Born in Ontario  Neil Young

Intro: Fool around with variations of the D chord for 4 bars.
[D]You might see me down in Alabama
Or [G]Baton Rouge down in Louisiana
[D]I might make it up to Detroit City
Where [G]people work hard and life is gritty
It d[D]on't really matter where I am
It's [A]what I do, it's what I can
[D]This old world has been good to me
So I [G]try to give back and I want to be free
[D]I was born in Ontario[G]
[D]I was born in Ontario,[G]
[D]Ont[A]ari[G]o, (I was born in)
[D]Ont[A]ari[G]o, (Ontario)
Guitar Solo chords:
[D] [A] [D] [G] [D]  
(chords are the same throughout)
I still like to sing a happy song
Once in a while and things go wrong
I might pick up a pen, scribble on a page
Try to make sense of my inner rage
One cold winter we went down south
With daddy's typewriter for a couple of months
And I was born in Ontario
I was born in Ontario,
Ontario, Ontario, Ontario
(Guitar solo)
I was born in Ontario
Where the black fly bites
And the green grass grows
That's where I learned most of what I know
Cause you don't learn much
When you start to get old
I left home at a tender young age
Cause mom and daddy never liked to stay
In any one place for very long
We just kept moving, moving on
I was born in Ontario
I was born in Ontario,
Ontario, Ontario, Ontario
