
to your appetite?
I've been cookin' all morning and you haven't
touched a single bite."
That nice young preacher, Brother Taylor,
dropped by today,
Said he'd be pleased to have dinner on Sunday,
oh, by the way,
He said he saw a girl that looked a lot like you up
on Choctaw Ridge,"
And she and Billy Joe was throwing somethin' off
the Tallahatchie Bridge"

A year has come 'n' gone since we heard the
news 'bout Billy Joe,
And Brother married Becky Thompson, they
bought a store in Tupelo.
There was a virus going 'round, Papa caught it
and he died last Spring,
And now Mama doesn't seem to wanna do much
of anything.
And me, I spend a lot of time pickin' flowers up
on Choctaw Ridge,
And drop them into the muddy water off the
Tallahatchie Bridge.

THEY SAIL UPON THE SEAS

IN THE LAND OF HONAH LEE

Together they would travel

On a boat with billowed sail,
F C Em Am
Jackie kept a look … out,
D7 G
Perched on Puffs gigantic tail.
C Em
Noble kings and princes
F C
Would bow when e’er they came,

Pirate ships would low'r their flag

When Puff roared out his name.

Oh, …

CHORUS

A dragon lives forever,

But not so little boys,

Painted wings and giant rings

Make way for other toys,

One gray night it happened,
F C
Jackie Paper came no more,
F C Em Am
And Puff that mighty dragon
D7 G C
He ceased his fearless roar.
G7
Oh, …

CHORUS

His head was bent in sorrow,
F C
Green scales fell like rain,
F C Em Am
Puff no longer went to play
D7 G
Along the cherry lane
C Em
Without his life long friend,
F C
Puff could not be brave,
F C Em Am
So Puff, that mighty dragon
D7 G C
Slowly slipped into his cave.

CHORUS

C Em
Now Puff the Magic Dragon
F C
Plays by the sea no more
F C Em Am
He has no-one to play with
D7 G
Like he had before
C Em
But, “hark”, what do I hear now
F C
It’s a boy comin’ down the lane
F C Em Am
Jackie’s son has come to see

If Puff will play again

TWO HUMP BACK CAMELS AND TWO CHIMPANZEES
Dm
TWO CATS, TWO RATS, TWO ELEPHANTS BUT SURE
AS YOU'RE BORN
C Dm G C
NOAH, DON'T YOU FORGET MY U--NI--CORN.

C Dm
Now Noah was there and he answered the callin'
G C
And he finished up the ark as the rain started
fallin'

And he marched in the animals two by two
C Dm G C
And he sung out as they went through

HEY LORD, I GOT YOU TWO ALLIGATORS AND A

71
Dm
TWO CATS, TWO RATS, TWO ELEPHANTS BUT SURE

LORD, I JUST DON'T SEE YOUR U-----NI--CORNS.

C Dm
Well, Noah looked out through the driving rain,
G C
But the unicorns were hiding - playing silly
games,

They were kickin' and a-spashin' while the rain
was pourin'
C Dm G C
Oh them foolish u-----ni--corns.

C Dm
And then the ark started moving and it drifted
with the tide,
G C
And the unicorns looked up from the rock and
cried,
Dm
And the water came up and sort of floated them
away,
C Dm G
That's why you've never seen a unicorn to this

day.

C Dm
YOU'LL SEE A LOT OF ALLIGATORS AND A WHOLE

YOU'LL SEE HUMP BACK CAMELS AND CHIMPANZEES

YOU'LL SEE CATS AND RATS AND ELEPHANTS BUT

I hear footsteps slowly walking
D7 G ... D7
As they gently walk across the lonely floor.

And a voice is softly saying

Now the love that kept this old heart beating
D7 G
Has been shattered by the closing of the door.

CHORUS

THERE IS A TAVERN IN THE TOWN

MY INTERPRETATION
_______________________________

G
There is a tavern in the town (in the town),
D
And there my true love sits him down (sits him
down),

clouds rolling,
G D
I could feel inside me and see all around me

This land was made for you and me.

CHORUS

THOSE WERE THE DAYS

MY INTERPRETATION
_______________________________

Am Dm Am
Once upon a time there was a tavern
F Dm
Where we used to raise a glass or two.
Am Dm Am
Remember how we laughed away the hours,
G
And dreamed of all the great things we would

do.

Am
THOSE WERE THE DAYS, MY FRIEND

WE THOUGHT THEY'D NEVER END,
G G7 C
WE'D SING AND DANCE FOREVER AND A DAY;
Dm
WE'D LIVE THE LIFE WE CHOOSE,
Am
WE'D FIGHT AND NEVER LOOSE,
E E7 Am
FOR WE WERE YOUNG AND SURE TO HAVE OUR
WAY.
Dm
LA LA LA LA LA LA, LA LA, LA LA LA LA
E7
THOSE WERE THE DAYS, OH YES, THOSE WERE
Am
THE DAYS

Am Dm Am
Then the busy years went rushing by us
F Dm
Lost our starry notions on the way
Am Dm Am
If by chance I'd see you in the tavern,
G E
We'd smile at one another and we'd say

CHORUS

Am Dm Am
Just tonight I stood before the tavern
F Dm
Nothing seemed the way it used to be
Am Dm Am
In the glass I saw a strange reflection,
G E
Was that lonely fellow really me?

CHORUS

Am Dm Am
Through the door there came familiar laughter
F Dm
Saw your face and heard you call my name
Am Dm Am
Oh my friends we're older, but no wiser,
G E
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same

CHORUS

deceive me,

But the devil take the women, for they never can

be easy

CHORUS

I went into my chamber, all for to take a slumber,

I dreamt of gold and jewels and for sure it was

no wonder.

But Jenny took my charges and she filled them
up with water,

Then sent for Captain Farrel to be ready for the

slaughter.

It was early in the morning, as I rose up for
travel,

Captain Farrel
C Am
I first produced my pistol, for she stole away my
rapier,
F C
But I couldn't shoot the water so a prisoner I was

taken.

Now some men take delight in the drinking and
