OLearys Cow

Song Author Ray Winkler , Leroy Morris og Dave Stone Performer: Johnny Horton Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]October eighteen seventy one
[F]That's when this great big [C]fire begun
[F]The Windy City was a [C]ball of flame
And [G7]O'Leary's cow was the one to [C]blame


The firemen fought for days on end
[F]They could fight the fire but they couldn't [C]fight the wind
[F]The wind fanned the flames and it [C]started again
And [G7]nobody knew if it ever would [C]end  

[Am]She kicked up her heels with out a hint
[G7]Kicked the lantern over and away she went
[Am]The world couldn't help but be amazed
How one little cow [C]started such a blaze


The rich and the poor were both alike
[F]Fighting and praying for [C]their life
[F]Then at last the Lord [C]looked down
And [G7]he sent a little rain to the windy [C]town

[C]October eighteen seventy one
[F]That's when this great big [C]fire begun
[F]The Windy City was a [C]ball of flame
And [G7]O'Leary's cow was the one to [C]blame

[Am]She kicked up her heels with out a hint
[G7]Kicked the lantern over and away she went
[Am]The world couldn't help but be amazed
How one little cow [C]started such a blaze

The after math was a sight to see
[F]The loss of life and [C]property
[F]The people said it [C]was a shame
But [G7]O'Lear'y's cow still caught the [C]blame

[Am]She kicked up her heels with out a hint
[G7]Kicked the lantern over and away she went
[Am]The world couldn't help but be amazed
How one little cow [C]started such a blaze

October eighteen seventy one
That's when this great big fire begun
The Windy City was a ball of flame
And O'Leary's cow was the one to blame

The firemen fought for days on end
They could fight the fire but they couldn't fight the wind
The wind fanned the flames and it started again
And nobody knew if it ever would end

She kicked up her heels with out a hint
Kicked the lantern over and away she went
The world couldn't help but be amazed
How one little cow started such a blaze

The rich and the poor were both alike
Fighting and praying for their life
Then at last the Lord looked down
And he sent a little rain to the windy town

October eighteen seventy one
That's when this great big fire begun
The Windy City was a ball of flame
And O'Leary's cow was the one to blame

She kicked up her heels with out a hint
Kicked the lantern over and away she went
The world couldn't help but be amazed
How one little cow started such a blaze

The after math was a sight to see
The loss of life and property
The people said it was a shame
But O'Lear'y's cow still caught the blame

She kicked up her heels with out a hint
Kicked the lantern over and away she went
The world couldn't help but be amazed
How one little cow started such a blaze
