Acres Of ClamsBewerken

1e strofe
I've C wandered all over this country, prospecting and digging for Am gold
I've C tunneled, hydraulicked and cradled and I nearly G7 froze in the C cold
And C I nearly froze in the cold (me boys), and I nearly froze in the Am cold
I've C tunneled, hydraulicked and cradled and I nearly G7 froze in the C cold
2e strofe
For C one who got wealthy by mining, I saw many hundreds get Am poor
I C made up my mind to go digging for something a G7 little more C sure
For C something a little more sure (me boys), for something a little more Am sure
I C made up my mind to go digging for something a G7 little more C sure
3e strofe
I C rolled up my grub in my blanket, I left all my tools on the Am ground
I C started one morning to shank it for the country they G7 call Puget C Sound
For the C country they call Puget Sound (me boys), for the country they call Puget Am Sound
I C started one morning to shank it for the country they G7 call Puget C Sound
Laatste strofe
No C longer a slave of ambition, I laugh at the world and its Am shams
And I C think of my happy condition, surrounded by G7 acres of C clams
Sur- C rounded by acres of clams (me boys), surrounded by acres of Am clams
And I C think of my happy condition, surrounded by G7 acres of C clams
