Lyrics

Steelhead trout, I’m playin' in the sea G-Bm

Great big feeling comes to me C-G

Gotta get on home up the creek today C-G

But hey! What's this! - There's a dam in the way! Am-D7

 

CHORUS:

Gotta get on home! Can't get over! G-D7

Gotta get on home! Can't get under! G-C

Gotta get on home! Can't get around! G-C

We’ll get home when the dam comes down! G-D7-G, D7

(Repeat)

Am-D7-G

Raindrop falling from a cloud up high

Headin’ home to the ocean, but I can’t get by!

Trapped in the mud in a stinky old pool!

There's a dam in way! Hey! That’s not cool!

 

CHORUS

 

If you gotta get home but you can't get back

Then you gotta do something to get on track!

So bye-bye dam! It’s time to go!

Bye-bye dam, ‘cause ev’rybody knows

 

Gotta get on home! Rain’s gotta drain!

Gotta get on home! Where steelhead spawn!

Gotta get on home! It’ll be a new dawn!

We’ll get home when the dam is gone!

 

Gotta get on home! Rain drops and trout!

Gotta get on home! S’what we’re singin’ about!

Gotta get on home! Sing it all together!

We’ll get home when the creek gets better!

 

Gotta get on home! See the light!

Gotta get on home! Gotta do what’s right!

Gotta get on home! It’ll be a new dawn!

We’ll get home when the dam is gone!

 

Gotta get on home! Can't get over!

Gotta get on home! Can't get under!

Gotta get on home! Can't get around!

We’ll get home when the dam comes down!

 

We’re gonna get on, hoooooommmmmeeeeeee! G-D7, C-Bb, G-G-G-F#-G!
