Acres Of Clams[bewerken]

1e strofe
I'veCwandered all over this country, prospecting and digging forAmgold
I'veCtunneled, hydraulicked and cradled and I nearlyG7froze in theCcold
AndCI nearly froze in the cold (me boys), and I nearly froze in theAmcold
I'veCtunneled, hydraulicked and cradled and I nearlyG7froze in theCcold
2e strofe
ForCone who got wealthy by mining, I saw many hundreds getAmpoor
ICmade up my mind to go digging for something aG7little moreCsure
ForCsomething a little more sure (me boys), for something a little moreAmsure
ICmade up my mind to go digging for something aG7little moreCsure
3e strofe
ICrolled up my grub in my blanket, I left all my tools on theAmground
ICstarted one morning to shank it for the country theyG7call PugetCSound
For theCcountry they call Puget Sound (me boys), for the country they call PugetAmSound
ICstarted one morning to shank it for the country theyG7call PugetCSound
Laatste strofe
NoClonger a slave of ambition, I laugh at the world and itsAmshams
And ICthink of my happy condition, surrounded byG7acres ofCclams
Sur-Crounded by acres of clams (me boys), surrounded by acres ofAmclams
And ICthink of my happy condition, surrounded byG7acres ofCclams
