My name is Jim the Carter, a [C] jolly cock am [G] I,
I always am contented be the weather [A] wet or [D] dry.
I [G] snap my fingers at the snow and [C] whistle at the [G] rain,
I've [G] braved the storm for [C] many a day and [G] will do [D] so a-[G]gain.

[G] Crack, crack, goes the whip, I [C] whistle and I [G] sing.
I sits upon my wagon I'm as [A] happy as a [D] king.
My [G] horse is always willing, and [C] I am never [G] sad,
There's [G] none can lead a [C] jollier life than [G] Jim the [D] carter's [G] lad.

[G] The girls all smile at me as [C] we go driving [G] past,
My [G] horse is such a beauty, as he [A] jogs along so [D] fast.
We've [G] travel'd many a weary mile but [C] happy days we've [G] had;
There's [G] nothing near as [C] jolly a sight as [G] Jim the [D] carter's [G] lad.

[G] Crack, crack, goes the whip, I [C] whistle and I [G] sing.
I sits upon my wagon I'm as [A] happy as a [D] king.
My [G] horse is always willing, and [C] I am never [G] sad,
There's [G] none can lead a [C] jollier life than [G] Jim the [D] carter's [G] lad.

[G] My father was a carter, [C] many years a-[G] go;
[G] Off and to the market by the first [A] thing he would [D] go.
Some-[G]times he took me with him par-[C]ticularly in the [G] spring,
I loved to sit u-[C]pon the cart and [G] hear my [D] father [G] sing:

[G] Crack, crack, goes the whip, I [C] whistle and I [G] sing.
I sits upon my wagon I'm as [A] happy as a [D] king.
My [G] horse is always willing, and [C] I am never [G] sad,
There's [G] none can lead a [C] jollier life than [G] Jim the [D] carter's [G] lad.

{sos}
There's [G] none can lead a [C] jollier life than [G] Jim the [D] carter's [G] lad.
{eos}
Well [G] now I see the time has come for [C] me to bid a-[G]dieu
I [G] know my horse will weary if [A] I stay here with [D] you
To [G] see your smiling faces here it [C] makes my heart quite [G] glad
And I hope you'll give your [C] kind applause to [G] Jim the [D] carter's [G] lad.
{c: repeat this last chorus}
[G] Crack, crack, goes the whip, I [C] whistle and I [G] sing.
I sits upon my wagon I'm as [A] happy as a [D] king.
My [G] horse is always willing, and [C] I am never [G] sad,
There's [G] none can lead a [C] jollier life than [G] Jim the [D] carter's [G] lad.

{sos}
There's [G] none can lead a [C] jollier life than [G] Jim the [D] carter's [G] lad.
