Key: C#
 C                             Am 
We started out from Bern one sunny August morn 
 F                                           C 
there was just the four of us against the Matterhorn. 
  C          Am                       C      
There was Albert the Australian and John the Irishman 
F                         C 
me and Bill from Britian, mad dogs in the sun. 

Am F C Matterhorn, Matterhorn, men have tried men have died to F C F C climb the Matterhorn, that mighty Matterhorn.
C Am Two miles up we lost John and the ration fell below. F C Al and Bill are lying beneath an avelanche of snow. Am C Now here I am alone and I know I cannot stop. F C Two more yards in front of me before I reach the top. (Chorus) C Am Well here I am a dying upon the Matterhorn F C not a thing for me to lie in nor a thing to keep me warm. Am C The Queen would surly kinght me if I could get back down, F C but its closer here to heaven than it is back to the ground.
