D                                    A           D
Have you heard of a ship called that Good Reuben James,
                                     A         D
manned by hard fighting men both for honor and fame?
D                                     G           D
She flew the stars and stripes of the land of the free,
D                                     A             D
but tonight she's in her grave at the bottom of the sea.

   
CHORUS:                                 
D                               G               E
What were their names, tell me, what were their names?
    A                        D
Did you have a friend on the Good Reuben James?
D                               G               E
What were their names, tell me, what were their names?
    A                        D
Did you have a friend on the Good Reuben James?

D                                A         D
It was there in the dark of that uncertain night.
                               A               D
That we waited for U-Boats and waited for that fight.
D                               G               D
Then a whine and a rock and the great explosion roared.
D                                       A          D
And they laid Good Reuben James on that cold ocean floor.


CHORUS:                                 
D                               G               E
What were their names, tell me, what were their names?
    A                        D
Did you have a friend on the Good Reuben James?
D                               G               E
What were their names, tell me, what were their names?
    A                        D
Did you have a friend on the Good Reuben James?

D                                    A          D
Now, tonight there are lights in our country so bright.
D                                   A               D
On the farms and the cities they're tellin' of that fight.
D                                    G                 D
And now our mighty battle ships will sail the bounding main.
D                             A           D
And remember the name of that Good Reuben James.


CHORUS:                                 
D                               G               E
What were their names, tell me, what were their names?
    A                        D
Did you have a friend on the Good Reuben James?
D                               G               E
What were their names, tell me, what were their names?
    A                        D
Did you have a friend on the Good Reuben James?
