The other day -The other day-

I met a bear -I met a bear-
            A7
A great big bear -A great big bear-
          D
A way out there -A way out there-
                      G
The other day I met a bear
            A7             D
A great big bear a way out there


         D
And so I ran -And so I ran-

Away from there -Away from there-
            A7
But right behind -But right behind-
            D
Me was that bear -Me was that bear-
                       G
And so I ran away from there
            A7               D
But right behind me was that bear


         D
Ahead of me -Ahead of me-

There was a tree -There was a tree-
            A7
A great big tree -A great big tree-
          D
Oh, glory be -Oh, glory be-
                        G
Ahead of me there was a tree
            A7              D
A great big tree, oh, glory be


            D
The nearest branch -The nearest branch-

Was ten feet up -Was ten feet up-
            A7
I’d have to jump -I’d have to jump-
             D
And trust my luck -And trust my luck-
                                G
The nearest branch was ten feet up
            A7                D
I’d have to jump and trust my luck


         D
And so I jumped -And so I jumped-

Into the air -Into the air-
                  A7
But I missed that branch -But I missed that branch-
         D
A way up there -A way up there-
                         G
And so I jumped into the air
                  A7              D
But I missed that branch a way up there


              D
Now don’t you fret -Now don’t you fret-

Now don’t you frown -Now don’t you frown-
                     A7
‘Cause I caught that branch -‘Cause I caught that branch-
                D
On the way back down -On the way back down-
                                  G
Now don’t you fret, now don’t you frown
                     A7                     D
‘Cause I caught that branch on the way back down


            D
This is the end -This is the end-

There ain’t no more -There ain’t no more-
         A7
Unless I meet -Unless I meet-
               D
That bear once more -That bear once more-
                                G
This is the end, there ain’t no more
         A7                  D
Unless I meet that bear once more
