Swamp Music -- by Lynyrd Skynyrd

I figured out the lyrics and chords very quickly on this.  The basics of 
the song sound simple and can be played effectively with an acoustic.  
The rockin' electric jams are another story however!!  Any corrections or 
flames email me at

Chords: E-A-B7

Goin' down to the swamp, goin ...
	      A							   E
Well I'm goin down to the swamp, goin to ...
	    B7			   A	
Ya know the hound dog makin music, ...
Ohhh, fetch my cane pole mamma, goin ...
      A							    E	
Lord, fetch my cane pole mamma, goin ...
	 B7							E
When the hound dogs start barkin', ...

Swamp, Swamp, Swamp...
Swamp, swamp, swamp...
B7				   A				 E
When the hound dog starts singin', I ain't ...


Go ahead pretty mamma, just take that city ...

chorus, but add this in the last 2 verses instead:

Well, I'd rather live with the hound dogs....
Well I want to live with the hound dogs, ....
