This is off an album Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee did together appropriately called

Won’t have to run through the jungle
And scuff u[(Bb)]p your feet

You’ll just sing about Jesus
And drink wine all day
It’s gonna be great[(Bb)]
To be an American

Ain’t no lions or tigers
Ain’t no mamba snake
Just the sweet watermelon
And the buckwheat cake

Everybody is happy
As a man can be
Climb aboard l[(Bb)]ittle children
Sail away with me

Every man is free
To take care of his home
