BEAR CREEK BLUES


[D]Way up on Bear Creek

Watching the sun go down
[G]Way up on Bear Creek
Watching he sun go [D]down
Well, it [A7]makes me feel like
I'm on my last go [D]'round

[D]Well, the water up on Bear Creek

Tastes like cherry wine
Yeah, the [G]water up on Bear Creek
Tastes like cherry [D]wine
One [A7]drink of that water
You stay drunk all the [D]time

{ci:Instrumental:}

[D]   [G]
[D]   [A7]    [D]

[D]If you stay up on Bear Creek

You'll get like Jesse James
If you [G]stay up on Bear Creek
You'll get like Jesse [D]James
You'll [A7]take two pistols
And rob that Bear Creek [D]train

{ci:Instrumental:}

[D]   [G]
[D]   [A7]    [D]

[D]I'm going.......high, high

Up on some lonesome hill
I'm [G]going....... high, high
Up on some lonesome [D]hill
Look [A7]down on Bear Creek
Where my good gal used to [D]live

[D]Way up on Bear Creek

Watching the sun go down
[G]Way up on Bear Creek
Watching he sun go [D]down
Well [A7]it makes me feel like
I'm on my last go [A7]'round

{ci:Ending:}
