Steam Powered Aereoplane
John Hartford

Standard G tuning on Banjo, No Capo.
Good luck with the picking!


     G                                                   Am
Well I dream't I went away on a steam powered aereoplane
     Am                                         C   
I went and I stayed and I damn near didn't come back again.
     G                                       Am
I didn't go very fast on a steam powered aereoplane
     Am                              C   
Oh the wheel went around and up and down and inside and then back again


     Am                              G
Sitting in a 747 just watching those clouds roll by.
     Am                             G
Can't tell if it's sunshine or if it's rain.
     Am                             G 
I'd rather be sitting in a deck chair high up over Kansas City
     Am                                    D
On a genuine old fashioned authentic steam powered aereoplane!

Intro (solo section)

(Verse 2) Chords are the same
Well I'd like to be pilot on a steam powered aereoplane

Well I'd pull that pilot wheel around and then back again.

And i wear a blue hat (Yeah!) that says steam powered aereoplane

The letters up around the brim and then back again.


Enjoy folks!
