Gather In The Mushrooms
As can be seen this song goes up 1/2 tone after each chorus. I suppose you
could play it without doing this to make it easier?
Try to slide up to each key change eg F# slide to G.

Intro = F#

Verse 1
F#
Lucy went down on a farm tried to milk a cow
                                      C#             F#
Though she tried she couldn't get the hang of it somehow
F#
The farmer looked at Lucy and murmured with a frown
F#                                    C#                 F#
Well you just hang on tightly gal and she'll jump up and down

Chorus
F#
Oh gather in the mushrooms put 'em in a pot
                       C#               F# G     
Pop 'em in the oven an serve 'em piping hot

Verse 2
G
To make herself more beautiful she thought she'd bathe in milk
                                    D              G
She said I'll have a bathful to her milkman Jackie Wilke
G
He said do you want it pasturized before I pour it in
G                               D              G   
She said no I'll be happy if it comes up to my chin

Chorus  
G
Oh gather in the mushrooms put 'em in a pot
                       D                G  G#
Pop 'em in the oven an serve 'em piping hot

Verse 3
G#
The farmer called at Lucy one dark and stormy night
                                  D#                 G#
She said you are too old for me because your hair is white
G#
He looked into her eyes and then he knew he'd have to tell her
G#                                       D#          G#
There's snow upon the roof but there's a fire in the cellar

Chorus
G#
Oh gather in the mushrooms put 'em in a pot
                       D#               G# A
Pop 'em in the oven an serve 'em piping hot

Verse 4
A
She took him in the kitchen she was his turtle dove
                             E                A
And then she started cooking dumplings on the stove
A
She wore a low cut dress oh it was as green as clover
A                                         E                 A
He jumped with glee 'cos he could see her dumplings boiling over

Chorus
A
Oh gather up the mushrooms put 'em in a pot
                       E                A  A#
Pop 'em in the oven an serve 'em piping hot

She said you give me half a crown I will read your palm
                                    F               A#
And then she saw his love line went half way up his arm
A#
So now she's changed her prices although she's just as willing
A#                                    F             A#
It's big fat men at two pound ten and little boys a shilling

Chorus and outro
A#
Oh gather in the mushrooms put 'em in a pot
                        F                A#
Pop 'em in the oven and serve 'em piping hot
A#
We're gonna gather in the mushrooms put 'em in a pot
                        F                  A# A A#
Pop 'em in the oven and serve them pi-ping ho-o-ot
