Big Sky, MT  Said the Whale

Big Sky, MT by Said the Whale
Tabbed by hattrickbatter (First Tab!)
My[C] grandfather picks wildflowers on top of the hill upon mountainside
And he [G]knows their names by their colour, shape and their [C]size
Up [F]over the ridge and [C]through the valleys picking [E]flowers by the [F]riverside[Fm]
My [C]grandfather he picks shooting star and prairie smoke where lily-of-the-
valley grows. [G]Purslane and Queen Annes beauty, b[C]athing in the oft flow.
Up [F]over the ridge and [C]through the valleys to find [E]early ever lasting in the
[Fm]Oh, for true [C]love. For true [E]love, he said,
F[F]or true love you do the b[C]est that you can.
And [E]she will always be there when [F]you wake up. O[Fm]hh
[F]Up over the ridge and [C]through the valleys
[E]Picking flowers by the river[F----Fm]side
[G]My grandfather was a fisherman and no fish ever stood a chance
When he was [C]standing on the riverbed with a fistful of cutthroat on the sand
[G]My grandfather was a good man and for a good life he gave thanks
Picking [C]flowers for his true love. For Queen Anne on the riverbank

My grandfather taught me there, if you show true love, that you can take
D D* D
care of her and when you wake up, she will always be there by your side.
My [C]grandfather picks wildflowers, on top of the hill upon mountain side.
And he [G]writes the names in the back of his Rocky Mountain [C]Wildflowers Field
Up [F]over the ridge and [C]through the valleys, to find [E]early everlasting in the
[F]light. (Up over the ridge and [C]through the valleys)
Picking [E]flowers by the riverside.[F](Up over the ridge and [C]through the valleys)
To find [E]true love everlasting [F]in the light.[Fm]
Oh, for true [C]love. For true [E]love, he said
F[F]or true love you do e[C]verything you can
And [E]she will always be there when [F]you wake up.[Fm]
[C]My grandfather taught me, that picking flowers is worthwhile
When youre doing it for your true love, and you see her smile.
[C]Its like big skies, shooting stars, and where we are
Where we grows, the roots are never ending light
High up on the mountain (repeat and fade out).
