Grand Coulee Dam 


            G                                C
1. Now, the world holds seven wonders as the travellers always tell.
         D                          D7                  G
    some gardens and some towers, I guess you know them well.
                                      C
    But now the greatest wonder is in Uncle Sam's fair land,
             D                          D7               G
    itís the big Columbia river and the big Grand Coulee Dam.
 
       G                                       C
2. She heads up the Canadian Rockies where the rippling waters glide,
            D                              D7              G
    comes a-roaring down the canyon for to meet that salty tide
                                         C
    of the great Pacific Ocean where the sun sets in the west,
           D                               D7              G
    in the big Grand Coulee country in the land I love the best.
 
          G                             C
3. In the misty crystal glitter of that wild and windward spray,
             D                              D7           G
    men have fought the pounding waters and met a watery grave.
                                               C
  While she tore their boats to splinters, she gave men dreams to dream,
           D                                   D7                G
    of the day the Coulee Dam would cross that wild and restless stream.

              G                                C
4. Now, Uncle Sam took up the challenge in the year of thirty three,
            D                          D7             G
    for the farmer and the factory and all of you and me.
                                           C
    He said: roll along, Columbia, you can roll down to the sea
        D                                    D7               G
    but river, while you're rambling you can do some work for me !
 

          G                             C
5. In the misty crystal glitter of that wild and windward spray,
             D                              D7           G
    men have fought the pounding waters and met a watery grave.
                                               C
  While she tore their boats to splinters, she gave men dreams to dream,
           D                                   D7                G
    of the day the Coulee Dam would cross that wild and restless stream.
 
            G                             C
6. Now from Washington and Oregon you can hear the factories hum,
           D                               D7            G
    making chrome and making manganese and white aluminium.
                                         C
    Now roars the Flying Fortress for to fight for Uncle Sam,
              D                            D7               G
    along the roaring King Columbia by the big Grand Coulee dam.
 
          G                             C
7. In the misty crystal glitter of that wild and windward spray,
             D                              D7           G
    men have fought the pounding waters and met a watery grave.
                                               C
  While she tore their boats to splinters, she gave men dreams to dream,
           D                                   D7                G
    of the day the Coulee Dam would cross that wild and restless stream.
