My mother told me to beware

In case a wolf is lurking there.  Oh...

I must get through the woods.

C                           G
My red riding hood will keep me warm.

My cloak will keep me safe from harm.

C                      G
My mother told me to beware

In case a wolf is lurking there.  Oh...

G                  
Into the woods, away from the wolf,

To grandmother's house I go.

g                                  D          g
Red Riding Hood went into the house.

g                                     c           g
She saw her granny and gave a shout.

                             D7       c
There in bed where her granny lay

    g                                  D7         g
Was the wolf in disguise to her great dismay.

G
Granny what big eyes you have.

c
The better to see you with.

G
Granny what big ears you have.

c
The better to hear you with.

G
Granny what big teeth you have.

c                                g
The better to eat you with!

g                                   D7             g
The wolf jumped out of bed toward Red.

                                        c              g
Red riding hood screamed and yelled for help.

                           c
The wood cutter ran in through the door

g                                  D7      g
And dropped that wolf right to the floor.

           D7            g
In the closet there they found

                    c             g
Granny hidden so safe and sound.

                       c
The wolf is gone so don’t dismay,

      g                                         D7               g
But if you go to the woods, from your path do not stray.
