Sam Magee Recorded by Johnny Horton Written by Jimmie Driftwood
C F There's a valley by the ol' North Pole C G7 Where ol' Sam Magee died in search of gold C F Where ever I wander in memories C G7 C I see the smoke from the pipe of Sam Magee G7 C (He sees the smoke from the pipe of Sam Magee)
G7 C We had wandered way up there above the Klondike G7 C Where we found the mighty mountain made of gold G7 C There old Sam he got sick and made me promise G7 C That if he die I wouldn't leave him in that cold G7 C (That if he die wouldn't leave him in that cold)
F The next morning he was cold and stiff and lifeless
So I dragged him forty days upon my sled
Till I found a final driftwood near the valley G7 It was there I got the notion in my head
(It was there he got the notion in his head)
C F I took out my matches and I built a fire C G7 And I laid old Sam upon the funeral pyre C F He sat up a grinnin' with his pipe in his mouth C G7 C He sang ho ho this is mighty like the south G7 C (He sang ho ho this is mighty like the south)
F The flames around him had a heavenly glow C G7 And the northern lights were just one big rainbow C F He sat there a grinnin' with his pipe in his mouth C G7 C He sang ho ho this is mighty like the south
G7 C (He sang ho ho this is mighty like the south)
