Merrimack County-crd  Tom Rush
[D]Way up north by the ice bound ocean
I was [C]born[C/B]    [C/A]    [C/G]I was [D]born
[D]Way up north in the Merrimack county
That's my [C]home [C/B]    [C/A]    [C/G]that's my [D]home[C] [C/B] [C/A] [C/G] [D]
[D]When I was younger and in my schooling
I walked the [C]mountains [C/B]    [C/A]     [C/G]made of [D]stone
[D]The distance sang about tomorrow
And I [C]did[C/B]    [C/A]    [C/G] wish I was grown and [D]gone[C] [C/B] [C/A] [C/G] [D]
[D]Well as I grew indeed I rambled
Out [C]along [C/B]    [C/A]    [C/G]the open [D]road
[D]There I learned the rainbow circle
It's truly [C]said [C/B]that[C/A]'s a [C/G]sign of [D]storm[C] [C/B] [C/A] [C/G] [D]
[D]Now I'm old my dreams they wander
Far [C]away [C/B]in   [C/A]    [C/G]yesterda[D]y
[D]I'm going home to the Merrimack county
And  find the [C]grass [C/B]that  [C/A]    [C/G]hides my gra[D]ve[C] [C/B] [C/A] [C/G] [D]
[D]So let the birds fly down the valley
Let the [C]storms [C/B]roam [C/A]on  [C/G]the [D]sea
[D]I was born to the rainbow circle
Stoney[C] mountain that's [C/B]home [C/A]    [C/G]to   [D]me
