 DAsus4
   The war was over and the spirit was broken
 BmCadd9Em7
   The hills were smokin' as the men withdrew
D A/e F#m
We stood on the cliffs, Oh, and watched the ships
 GEm7
   Slowly sinking to their rendezvous
 DAsus4
   They signed a treaty and our homes were taken
 BmCadd9Em7
   Loved ones forsaken, they didn't give a damn
D A/e F#m
Tryin' to raise a family, end up the enemy
 GEm7
   Over what went down on the plains of Abraham

Chorus:
 DGEm7Asus4A
   Acadian driftwood, gypsy tailwind,
 G/bD/aGEm7
   They call my home, the land of snow
 DGEm7Asus4A
   Canadian cold front, movin' in     
 G/bD/aGBmEm7A7D
   What a way to ride, oh what a way to go

Then some returned to the motherland
The high command had them cast away
And some stayed on to finish what they started
They never parted They're just built that way
We had kin livin' south of the border
They're a little older and they've been around
They wrote a letter life is a whole lot better
So pull up your stakes, children and come on down
CHORUS

Fifteen under zero when the day became a threat
My clothes were wet and I was drenched to the bone
Been out ice fishing,mhmm,too much repetition
Make a man wanna leave the only home he's known
Sailing out of the gulf headin' for Saint Pierre
Nothin' to declare; All we had was gone
Broke down along the coast,oh,But what hurt the most
When the people there said "You'd better keep movin' on"
CHORUS

Everlasting summer filled with ill content
This government had us walkin' in chains
This isn't my turf,this ain't my season
Can't think of one good reason to remain
we worked in the sugar fields up from New Orleans
It was ever green up until the floods
You could call it an omen
Points ya where you're goin'
Set my compass north
I got winter in my blood
CHORUS

Coda,en francais to fade:

 DAsus4AG/bEm7
   Sais tu, A-ca-di-e   j'ai le mal du pays
 DAsus4AG/bEm7
   Ta neige, Acadie,    fait des larmes au solei
 DAsus4AG/bEm7D
   J'arrive Acadie,   teedle um, teedle um, teedle ooh
