A Little Bit South of Saskatoon  Sonny James

Here's a cool little tune that I first heard in the classic hockey movie "Slapshot". I
included he basic chord structure of the song as well as the full tab with chord
condensed to one guitar part. I have tried to make timing as obvious as possible; all
are eighth notes:
A Little Bit South of Saskatoon
Written by: Sonny James (1975)

Intro: A D G C (same as the rest of the song)
[A]Just a little bit south of [D]Saskatoon
Pick my gui[G]tar for board and r[C]oom
[A]Met a little girl, her name was [D]June
A little bit [G]south of Saska[C]toon
[A]Me and Junny-Mae we got on [D]fine
Till I had to [G]move further down the [C]line
[A]Promised that girl I'd be back [D]soon
A little bit [G]south of Saska[C]toon
[A]Went up to Nome to see the [D]sights
Had a yen to [G]watch the northern [C]lights
[A]But I had my mind on my sweet [D]June
A little bit [G]south of Saska[C]toon
[A]So I caught a freight and headed [D]back
Following [G]down that railroad [C]track
[A]Kept a thinkin' of my honey[D]moon
A little bit [G]south of Saska[C]toon
[A]Me and Junny-Mae got a little [D]house
Got a piece of [G]ground and a few milk [C]cows
[A]We're gonna get a youngin' [D]soon
A little bit [G]south of Saska[C]toon
[A]In the winter time when we can't [D]farm
Me and Junny-[G]Mae sit arm in [C]arm
[A]By a big ole fire and honey[D]moon
A little bit [G]south of Saska[C]toon
