Ride Forever  Paul Gross

composed by Paul Gross and David Keeley
performed by Paul Gross
From the CD "due South: Original Television Soundtrack" (Unforscene Music).
first transcribed to by John Manning
Updated by Russell Reading with pick and new chords.
(using John's words in the hard bits I couldn't get - Thanks to him for them!)
The pick at the beginning goes something like this.
Basically it's the Chord With the top e open, picked with a suitable bass note.
Play the pattern D D, G G D D A G for the 1st verse (or play it as a short intro then strum).
That Pick then....
[D] [D] [G] [G] [A] 

Note: You can also freely interchanged A and Am when playing this, see what sounds best to your ear..
[D]Well I was born up north of Great Slave, 1898,
and I [G]rode near all my life on a ranch near Devil's Gate.
And I've [D]seen this world about me bend and flip and change.
Hey it feels like [Am]rain -- that's a thundercl[G]oud.
Well [D]I've been called a coward, but I've seen two World Wars.
And [G]I lost my son Virgil, a Korean reward.
And my [D]Lucy died last summer. You ask me if I cry,
Hell, I've shed tear[Am]s: all over this gr[G]ound,
they're [G]falling from these [A]blue Alberta [D]skies.
[D]We're gonna ride for[A]ever,
[Em]You can't keep horsemen in a [G]cage.
Should the angels [D]call, well it's only [Am]then
We'll pull in the rei[G]ns.
N[D]ow they tell me I'm an old man, they tell me I am blind.
They [G]took my driver's license, this house ain't far behind.
I said "[D]Jump back all you big suits, you got something wrong
'cause I ain't [Am]gone. No I ain't g[G]one."
[D]I am still breathing, and I still have my pride.
[G]And I have my memories, your life it never dies.
Like the [D]wind that blows in thunder, like the stallion on the fly
I got it [Am]all, and I'm standing t[G]all
[G]Underneath these [Am]blue Alberta [D]skies.
[D]So I say to all you old men: Don't let yourselves get broke.
If you [G]think the world's gone crazy and it's scratching at your throat
it'[D]s time to dust off that old saddle and get it on a horse.
Kick up your [A]spurs: we're gonna run like [G]stink
We're gonna [G]tear across these [A]blue Alberta [D]skies.
