B.C. Orienteering  Said the Whale

This is my first tab so there may be a few mistakes around the end.
[A]You're taken by the woods even though you're aware of the
[F]Slippery cliffs and the big black bears and the
[C]Salal snares taller than yourself
[E]Ferns growing as thick as the trees
[F]You're looking for a flag at the top of the hill
[E]It's a race against the light
[Bb/Bb]And one false step could mean staying the ni[F]ght
[E]That's why you should never travel alone
[F]You should never you should n[G]ever travel alo[C]ne
[E]And you know that o[F]ne false step and you [G]might not make it h[C]ome.
[A]And so you watch for the loose rocks under your feet
[F]Stepping over loose stones crossing over creeks
[C]Climbing up cliffs, over dead tress
[E]You watch your step you get your footin[F]g riiiiggghhhttt yeah
[Bb]And a broken compass could mean staying th[F]e night yeah
[E]And that's why you should always know where you're going
[F]And even if you've got a map you should alw[G]ays know where you're [C]going
[E]And you know that because even[F] if you've got a map [G]you might not make it home[C]
(guitar riff)
[A]And you take your time just to breathe the air
[F]And appreciate having never met a bear
[C]And you capture the flag at the top of the hill
[E]with daylight to spare
[F]Orienteering comes naturally
[E]You read the map right
[Bb]One wrong turn could mean staying the [F]night yeah
[E]and though you carry your fall
You should [F]never, You should [G]never travel al[C]one
[E]And you know that
Because [F]one false step and [G]you might not make i[C]t home
[E]And you know that
'caus[F]e even if you got a map
[G]you know where you're go[C]ing
[E]You're still a long way from your home
A[C]nd Even if you've got a [F]map you should nev[G]er travel alo[C]ne
And you[E] know that but you'r[F]e not dead yet and
you [G]might just make it hom[C]e
[E]And you know that but [F]you're not dead yet
and [G]you might just make[C] it home
guitar riff till the end
