Battleship Of Maine - Lyrics & Chords


Mc Kinley called for volunteers,

Then I got my gun,

First  Spaniard I saw coming
I dropped my gun and  run,
It was  all about that Battleship of  Maine.


At war with that great nation Spain,

When I get back to Spain I want to honor my name,

It was  all about that Battleship of  Maine.

Why are you running,
Are you afraid to die,
The reason that I'm running
Is because I cannot fly,
It was all about that Battleship of Maine.

The blood was a-running
And I was running too,
I give my feet good exercise,
I had nothing else to do,
It was all about that Battleship of Maine.

When they were a-chasing me,
I fell down on my knees,
First thing I cast my eyes upon
Was a great  big pot of peas,
It was all about that Battleship of Maine.

The peas they were greasy,
The meat it was fat,
The boys was fighting Spaniards
While I was fighting that,
It was all about that Battleship of Maine.
