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

Repeat #2

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

Repeat #2 x2
