Ride Forever
composed by Paul Gross and David Keeley
performed by Paul Gross
transcribed by John Manning (
[E]Well I was born up north of Great Slave, 1898,
and I [A]rode near all my life on a ranch near Devil's Gate.
And I've [E]seen this world about me bend and flip and change.
Hey it feels like [B]rain -- that's a thunderc[A]loud.
Well [E]I've been called a coward, but I've seen two World Wars.
And [A]I lost my son Virgil, a Korean reward.
And my [E]Lucy died last summer. You ask me if I cry,
Hell, I'll show you [B]tears: they're all over this [Cm]ground,
they're [A]falling from these [B]blue Alberta [E]skies.
[E]We're gonna ride for[B]ever,
[Cm]You can't keep horsemen in a [A]cage.
Should the angels [E]call, well it's only [B]then
We might pull in the [A]reins.
Now they [E]tell me I'm an old man, they tell me I am blind.
They [A]took my driver's license, this house ain't far behind.
I said "[E]Jump back all you big suits, you got something wrong
'cause I ain't [B]gone. No I ain't [A]gone."
[E]I am still breathing, and I still have my pride.
[A]And I have my memories, your life it never dies.
Like the [E]wind that blows in thunder, like the stallion on the fly
I got it [B]all, and I'm standing [Cm]tall
[A]Underneath these [B]blue Alberta [E]skies.
So I [E]say to all you old men: Don't let yourselves get broke.
If you [A]think the world's gone crazy and it's scratching at your throat
it's time to [E]dust off that old saddle and get it on a horse.
Kick up your [B]spurs: we're gonna run like [Cm]stink
We're gonna [A]tear across these [B]blue Alberta [E]skies.
