Bill Wurtz

Key: G
Mount St. Helens is about to blow up 
                     C          G 
And it's gonna be a fine, swell day 
                    D/F#            Em9            A7M(9)  D7(4) 
Everything's gonna fall down to the ground and turn grey 
All of my friends, family, and animals  
                      C    G 
Are probably going to run away 
    C Cm          Bm7    Em11             Am7   D7    G   D7(4) 
But me, I'm feeling curious, so I think I just might stay 

The Dow Jones just fell down to zero  
                     C           G 
And it's gonna be a fine, swell day 
      C                    Bm7  Em11            D        D7(4) 
And I wonder if it's gonna be as good a day as yesterday 
All of these business suits that I've just purchased 
                C              G 
Gonna have to throw them all away 
    C     Cm             Bm7        Em11          Am7      D7 
And slip into something more reasonable and then dance the night  

             Fm7   Bb7 
I'm riding a pony 
         Eb7M   Cm7 
Into the sunset 
             Fm7       Bb7 
Everything's green and gold 
              Eb7M   Cm7 
So I'm not in hell yet 
        Fm7                  Bb7(4)          F7M    Dm7 
And the people who work in my office went on vacation 
                                    Bbm7        Bbm7/F    Eb7(4) 
'Cause they say that I haven't been paying them very much anymore 

( D7(4) ) 

Mount St. Helens has a pretty cool gift shop 
              C               G 
And I haven't been there in a while 
          G   D/F#              Fm7        Bb7(4)     D7(4) 
And I've been wondering if it's even still there? 
And the climate has been changing 
              C             G 
And soon it's gonna change more 
          C          Cm     Bm7   Em11       Am7    D7    G 
And we'll figure out all of the details in climate change court 

                  Fm7    Bb7 
Take a ride on my blimp 
             Eb7M     Cm7 
Oh, it's a very strong blimp 
              Fm7          Bb7 
You can watch movies and play games 
While riding on it 
         Am7      Ab7M       Bb7       Am7 
When the sun goes down and the sky burns out 
Gm7         Cm7 
We'll never slow down 
Gm7           Cm7/D# 
Oh, we're not going down 

Bb                          Am7 D7       G 
Mount St. Helens is feeling crazy and adventurous 
           Em7          Am7      D7 
That's the reason that it's so special 
       Am7        D7 
And it takes no answers 
       Am7       D7 
And it gives no questions 
       Am7      D7 
And it makes no excuses 
       Am7            D7 
And it really doesn't listen 
       Am7       D7 
And it seems so eccentric 
       Am7     D7 
And it looks so active 
       Am7         D7 
And it dreams of puppies 
         Am7         D7    
And it's filled with music
