Fifty Miles of Elbow Room (F.W. McGee) G C Twelve hundred miles, its length and breadth G D7 G That four-square city stands C It's gem-set walls of jasper shine G D7 G They're not made by human hands C G One hundred miles its gates are wide C G Abundant entrance there C G Em With fifty miles of elbow room G D7 G On either side to spare. (Chorus) G When the gates swing wide on the other side C G Just beyond the sunset sea There'll be room to spare as we enter there D7 There'll be room for you and room for me G For the gates are wide on the other side C G Where the fairest flowers bloom C G Em On the right hand and on the left hand G D7 G Fifty miles of elbow room. G Sometimes I'm cramped and I'm crowded here D7 G And I long for elbow room I long to reach for altitude D7 G Where the fairest flowers bloom C G C G It won't be long before I pass into that city fair C G Em With fifty miles of elbow room G D7 G On either side to spare.
