     &   1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &   1 &

C'est [Gm] un petit bonheur que j'avais rama- [Cm] ssé
Il était tout en [D7] pleurs sur le bord d'un fo- [Gm] ssé
Quand [Gm] il m'a vu passer il s'est mis à cri- [Cm] er
Monsieur ramassez- [D7] moi chez vous amenez- [G] moi

Mes [G] frères m'ont oublié je suis tombé je suis ma- [A] lade
Si [A] vous n'me cueillez point, je vais mourir quelle ba- [D7] lade
Je [G] me ferai petit, tendre, soumis  je vous le [A] jure
Monsieur, je vous en [D7] prie, délivrez-moi de ma tor- [Gm] ture

J'ai [Gm] pris le p'tit bonheur, l'ai mis sous mes [Cm] haillons
J'ai dit faut pas qui [D7] meurt viens t'en dans ma mai- [Gm] son
A- [Gm] lors le p'tit bonheur a fait sa guéri- [Cm] son
Sur le bord de mon [D7] coeur y'avait une chan- [G] son

Mes [G] jours, mes nuits, mes peines, mes deuils, mon mal, tout fut ou- [A] blié
Ma [A] vie de désoeuvré j'avais l'dégoût d'la r'commen- [D7] cer
Quand [G] il pleuvait dehors ou  q'mes amis faisaient des [A] peines
J'prenais mon p'tit bon- [D7] heur et j'lui disais c'est toi ma [Gm] reine

Mon [Gm] bonheur a fleuri, il a fait des bour- [Cm] geons
C'était le para- [D7] dis ça s'voyait sur mon [Gm] front
Hors un matin joli que j'sifflais ce re- [Cm] frain
Mon bonheur est par- [D7] ti sans me donner la [G] main

J'eus [G] beau le supplier le cajoler lui faire des [A] scènes
Lui montrer le grand trou qu'il me faisait au fond du [D7] coeur
Il [G] s'en allait toujours la tête haute sans joie sans [A] haine
Comme s'il ne pouvait [D7] plus voir le soleil dans ma de- [Gm] meure

J'ai [Gm] bien pensé mourir de chagrin et d'en- [Cm] nui
J'avais cessé de [D7] rire c'était toujours la [Gm] nuit
Il me restait l'oublie il me restait l'mé- [Cm] pris
Enfin que j'me suis [D7] dit il me reste la [G] vie

J'ai [G] repris mon bâton, mes deuils, mes peines et mes gue- [A] nilles
Et je bat la semelle dans les pays de malheu- [D7] reux
Au- [G] jourd'hui quand je vois une fontaine ou une [A] fille
Je fais un grand dé- [D7] tour ou bien je me ferme les [G] yeux

Je [A] fais un grand dé- [D7] tour ou bien je me ferme les [G] yeux

4/4 | D - - - - - D - | D
      1   2   3   4     1

Every [G] morning at the mine you could see him arrive [F]    
He stood [G] six foot six and weighed 245 [F]  
Kinda [G] broad at the shoulder and narrow at the hip [F]    
And [G] everybody knew you didn't give no [F] lip to Big [G] John.
Big [Em] John, Big [C] Jo---- [D] ohn, Big Bad [G] John.

No[G] body seemed to know where John called home [F]  
He just [G] drifted into town and stayed all alone [F]  
[G] Didn't say much a-kinda quiet and shy  [F]  
And [G] if you spoke at all you just said [F] hi to Big [G] John

[G] Somebody said he came down from New Orleans  [F]  
Where he [G] got in a fight over a Cajun Queen  [F]  
And a [G] crashing blow from a huge right hand  [F]  
Sent a [G] Louisiana fellow to the Promised Land [F] Big [G] John
Big [Em] John, Big [C] Jo---- [D] ohn, Big Bad [G] John. ...[F] Big [G] John

Then [G] came one day at the bottom of the mine  [F]  
When a [G] timber cracked and the men started [F] crying
[G] Miners were praying and their hearts beat [F] fast
And [G] everybody thought they'd breathed their [F] last 'cept [G] John

Through the [G] dust and the smoke of this man made [F] Hell
Walked a [G] giant of a man that the miners knew [F] well
Grabbed a [G] sagging timber and gave out with a [F] groan
And like a [G] giant oak tree just stood there a- [F] lone  Big [G] John
Big [Em] John, Big [C] Jo---- [D] ohn, Big Bad [G] John. ...[F] Big [G] John

With [G] all of his strength he gave a mighty [F] shove
Then a [G] miner yelled out "There's a light up [G] Gove
And [G] 20 men scrambled from w would be [F] grave
Now there's [G] only one left down there to [F] save Big [G] John

With [G] jacks and timbers they started back [F] down
Then [F] came that rumble way down in the [F] ground
And [G] smoke and gas belched from outta that [F] mine
[G] Everybody knew it was the end of the [F] line for Big [G] John        
Big [Em] John, Big [C] Jo---- [D] ohn, Big Bad [G] John. ...[F] Big [G] John

Now they [G] never re-opened that worthless pit  [F]  
They just [G] placed a marble stand in front of it [F]  
[G] These few lines are written on that [F] stand  [G]  
[NC] "At the bottom of this mine, lies one Helluva man.--BIG JOHN".
Big [Em] John, Big [C] Jo---- [D] ohn, Big Bad [G] John. ...[F] Big [G↓] John

I'd [C] come and go wherever I would [G] please
And I'd [C] scare 'em by the shade tree
And I'd [F] scare 'em by the [C] light pole
But I [C] would not scare my pony on my [G] boat out on the [C] sea

Chorus       
[F] If I had a [C] boat
I'd [F] go out on the [C] ocean
And [F] if I had a [C] pony
I'd [Am] ride him on my [G] boat
And [F] we could all to- [C] gether
[F] Go out on the [C] ocean
I said [C] me upon my [G] pony on my [C] boat

Soon the [A] pines will be falling every- [D] where [D]

Well she [A] asked me if sometime I'd fix her [D] barn [D]
Poor old [Bm] girl she needs a [E7] hand to run the [A] farm [A]

Chorus
And it's [D] good old country [E7] comfort in my [A] bones [A]
Just the [D] sweetest sound my [E7] ears have ever [A] known  [A]

Down at the [A] well they've got a new [D] machine [D]
The foreman [Bm] says it cuts man- [G] power by [E7] fifteen [E7]
Yeah but that [A] ain't natural well so old Clay would [D] say [D]
You see he's a [Bm] horse-drawn man un- [E7] til his dying [A] day [A]
