The Bear  The Tragically Hip

[F#] [E]  
[Verse 1] 
[F#] [E]  
I was first attracted by your sc[F#]ent[E]
Your heart must be a caramelised [F#]onion[E]
By the time I saw your fl[F#]ame[E]
It was all over for you and what's his[F#] nam[E]e
[F#] [E]  
[F#] [E]  
[Verse 2] 
I think it was Algonquin [F#]park[E]
It was so cold and winter [F#]dark[E]
A promised hibernation hig[F#]h[E]
Took me across the great black plate of ic[B]e[A] [B] [A]
Now I'm the isla[F#]nder[E]
[F#] [E]  
[F#] [E]  
[Verse 3] 
I found a place to call my [F#]den[E]
And dreamt of the ferry and the enormous m[F#]an[E]
Huge as were his chil[F#]dren[E]
Following around after him[B] [A] [B] [A]
I'm the isl[F#]ande[E]r
[G]I woke up in the furtive s[A]pring
More capable of any[B]thi[A]ng[B] [A]
[B] [A]  
[B] [A]  
[F#] [E]  
[Verse 4] 
I waited for more men to [F#]come[E]
They docked their boats and cocked their [F#]guns[E]
The time for truth and reconciliation's [F#]gone[E]
But with my belly full I intended to get [B]something [A]done
[B] [A]  
I'm the islan[F#]der[E]
[F#] [E]  
[G]I woke up in the dead of s[A]pring
More hungry than anythin[B]g[A] [B] [A]
[F#]I'm the islan[E]der
[F#]I'm the islan[E]der
F# E F# E F# E (4x)
