1.Girl of the North Country

G          Bm       C                     G
 If you're travelin' in the north country fair,
G                    Bm   C             G
 Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
G        Bm    C             G
Remember me to one who lives there.
G        Bm  C               G
She once was  a true love of mine.

Well, if you go when the snowflakes storm,
When the rivers freeze and summer ends,
Please see if she's wearing a coat so warm,
To keep her from the howlin' winds.

Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
If it rolls and flows all down her breast.
Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
That's the way I remember her best.

I'm a-wonderin' if she remembers me at all.
Many times I've often prayed
In the darkness of my night,
In the brightness of my day.

So if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

E

"Is it rollin', Bob?"

[n.C.]           E
To be alone with you
             A
Just you and me
                      E
Now won't you tell me true
                             B
Ain't that the way it oughta be?
                   E
To hold each other tight
                A
the whole night through
                     E
Ev'rything is always right
B                    E    [turnaround]
 When I'm alone with you.

To be alone with you
At the close of the day
With only you in view
While evening slips away
It only goes to show
That while life's pleasures be few
The only one I know
Is when I'm alone with you.
              A
They say that nighttime is the right time
   E
To be with the one you love
    F#
Too many thoughts get in the way in the day
           B      [n.C.]
But you're always what I'm thinkin' of
I wish the night was here
Bringin' me all of your charms
When only you are near
To hold me in your arms.
I'll always thank the Lord
When my working day's through
I get my sweet reward
To be alone with you.

4.I Threw It All Away

Intro:

  A       Dm        C   Em  F

|-----------------|-----------------|
|-----------------|-----------------|
|-----------------|-----------------|
|-----------------|-----------------|
C      Am      F      C
I once held her in my arms,
C                 Am     F    G
She said she would always stay.
A         Dm
But I was cruel,
  C           Em     F
I treated her like a fool,
C  F               C      F
    I threw it all away.

Once I had mountains in the palm of my hand,
And rivers that ran through ev'ry day.
I must have been mad,
I never knew what I had,
Until I threw it all away.
F                 G      C                   Am
Love is all there is, it makes the world go 'round,
F             G                   A
Love and only love, it can't be denied.
F                  G
No matter what you think about it
C                  Em      Am
 You just won't be able to do without it.
Bb                        F  G
Take a tip from one who's tried.
So if you find someone that gives you all of her love,
Take it to your heart, don't let it stray,
For one thing that's certain,
You will surely be a-hurtin',
If you throw it all away
C      G             C
If you throw it all away.

C
One more night, the stars are in sight
                   F        G      C
But tonight I'm as lonesome as can be.
        F       G       C
Oh, the moon is shinin' bright,
         F    G        G7
Lighting ev'rything in sight,
    C          F          G        C
But tonight no light will shine on me.

Oh, it's shameful and it's sad, I lost the only pal I had,
I just could not be what she wanted me to be.
I will turn my head up high
To that dark and rolling sky,
For tonight no light will shine on me.
G           F            C                     Dm
I was so mistaken when I thought that she'd be true,
C        Em          F                   G
I had no idea what a woman in love would do!
One more night, I will wait for the light
While the wind blows high above the tree.
Oh, I miss my darling so, I didn't mean to see her go,
But tonight no light will shine on me.
[instrumental break]
One more night, the moon is shinin' bright
And the wind blows high above the tree.
Oh, I miss that woman so,
I didn't mean to see her go,
But tonight no light will shine on me.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
8.Tell Me That It Isn't True

Capo 3rd fret (sounding key F major)

The G/b in the last line of the verses does contain a Bm somewhere (which actually turns
into a Gmaj7 of some sort)

    D                 Dsus4
    :   .   .   .     .   .   .   .

D            A      Em       D
I have heard rumors all over town,
D                     A       Em         D
 They say that you're planning to put me down.
G           F#m          A
 All I would like you to do,
G/B                 Em    D
 Is tell me that it isn't true.

They say that you've been seen with some other man,
That he's tall, dark and handsome, and you're holding his hand.
Darlin', I'm a-countin' on you,
Tell me that it isn't true.
G                 F#m          Em          D
To know that some other man is holdin' you tight,
F#              Bm       Em           F#m    Em
It hurts me all over, it doesn't seem right.
All of those awful things that I have heard,
I don't want to believe them, all I want is your word.
So darlin', you better come through,
Tell me that it isn't true.
[instrumental break]
All of these awful things that I have heard,
I don't want to believe them, all I want is your word.
So darlin', I'm countin' on you,
Tell me that it isn't true.

F#   Bm   Em   F#m

[three suggestions for the ending:]
  D/G     G6               D           D       G6                D

9.Country Pie

The Bm is usually mixed with a B7 (which means you can pick whichever you want of the two)

A    /C#      D
Just like old Saxophone Joe
F#m                        Bm
When he's got the hogshead up on his toe
A  /C#    F#7
Oh me, oh my
Bm        E       A
Love that country pie

Listen to the fiddler play
When he's playin' 'til the break of day
Oh me, oh my
Love that country pie
C#7
Raspberry, strawberry, lemon and lime
F#
  What do I care?
Bm
Blueberry, apple, cherry, pumpkin and plum
E
Call me for dinner, honey, I'll be there
Saddle me up my big white goose
Tie me on 'er and turn her loose
Oh me, oh my
Love that country pie
I don't need much and that ain't no lie
Ain't runnin' any race
Give to me my country pie
I won't throw it up in anybody's face
Shake me up that old peach tree
Little Jack Horner's got nothin' on me
Oh me, oh my
Love that country pie
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
10.Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You

G        C              G
Throw my ticket out the window,
G        C                   G
Throw my suitcase out there, too,
         C        G/B     C
Throw my troubles out the door,
        C         G/B Am
I don't need them any more
       G               C                 G
'Cause tonight I'll be staying here with you.

I should have left this town this morning
But it was more than I could do.
Oh, your love comes on so strong
And I've waited all day long
For tonight when I'll be staying here with you.
Cm                   G
Is it really any wonder
Cm                               G
The love that a stranger might receive.
Ab                             C
You cast your spell and I went under,
Am                        D      C  Bm  Am
I find it so difficult to leave.
I can hear that whistle blowin',
I see that stationmaster, too,
If there's a poor boy on the street,
Then let him have my seat
'Cause tonight I'll be staying here with you.
[instrumental break]
Throw my ticket out the window,
Throw my suitcase out there, too,
Throw my troubles out the door,
I don't need them any more
'Cause tonight I'll be staying here with you.
