The Sinking Of The Reuben James Recorded by Johnny Horton Written by Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Almanac Singers
C F D7 What were their names tell me what were their names G7 C Did you have a friend on the Good Reuben James
G7 C Have you heard of a ship called that Good Reuben James G7 C Stand by hard fighting men fought for honor and fame F C She flew the stars and stripes of the land of the free G7 C But tonight she's in her grave at the bottom of the sea
F D7 (Now tell me) what were their names tell me what were their names G7 C Did you have a friend on the Good Reuben James F D7 (Now tell me) what were their names tell me what were their names G7 C Did you have a friend on the Good Reuben James
G7 C It was there in the dark of that uncertain night G7 C That we waited for you hoped and waited for that fight F C Then a whine and a rock and the great explosion roared G7 C And they laid Good Reuben James on that cold ocean floor
G7 C Now tonight there are lights in our country so bright G7 C On the farms and the cities they're tellin' of that fight F C And now our mighty battle ships will sail the Bangor Maine G7 C And remember the name of that Good Reuben James
