I cleared the rocks and timber from the wild New England shore,
  A chord diagramE MajorE                                A chord diagramBB
I labored long and hard to make it grow.
  A chord diagramE MajorE                                A chord diagramA augmentedA            A chord diagramE MajorE
I built the first log cabins and I raised a family,
          A chord diagramE MajorE                  A chord diagramBB                 A chord diagramE MajorE
Told King George and all his Redcoats where to go.
[Chorus]    A chord diagramA augmentedA
    I'm the man that built the bridges.
            A chord diagramE MajorE
    I'm the man that laid the track.
            A chord diagramBB
    I'm the man that built this country
            A chord diagramE MajorE
    With my shoulders and my back.
            A chord diagramA augmentedA
    I'm the man that built the power dams,
        A chord diagramE MajorE
    And oiled all the cars,
        A chord diagramBB
    And I laid down the cornerstone
        A chord diagramE MajorE
    For this great land of ours.

        A chord diagramE MajorE                                  A chord diagramA augmentedA             A chord diagramE MajorE
I'm the boy that drove the wagons when the people headed west,
       A chord diagramE MajorE                                  A chord diagramBB
Dug canals and pulled the barges on their way.
  A chord diagramE MajorE                                    A chord diagramA augmentedA               A chord diagramE MajorE
I built and ran the factories, cut the timber for your homes,
          A chord diagramE MajorE           A chord diagramBB                 A chord diagramE MajorE
Drove the oxen when I cut and baled the hay.

    [Chorus]

  A chord diagramE MajorE                                A chord diagramA augmentedA                  A chord diagramE MajorE
I built the old sod shanties and I raised the prairie towns,
  A chord diagramE MajorE                                 A chord diagramBB
I made the railroad run from sea to sea.
  A chord diagramE MajorE                              A chord diagramA augmentedA              A chord diagramE MajorE
I raised and drove the cattle to feed a growing land,
        A chord diagramE MajorE                A chord diagramBB                A chord diagramE MajorE
And the mining towns are there because of me.

    [Chorus]

I stoked the mighty furnaces and rolled the flamin' steel,
  A chord diagramE MajorE                     A chord diagramBB
I operated oil rigs and wells.
    A chord diagramE MajorE                               A chord diagramA augmentedA                    A chord diagramE MajorE
And when the country needed them, I built the planes and tanks,
   A chord diagramE MajorE                A chord diagramBB              A chord diagramE MajorE
To send the tyrants down to fry in Hell.

    [Chorus]

         A chord diagramE MajorE                             A chord diagramA augmentedA                   A chord diagramE MajorE
Well, my face may not be pretty and my clothes are not the best,
          A chord diagramE MajorE                              A chord diagramBB
And there ain't no bigshots in my family tree,
    A chord diagramE MajorE                                   A chord diagramA augmentedA                 A chord diagramE MajorE
But if you're wonderin' who it was that made this country great,
          A chord diagramE MajorE               A chord diagramBB               A chord diagramE MajorE
You don't have to look no further, it was me.
