Down the track came a hobo hiking and he said, "Boys, I'm not turning,

In the big rock candy mountains, there's a land that's fair and bright In the big rock candy mountains, all the cops have wood-en legs In the big rock candy mountains, you never change your socks In the big rock candy mountains, the jails are made of tin6 E------------------------------------------------------------------------| B-------------------1---1------------------------------------------------| G---0---0---2---2-----------0---0---0---0---2---0------------------------| D---------------------------------------------------3---2---0------------| A------------------------------------------------------------------------| E------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Where the handouts grow on bushes, and you sleep out every night And the bulldogs all have rubber teeth, and the hens lay soft-boil'd eggs And the little streams of alcohol come a-tricklin' down the rocks And you can walk right out of them as soon as you are in

Where the boxcars all are empty, and the sun shines every day The farmers' trees are full of fruit, and the barns are full of hay The brakemen have to tip their hats and the railroad bulls are blind, There ain't no short-handled shovels, no axes, saws, or picks8 E------------------------------------------------------------------------| B------------------------------------------------------------------------| G---0---0---2---2---0---0---0---2---2---0---0---0---2---2---0------------| D------------------------------------------------------------------------| A------------------------------------------------------------------------| E------------------------------------------------------------------------|
All the birds and the bees and the cigarette trees, the lemonade springs I'm-a bound to go where there ain't no snow, the rain don't fall, There's a lake of stew, and of whiskey too, you can paddle all around 'em I'm-a goin' to stay where they sleep all day, where they hung the jerk

Where the bluebird sings in the big rock candy mountains." The wind don't blow in the big rock candy mountains." In a big canoe in the big rock candy mountains." That invented work in the big rock candy mountains."
