Jack and the Beanstalk        Listen here!

G                                        C       G
Jack sold his cow for some magic beans.

                                     C              D
And told Mom it was the best offer he’d seen.

G                                     C                G
He planted them deep in the ground that night.

C             G                   D7                      G
And early next morning, they gave him such a fright.

G
Up, up, up, up, up they grew

C                G               D7              
As high as the clouds and up on through.

G                              C                    G
Jack started climbing high as could be

C            G       D7                     G
And up at the top a new land he did see.

                              C                         G
Everything was giant, as massive as could be.

                                       C                         D
Jacked walked to a house and knocked so heavily.

G                                            C        G
A giant woman answered and let him in.

C                      G             D7                      G
She held him in her hand and stroked his little chin.

                                 C         G
She fed him breakfast and dinner too.

                                        C                       D
Then she said watch out or my husband will eat you.

G                                                        C        G
He’ll soon be home from work so you better hide.

C               G          D7                 G
Hide in my pocket, you’ll be safe inside.

                          C                          G
Not a minute later, he came through the door

                                 C              D
The giant whose footsteps shook the floor.

G                                      C        G
What do I smell, there’s a man inside.

C       G                 D7                  G
Fee fi fo fum, from me he cannot hide.

                                       C                     G
The giant’s wife replied I don’t know what you mean

                                                     C             D
There has been no man through these doors I’ve seen.

G                                        C              G
Why don’t you go nap and close your eyes.

C                     G              D                        G
I will come and wake you, when it’s time to rise.

                                     C                   G
The giant went to bed and to Jack the wife said,

                                  C                        D
Take these coins of gold to keep your family fed.

G                                               C               G
Please come back and visit me someday again.

C                  G                 D7                    G
Until then remember I will always be your friend.

G                                            C                   G
The next morning Jack up the beanstalk he went

                                     C                 D
And back to the house of the man-eating gent.

G                                                C         G
The giant woman answered and let him in.

C                             G             D7                     G
She held him in her hand and stroked his little chin.

                                  C        G

                         C                           G

                                 C              D
The giant whose footsteps shook the floor.

C           G             D7                  G

                                     C                  G
The giant went to bed and to Jack the wife said,

                                           C                          D
Take this goose that lays golden eggs to keep you fed.

G                                                        C      G
Please come back and visit me someday again.

C                  G                 D7                    G

                                         C          G
The giant’s golden harp gave a loud cry out!

                                        C               D
The giant said I knew I smelled someone about!

G                                              C                            G      
Jack took the giant’s harp and down the beanstalk flew

C                G           D7                            G
He grabbed an axe and chopped the stalk in two.

                      C        G
Jack never saw the giant again

                                          C            D
But thought about the beanstalk now and then.

G                                         C          G
The giant’s wife had been a faithful friend,

C                 G            D                 G
But now our story has come to an end.
