Verse:

C            G7 
Did you ever hear of
      C
Sweet Betsy from Pike,
                     Am
Who crossed the wide prairies

With her husband, Ike,
     Am           Em
With two yoke of cattle
    Dm   G7     C
And one spotted hog
                G7
A tall Shanghai rooster
       C
And an old yeller dog?

Chorus:

              G7
Good bye Pike County
     C
farewell for awhile
                   G7  
We will come back again
        C
when we pan out our pile.


The alkali desert
Was burning and bare
And Ike cried in fear,
"We are lost, I declare!
My dear old Pike County,
I'll go back to you."
Said Betsy, "You'll go by yourself,
If you do."


They swam the wide rivers
And crossed the tall peaks
They camped on the prairie
For weeks upon weeks
They fought off the Indians
With musket and ball
And reached California
In spite of it all
