Winnipeg

Tom Russell

 C
 How's the weather in Winnipeg?
 C
 The broke down nags with the bandaged legs
 CDm
 At Assinaboa Downs
 Dm
 The night we painted the town
 DmC
 A dark, dark blue
 C
 Stolen thunder in Thunder Bay
 C
 Woke up knowin' that we came the wrong way
 CDm
 So we turned it all around
 Dm
 To the cold hard sound
 DmC
 The turnin' of the gears
 CDm
 To the blood hard sound
 DmC
 The turnin' of the years

Chorus:

 FGCF
 I was thinkin' of you last night
 FGCF
 North of the border and the Northern Lights
 FGCF
 One horse town with the Indian name
 EmAm
And all the gentle words, I could never say
 FGCFCF
Love shines in the night, in the morning its gone away         

 C
 Cup of coffee in old Moose Jaw
 C
 Used to be the hideout of a bad outlaw
 CDm
 Named Al Capone
 Dm
 His fedora on
 DmC
 Walkin' through the snow
 C
 We headed west, then it all broke up
 C
 Skull-Smashed-In-Buffalo-Jump
 Dm
 Rockin' and a reelin'
 Dm
 That old buffalo feelin'
 DmC
 Of fallin' through the air
 CDm
 And never really knowin' how the hell
 DmC
 We ended up there

Repeat Chorus

 C
 How's the weather in Winnipeg?
 C
 When the ice melts
 C
 On the first of May
 CDm
 On those desolate streets
 Dm
 One old Sikh
 DmC
 In  a powder blue cab
 CDm
 Is there an Indian name
 DmC
 For the love and the trouble we've had...?

Repeat Chorus
