Would any of you hip cats out there happen to know the chords to this song...I've only heard it once on a 69 show and I'd really love to play it. I'm not even close to good enough with my ears to pick out chords. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me!

Ol' Slewfoot
(C) High on the mountain, tell me what do you see?
Bear tracks, bear tracks, (F) looking back at (C) me
(C) You'd better get your rifle before it's too late
(C) The bear's got a little pig and its (F) headed through the (C) gate

(G) He's big around the middle, (C) he's broad across the rump
(G) Running ninety miles an hour, (C) taking thirty feet a jump
(G) Never been caught, Lord, (C) he's never been treed
(C) Some folks say he looks a (F) lot like (C) me

I saved up my money and I bought me some bees
They started making honey way up in the trees
I chopped down the tree but my honey's all gone
Ol' Slew Foot's done and made himself at home


Winter's coming on and it's forty below
River's frozen over now so where can he go
We chase him up the gully, run him in the well
Shoot him in the bottom just to listen to him yell

Some folks say he looks a lot like me
Code: Select all
How's that?
