Bear Creek chords - Carter Family




Carter Family ....Bear Creek

Intro D G A D

(D) Way up on Bear Creek,
Watching the sun go down.
Way up on (G) Bear Creek,
Watching the sun go (D) down.
Well it (A) makes me feel like
I'm on my last go (D) 'round.

(D) The water up on Bear Creek,
Tastes like cherry wine.
The (G) water up on Bear Creek,
Tastes like cherry (D) wine.
One (A) drink of that water,
You stay drunk all the (D) time.

(D) If you stay up on Bear Creek,
You'll get like Jesse James.
If you (G) stay up on Bear Creek,
You'll get like Jesse (D) James.
You'll (A) take two pistols,
And you'll rob that Bear Creek (D) train.

(D) I'm going high, high,
Up on some lonesome ridge.
I'm (G) going high, high,
Up on some lonesome (D) ridge.
Look (A) down on Bear Creek,
Where my good gal used to (D) live.

Repeat 1st verse.
