First chorus
Intro: [d] ...[a7] ...[d] ... [d7]
Yea! my bucket's got a [g] hole in it
Yea! my bucket's got a [d] hole in it
Yea! my bucket's got a [a7] hole in it
I can't buy no [d] beer.

Well I'm standin' on a [g] corner - with a bucket in my [d] hand
I'm waitin' for a [a7] woman - that ain't got no [d] man.

2nd chorus
'cause my bucket's got a [g] hole in it
Yea! my bucket's got a [d] hole in it
Yea! my bucket's got a [a7] hole in it
I can't buy no [d] beer.

Well, I went upon the [g] mountain - I looked down in the [d] sea
I seen the crabs and the [a7] fishes - doin' the be-bop-[d] bee.

2nd chorus
Well, there ain't no [g] use - of me workin' so [d] hard
When I got a [a7] woman - in the boss man's [d] yard.

2nd chorus
Extra verse.
Well, me and my baby - we just bought a ford
And now we sit together - on the running board.

1st chorus
