Capo 2 

[Intro] 
Em   Em   C    D   Em  x2

[Verse 1]
Em                        C     D
Well, I go by the name of Henri LeBlanc
Em                 Bm
And trapping is my trade.
        Em                      C           D
Now, my daddy was French and my momma was a squaw;
      Em              D    Em
I was born in the hem-lock shade.

[Chorus]
C                       Am 
Forty-four years in the northern woods
     G                  Bm
From Quebec to Hudson’s Bay,
Em                      C        D
Forty-four years in the northern woods
          Em               D   Em
Where the bear and the bea-ver stay.

[Verse 2]

Em                          C          D
Well, it ain’t very warm in November’s storms;
Em                     Bm
Still, it’s off to the traps I’ll go 
Em                                C            D
And the whistle of the jay in the trees on the way
           Em               D   Em
Breaks the hush of the fall-ing snow.

[Chorus]
C                               Am 
From my piney log shack with my traps on my back
       G             Bm
To the hills of evergreen,
    Em                       C            D
Em
The music that I know is the north wind’s blow
        Em         D     Em
And the cry of the wolve-rine.

Em  Em  C  D  Em

[Verse 3]
          Em                          C          D
When it’s early in the spring and the high geese sing
        Em                 Bm
Heading up to the northern Grounds,
          Em                          C            D
When it’s early in the spring and the river breaks up
       Em             D   Em  
With a moaning, groan-ing sound

[Chorus]
          C                       Am
Then it’s off on the road with my furs in a load
        G                 Bm
For the ladies around the town.
              Em                   C         D
Well, they’ll look very nice for a very fine price
       Em                 D     Em
And be warm when the wind blows down.


[Bridge]
       G                      D
And my life goes along like a song and a river
        C              D
Flowing down along the way.
            G                            D
Through the months and the years and the smiles and the tears
         C               D
I find a friend in every day.


[Verse 4] (In French)
   Em                C     D
Je suis connu par le nom LeBlanc
   Em             Bm
Et je suis un trappeur.
Em                        C     D
Fils de francais, ma mère était indienne,
   Em               D     Em
Je suis né sous les épinettes.

[Chorus]
   C                         Am
Quarante-quatre ans dans les bois du nord
   G              Bm
De Québec jusqu’à d’Hudson,
   Em                        C       D
Quarante-quatre ans dans les bois du nord
   Em           D     Em
Où se trouve le grand élan.


[Chorus] (Back in English)
C                       Am 
Forty-four years in the northern woods
     G                  Bm
From Quebec to Hudson’s Bay,
Em                      C        D
Forty-four years in the northern woods
          Em               D   Em
Where the bear and the bea-ver stay.

[Outro]
Em  Em  C  D  Em x2
