Six men of Indostan
A chord diagramBb majorBb                 A chord diagramFF
To learning much inclined
A chord diagramBb majorBb              A chord diagramFF
Went to see the Elephant
        A chord diagramC majorC      A chord diagramDmDm        A chord diagramC majorC
(Though all of them were blind)
A chord diagramBb majorBb                A chord diagramC majorC
That each by observation
      A chord diagramBb majorBb          A chord diagramF minorFm    A chord diagramFF
Might satisfy his mind
A chord diagramF minorFm          A chord diagramBbmBbm   A chord diagramF minorFm          A chord diagramBbmBbm

Six men of Indostan, to learning much inclined



Verse One:
x         A chord diagramFF
Well, the First approached the Elephant
A chord diagramEb MajorEb               A chord diagramF minorFm
And happening to fall
A chord diagramEb MajorEb                    A chord diagramFF
Against his broad and sturdy side
   A chord diagramC majorC
At once began to bawl:
A chord diagramDbDb         A chord diagramC majorC
“God bless me! but the Elephant
               A chord diagramF minorFm
Is very like a wall!”



Verse Two:
                    A chord diagramFF
The Second, feeling of the tusk
       A chord diagramBb majorBb                A chord diagramFF
Cried, “Ho! what have we here
A chord diagramBb majorBb                A chord diagramFF          A chord diagramC majorC
So very round and smooth and sharp?
A chord diagramC majorC
To me tis mighty clear
A chord diagramDbDb                A chord diagramC majorC
This wonder of an Elephant
               A chord diagramFF
Is very like a spear!”



Chorus:
A chord diagramFF                A chord diagramF minorFm
All of them were blind
A chord diagramBbmBbm              A chord diagramF minorFm
All of them were blind
A chord diagramBb majorBb  A chord diagramF minorFm     A chord diagramC majorC
Six men of Indostan
   A chord diagramFF             A chord diagramC majorC          A chord diagramF minorFm
To learning much inclined



Verse Three:
    A chord diagramFF
The Third approached the animal
A chord diagramBbmBbm              A chord diagramF minorFm      A chord diagramC minorCm
And happening to take
A chord diagramBb majorBb            A chord diagramFF         A chord diagramC majorC
The squirming trunk within his hands
A chord diagramC majorC
Thus boldly up he spake:
A chord diagramDbDb             A chord diagramC majorC    A chord diagramBB
“I see,” quoth he, “the Elephant
   A chord diagramFF                     A chord diagramC majorC
Is very like a snake!”



Verse Four:
         A chord diagramFF
Then the Fourth reached out an eager hand
A chord diagramBbmBbm               A chord diagramFF     A chord diagramAbAb
And felt about the knee
A chord diagramBbmBbm                      A chord diagramFF
“What most this wondrous beast is like
   A chord diagramC majorC
Is mighty plain,” quoth he;
A chord diagramDbDb                    A chord diagramC majorC
“Tis clear enough the Elephant
               A chord diagramF minorFm
Is very like a tree!”

Verse Five:
        A chord diagramAbAb                    A chord diagramFF
And the Fifth! who chanced to touch the ear
      A chord diagramBbmBbm                A chord diagramF minorFm
Said: ”E’en the blindest man
                   A chord diagramFF
Can tell what this resembles most;
  A chord diagramC majorC                    A chord diagramDbDb
Deny the fact who can,
            A chord diagramC majorC
This marvel of an Elephant
               A chord diagramFF      A chord diagramC majorC
Is very like a fan!”



Verse Six:
A chord diagramC majorC
And the Sixth! no sooner had begun
A chord diagramBbmBbm                A chord diagramF minorFm
About the beast to grope (to grope!)
A chord diagramBbmBbm                  A chord diagramF minorFm
Than, seizing on the swinging tail
A chord diagramC majorC
That fell within his scope (scope!)
A chord diagramDbDb       A chord diagramC majorC
“I see,” quoth he, “the Elephant
        A chord diagramFF      A chord diagramAbAb
Is very like a rope!”



Chorus:
A chord diagramFF                A chord diagramF minorFm
All of them were blind
A chord diagramBbmBbm              A chord diagramF minorFm
All of them were blind
A chord diagramBb majorBb  A chord diagramF minorFm     A chord diagramC majorC
Six men of Indostan
A chord diagramC majorC
Learning much inclined
   A chord diagramFF             A chord diagramC majorC          A chord diagramF minorFm
To learning much inclined


Closing:
    A chord diagramEb MajorEb
And so these men of Indostan
   A chord diagramDbDb             A chord diagramF minorFm
Disputed loud and long
A chord diagramC majorC
Each in his opinion
Exceeding stiff and strong
A chord diagramEb MajorEb
Each was partly in the right
    A chord diagramDbDb              A chord diagramFF
But all were in the wrong


Moral:
   A chord diagramC majorC
So oft in theologic wars,
The disputants, I ween,
Rail on in utter ignorance
Of what each other mean,
    A chord diagramBbmBbm            A chord diagramC majorC
And prate about an Elephant
                    A chord diagramF minorFm
Not one of them has seen!
