Cho...	Big Joe Mufferaw paddled up the Madawa  
	A                           E  
	All the way from Ottawa in just one day 
                 A                        D 
	Hey hey, on the river Ottawa the best man we ever saw 
            A                    E          A 
	Was big Joe Mufferaw the old folks say 
                                                 E          A  
	Come and listen & I'll tell you what the old folks say 
 
 
A                            D 
Well they say big Joe had an old pet frog 
A                         E 
Bigger than a horse & he barked like a dog 
        A                           D  
And the only thing quicker than a train upon a track 
    E                       D           A 
Was Big Joe ridin' on that bull frog's back 
E         A               D                      E                      A 
Heave hi heave hi ho the best man in Ottawa was Mufferaw Joe, Mufferaw Joe 
 
 
Well they say Big Joe used to get real wet 
From cuttin down timber & working up a sweat 
And everyone'll tell ya 'round Carleton Place 
The Mississippi dripped off of Big Joe's face 
Heave hi heave hi ho the best man in Ottawa was Mufferaw Joe, Mufferaw Joe 
 
Now Joe had to portage from Gatineau down 
To see a little girl he had in Kemptville town 
Well he was back & forth so many times to see that gal 
That the path he wore became the Rideau Canal 
Heave hi heave hi ho the best man in Ottawa was Mufferaw Joe, Mufferaw Joe 
 
 
Cho... 
 
 
Well they say Big Joe put out a forest fire 
Half way between Renfrew & old Arnprior 
He was fifty miles away down around Smith Falls 
When he drownded out the fire with five spitballs 
Heave hi heave hi ho the best man in Ottawa was Mufferaw Joe, Mufferaw Joe 
 
Well he jumped into Calagogie Lake real fast 
And he swam both ways to catch a cross eyed bass 
But he threw it on the ground & said I can't eat that 
And then he covered it over with Mount St. Pat 
Heave hi heave hi ho the best man in Ottawa was Mufferaw Joe, Mufferaw Joe 
 
Well they say Big Joe drank a bucket of Gin 
Then he beat the living tar out of 29 men 
And high on the ceiling of the Pembroke pub 
There's 29 bootmarks & they're signed with love 
Heave hi heave hi ho the best man in Ottawa was Mufferaw Joe, Mufferaw Joe 
 
 
Cho...
