1. All the people of today, they are going far away

                  A                   A7                  D

    to the mountains, the lakes, or the sea.

                     D                                    G

    There's a little spot out west that I always loved the best,

                         A                 A7            D

    and there's someone a-waiting for me.

 

                 D

She'll be happy (she'll be happy), she'll be free (she'll be free)

                   A                             D

when she wanders, alone with me.

             D                                       G

It'll be getting quite late, when I meet her at the gate,

                      A                A7            D

and there's someone a-waiting for me.

           G                              D                          A7                  D

Yodel-ay-ee, oh-ah-lee-oh-lay-ee, ah-lee-oh-lay-ee, oh-ah-lay !

2. There's birds in every tree and they sing among the breeze,

                        A           A7          D

    but there's none so happy as me.

               D                             G

    I am going out west and there I'll do my best

          A                A7                        D

    to build a little home for you and me.

3. Oh, the birds that fly above singing dear songs of love

                     A                   A7             D

    o'er the meadows, the valleys so deep,

               D                                     G

    their voices so sweet that they sing me to sleep

               A           A7                      D

    for I know my darling will not weep.

 

 

 

 

 

                 D

She'll be happy (she'll be happy), she'll be free (she'll be free)

                   A                             D

when she wanders, alone with me.

             D                                       G

It'll be getting quite late, when I meet her at the gate,

                     A                 A7            D

and there's someone a-waiting for me.

           G                              D                         A7                  D

Yodel-ay-ee, oh-ah-lee-oh-lay-ee, ah-lee-oh-lay-ee, oh-ah-lay !
