Winnipeg  Tom Russell



[C]How's the weather in Winnipeg?
[C]The broke down nags with the bandaged legs
[C]At [Dm]Assinaboa Downs
[Dm]The night we painted the town
[Dm]A dark, dark b[C]lue
[C]Stolen thunder in Thunder Bay
[C]Woke up knowin' that we came the wrong way
[C]So we [Dm]turned it all around
[Dm]To the cold hard sound
[Dm]The turnin' of the [C]gears
[C]To the [Dm]blood hard sound
[Dm]The turnin' of the [C]years
[F]I was t[G]hinkin' of [C]you last [F]night
[F]North of the [G]border and the [C]Northern [F]Lights
[F]One horse [G]town with the [C]Indian [F]name
And [Em]all the gentle words, I could [Am]never say
Love [F]shines in the night, in the m[G]orning its gone [C]away[F] [C] [F]
[C]Cup of coffee in old Moose Jaw
[C]Used to be the hideout of a bad outlaw
[C]Named [Dm]Al Capone
[Dm]His fedora on
[Dm]Walkin' through the [C]snow
[C]We headed west, then it all broke up
[Dm]Rockin' and a reelin'
[Dm]That old buffalo feelin'
[Dm]Of fallin' through the [C]air
[C]And [Dm]never really knowin' how the hell
[Dm]We ended up [C]there
Repeat Chorus
[C]How's the weather in Winnipeg?
[C]When the ice melts
[C]On the first of May
[C]On those [Dm]desolate streets
[Dm]One old Sikh
[Dm]In a powder blue [C]cab
[C]Is there an [Dm]Indian name
[Dm]For the love and the trouble we've [C]had...?
Repeat Chorus
>From the album Hurricane Season 1991 Stony Plain Music
