THE LAST SASKATCHEWAN PIRATE 
Captain Tractor        ACOUSTIC


VERSE 1
C                                      F               G           C
Well I used to be a farmer,            and I made   a living       fine.
F                   C                    G
I had a little    stretch of land      along the CP line.
C                                                    F               G         C
But times went by and though I tried   ,             the money    wasn't    there,
F                      C                       G
and the bankers came   and took my land    and told me fair is fair.


PRECHORUS
Am                                      D
I looked for every kind of job    the answer always no,
Am                                               G
Hire you now they always laughed    we just let 20 go
Am                                                D
The government they promised me    a measly a little sum
Am                                                   G                                               
But I've got too much pride to end up    just another bum,
A                                                  Dm
Then I thought who gives a damn      if all the jobs are gone,
D                                    G
I'm gonna be a pirate, on the    river Saskatchewan


CHORUS
           C       C       F        G        C
And it's a heave   ho    coming    down    the plains
F                       C               G
Stealing wheat    and barley    and all the other grains
           C      C      F            G            C
And it's a ho    hey    farmers    bar your    doors
F               C                   G                     C
When you see    the Jolly Rodger    on Regina's mighty    shores
F  C  G  C
WHISTLING


VERSE 2    (no prechorus)  

C                               F            G       C  
Well you think the local farmers would know that I'm at large
F                      C                      G
But just the other day I found an unprotected barge
C                            F        G          C
I snuck up right behind them and they were none the wiser
F                 C                G
I rammed the ship and sank it and stole the fertilizer.
C                           F       G          C
Bridge outside of Moose Jaw spans the mighty river
F             C                     G
Farmers cross with so much fear their stomach are a-quiver,
C                                       F       G      C
'Cause they know that Captain Tractor's hiding in the bay
F                    C                   G
I'll jump the bridge and knock 'em cold and sail off with their hayyyyy


CHORUS
           C             C       F            G        C
And it's a ho           hi       coming    down    the plains
F                       C               G
Stealing wheat    and barley    and all the other grains
           C      C      F            G        C
And it's a hey    ho    farmers    bar your    doors
F               C                   G                     C
When you see    the Jolly Rodger    on Regina's mighty    shores
F  C  G  C
WHISTLING


VERSE 3   
C                              F      G             C
Well mountie Bob he chased me, he was always at my throat.
F                  C                    G
He followed on the shore lines cause he didn't own a boat.
C                                   F         G        C
But the cutbacks were coming and the mountie lost his job,
F                    C            G                C
So now he's sailing with me and we calls him Salty Bob.
PRECHORUS
Am                                      D
A swinging sword and skull and bones    and pleasant company,
Am                               G
I never pay my income tax and    screw the GST (Screw it!)
Am                            D
Sailing down to Saskatoon     the terror of the sea,
Am                                      G
If you want to reach the co-op boy      you gotta get by me
HA-HAR


CHORUS
             C           C       F            G        C
And it's a   hi          ho      coming    down    the plains
F                 C               G
Stealing wheat    and barley    and all the other grains
           C      C      F            G            C
And it's a hi    hey    farmers    bar your    doors
F               C                   G                     C
When you see    the Jolly Rodger    on Regina's mighty    shores
F  C  G  C
WHISTLING


VERSE 4
C                                F       G                   C
Well the pirate life's appealing but you don't just find it here,
F                       C                 G
I hear in North Alberta there's a band of buccaneers,
C                          F          G      C
They roam the Athabasca from Smith to Fort McKay,
F                C                     G
And you're gonna lose your Stetson if you have to pass their way,
Am                       D
Well winter is a-coming and a chill is in the breeze,
Am                       G
But pirate days are over once the river starts to freeze,
Am                              D
But I'll be back in spring time and now I have to go
Am                                G
I hear there's lots of plundering down in New Mexico,


CHORUS
             C              C       F         G        C
And it's a   heave          ho      coming    down    the plains
F                       C               G
Stealing wheat    and barley    and all the other grains
           C      C      F            G         C
And it's a ho    hey    farmers    bar your    doors
F               C                  G                      C
When you see    the Jolly Rodger    on Regina's mighty    shores

(sing with no music)

(And it's a hi ho coming down the plains
Stealing wheat and barley and all the other grains
And it's a hi hey farmers bar your doors
When you see the Jolly Rodger on Regina's mighty shores)

             C              C       F         G       C
And it's a   heave          ho      coming    down    the plains
F                       C               G
Stealing wheat    and barley    and all the other grains
           C     C      F            G            C
And it's a ho    hey    farmers    bar your    doors
F               C                   G                     C
When you see    the Jolly Rodger    on Regina's mighty    shores
F               C                   G                     C
When you see    the Jolly Rodger    on Regina's mighty    shores
F               C                   G                     C
When you see    the Jolly Rodger    on Regina's mighty    shores
