Fred Small – If I Were A Moose chords

C  Em  Dm  G

C EmIf I were a moose and you were a cow
Dm GWould you love me anyhow?
Dm EmWould you introduce me to your folks
F GWould you tell your friends, "No moose jokes!"
G C Am Dm G C GIf I were a moose and you were a cow
C EmWould you invite me to your club
Dm GAnd risk a cruel bovine snub
Dm EmWould you lead me down the receiving line
F GAnd boldly boast, "This moose is mine!"
F G C AmWould your parents watch us graze
F G C AmShake their heads, "It's just a phase"
Dm E7 Am Am7Or would they thank the stars above
D GTheir precious heifer's found her love?
C EmWould your grandparents change their will?
Dm GThey'd really expected a Holstein bull
Dm Em"For this we toiled before the plow
F GYou bring home someone who's not even a cow
F G C Am"There's lots of proper stock around
F G C AmLike that nice young Guernsey at Farmer Brown's
Dm E7 Am Am7Or that last one we ridiculed and cursed
D GOn second thought you could do worse
E7 Am"But if you think this thing will last
F G C AmCould he learn to moo and eat our grass
F G C Am Shed his antlers in the dirt
D7 G Could you persuade him to convert?"
C EmIf our anatomies did not quite fit
Dm GWould you make the best of it
Dm EmWould you nuzzle up so near
F GAnd hum sweet cow tunes in my ear?
F G C Am Or would you sadly break it off
F G C AmWhen all the hillside sneered and scoffed
Dm E7 Am Am7 "You know these moose are all the same
D G They're lazy, they're stupid, they come from Maine"
C EmIt's true things slip a moose's mind
Dm GThat cows remember all the time
Dm EmBulbous nose and knobby knees
F GA coat that harbors ticks and fleas
F G C AmBut a moose can be a handy thing
F G C AmWhen hungry wolves come visiting
Dm E7 Am Am7 In icy gust of winter storm
D GOur fur is deep and dry and warm
C EmAnd someday should your milk run dry
Dm GAnd farmer stare with baleful eye
Dm EmIn dead of night I'd slip your noose
F GAnd lead you home to the land of moose
G C Am Dm G C GIf I were a moose and you were a cow
[like bridge]
E7 AmIf hunters came to do me harm
F G C Am Would you hide me in the barn
F G C AmWould all the herd come on the run
D7 G7And glare until they dropped their guns?
[Interlude] C Em Dm G [Outro]
Dm EmMight you permit a goodnight kiss
F GCould you learn to love wet moose lips?
F G C Am F C AmIf I were a moose and you were a cow
Dm G C Am Dm G C If you were a cow and I were a moose
