On a D summer A7 day In the D month of A7 May
A D burly A7 bum came D hiking Down a shady A7 lane
Through the D sugar A7 cane He was D looking A7 for his D liking
As he A7 roamed along He D sang a song
Of the A7 land of milk and D honey Where a bum can A7 stay
For D many a A7 day And he D won’t A7 need any D money
D Oh the buzzin’ of the bees In the cigarette trees
Near the G soda water D fountain At the A7 lemonade springs
Where the D bluebird sings
A7 On the big rock candy D mountain

 

1. On a summer day In the month of May
A burly bum came hiking Down a shady lane
Through the sugar cane He was looking for his liking
As he roamed along He sang a song
Of the land of milk and honey Where a bum can stay
For many a day And he won’t need any money
Oh the buzzin’ of the bees In the cigarette trees
Near the soda water fountain At the lemonade springs
Where the bluebird sings
On the big rock candy mountain

2. There’s a lake of gin We can both jump in
And the handouts grow on bushes
In the new-mown hay We can sleep all day
And the bars all have free lunches
Where the mail train stops And there ain’t no cops
And the folks are tender-hearted
Where you never change your socks
And you never throw rocks
And your hair is never parted
Oh the buzzin’ of the bees In the cigarette trees
Near the soda water fountain At the lemonade springs
Where the bluebird sings On the big rock candy mountain

3. Oh, a farmer and his son, They were on the run
To the hay field they were bounding
Said the bum to the son, Why don’t you come
To that big rock candy mountain?”
So the very next day They hiked away,
The mileposts they were counting
But they never arrived At the lemonade tide
On the big rock candy mountain
Oh the buzzin’ of the bees In the cigarette trees
Near the soda water fountain At the lemonade springs
Where the bluebird sings
On the big rock candy mountain
