CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS (Terry Gilkyson) Guy Mitchell Also recorded by: Terry Gilkyson. (Let me fly, fly, fly stormy water Let me walk on the bottom of the rollin’ sea Let me run, run, run around this great and fertile land ‘Cos this world ain’t big enough for me) Columbus say to the Spanish King “I’ll let you in on a mighty fine thing I aim to prove that the world is round United States ain’t never been found.” (United States ain’t never been found) “Now gimme ships,” old Columbus say “I’ll sail to China the shorter way” The king, he say “This world is flat, Sail too far and where you at?” Let me fly, fly, fly stormy water Let me walk on the bottom of the rollin’ sea (Let me run, run, run around this great and fertile land ‘Cos this world ain’t big enough for me, oh no) The world ain’t big enough for me Now Queen Isabella, she gave heed Said “Go buy the ships you need Take my jewels but travel slow ‘Cos you might fall down to the world below.” (Might fall down to the world below) Crew was a-yellin’ “Turn back home We ain’t ready for the Kingdom Come” Look-out hollered, “Land I see, Why there’s the Statue of Liberty” Let me fly, fly, fly stormy water Let me walk on the bottom of the rollin’ sea Oh, let me run, run, run around this great and fertile land ‘Cos this world ain’t big enough for me (Oh no) The world ain’t big enough for me Now all of the Indians come out then To welcome Chris and the hungry men “Step right up and have a little bite And the Rotary meets on Monday night” (Rotary meets on a Monday night) Columbus sailed right home again Ship load of gold for the Queen of Spain King, he say, a-kickin’ at the ground “Always know’d that the world was round” Let me fly, fly, fly stormy water Let me walk on the bottom of the rollin’ sea (Let me run, run, run around this great and fertile land ‘Cos this world ain’t big enough for me Oh no) The world ain’t big enough for me. The world…. Ain’t big enough…. For me. (Contributed by Bill Huntley - October 2006)
