Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Add: Blue Water Line (Graf & Seligson)
Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Blue Water Line
I believe that the song was also recorded by The Brothers Four.


The [C]City Council met last night, the [F]vote was four to [C]three
To [C]tear the home town depot down and [G7]build a factory
To [C]take that stretch of history and [F]tear it off the [C]map
And to [C]take old engine number nine and [G7]turn it into [C]scrap

[C]Blue Water, Blue Water, [F]Blue Water [C]Line
[C]Blue Water, Blue Water, [G7]Blue Water Line
If you [C]can't afford a quarter then you [F]ought to give a [C]dime
If [F]everybody gave then [C]we could save the [G7]Blue Water [C]Line

Oh [C]I could tell you stories of the [F]glories of that [C]train
Of the [C]49'er miners and the [G7]time old Jesse James
Stole a [C]thousand golden nuggets in that [F]great train robbe[C]ry
And when old Abe Lincoln rode with [G7]Tad upon his [C]knee


Just [C]twenty thousand nickels and [F]forty thousand [C]dimes
We'll [C]ride again to glory on that [G7]old Blue Water Line
We'll have [C]William Jennings Bryan stokin' [F]coal on number [C]nine
So [C]reach into your pockets boys for the [G7]old Blue Water [C]Line
