F                      Dm
Sweet mother Michigan, father Superior
Bb                            C
Coming down from Mackinaw and Sault St. Marie
F                      Dm
Blue water Huron, flow down to Lake Erie-O
Bb                  C             F   C
Fall to Ontario and run on out to sea


(Verse 1)

    F
The Great Lakes are a diamond 
       Dm
On the hand of North America
  Bb                            C
A brightly shining jewel on the friendship bordering
F                  Dm
Freshwater highway coming down from Canada
Bb                        C                 
All around the coastline, can't you hear them sing?


(CHORUS)

F                      Dm
Sweet mother Michigan, father Superior
Bb                            C
Coming down from Mackinaw and Sault St. Marie

Fall to Ontario and run on out to sea


(Bridge)

Dm                           Bb
Hearty are the seamen on the ships that load the iron ore
Dm                             C
Sailing out of Thunder Bay and bound for Buffalo
Dm
And hearty are the fishermen 
     Bb
Just like their fathers were before
Dm                         C               F
Say they'll bury me at sea come my time to go

(Interlude)

Dm Bb C C
 
(Verse 2)

F                         
Down below the quarterdecks 
    Dm
The old men mend the fishing nets
    Bb
And up above the windy bridge  
    C
The young men curse into the wind
F                                
And up and down the Windsor Straits 
    Dm
The wives and mothers lie awake
    Bb                             C               F    
And pray our lady of the lake Will send them home again
C
Singin'

Coming down from Mackinaw and Sault St. Marie

Blue water Huron, flow down to Lake Erie-O

Fall to Ontario and run on out to sea
