O'Leary's Cow recorded by Johnny Horton written by Ray Winkler, Leroy Morris, Dave Stone C October eighteen seventy one F
C That's when this great big fire begun F C The Windy City was a ball of flame
C And O'Leary's cow was the one to blame The firemen fought for days on end F
C They could fight the fire but they couldn't fight the wind F
C The wind fanned the flames and it started again
C And nobody knew if it ever would end Am She kicked up her heels with out a hint G7 Kicked the lantern over and away she went Am The world couldn't help but be amazed C How one little cow started such a blaze The rich and the poor were both alike F
C Fighting and praying for their life F C Then at last the Lord looked down
C And he sent a little rain to the windy town Repeat #1 & 3 The after math was a sight to see F C The loss of life and property F C The people said it was a shame
C But O'Lear'y's cow still caught the blame Repeat #3
