VERSE 1

    C                  F   C 
The bear went over the mountain,

    G                  C 
The bear went over the mountain,

                       F 
The bear went over the mountain,

   G                 C 
To see what he could see.

             F        C 
And all that he could see,

             G        C 
And all that he could see,

                          F   C 
Was the other side of the mountain,

    G                 G 
The other side of the mountain,

                      F 
The other side of the mountain,

    G                 C 
Was all that he could see.
