I was walkin' down a steep street hill
    Em             C         D
My mouth began to let words spill
G                        G/F#
People gathered, off and on 
   Em         Em               C      D
I didn't like that, I went to Lake Huron

Saw a train and hopped underneath
Made it there by the skin of my teeth
I heard a poem say weak and weary
Didn't like that, I went to Lake Erie

Got there and I spoke my thoughts
No one liked the words I brought
Man came up, he said I'm inferior
I didn't like that, I went to Lake Superior

Got there and it was freezin' cold
I spoke, folks gathered, young and old
Ate some trout, I wanted to fish again
So I headed out towards Lake Michigan

Tried to enter the big U.S.
They didn't let me in, I guess
Told me that I had to go
I  headed home, to Lake Ontario

I made it there a little bit dead
Folks liked the words I said
Woman asked if I like cake
   Em    NC
I said "No Ma'am just love Great Lakes"

Oh yeah
Love 'em so much                                     
Swim in 'em,  all day               
Snorkelin' and,  runnin' around
