G  C D 

[Verse 1]

G     C  D            G     C  D
Canada....What’s with Canada...
G                          C                   D
We got great big cities but a lot of trees and rocks
G                             C                  D
And ya the winter’s cold here, wear two pairs of socks
G                                     C              D
There’s half the world’s fresh water, to paddle your canoe
G                           C                  D
Camp along the shoreline, it’s what we like to do...


   G       C   D
In Canada (oooh)
             G      C    D
I’m livin in Canada (oooh)
                 G       C   D
Float my boat in Canada (oooh)
                G        C   D
Bait my hook in Canada  (oooh)

[Verse 2]
G                               C                D
We tend to do things different, we each have our routine
G                       C            D
Some of us eat kubassa, some of us, poutine (Ah, J’aime Poutine)
G                           C              D
But we have traditions, that help us stick together
G                           C                 D
Our milk comes in a bag, and mosquitos eat at leisure.
Em                     Bm
Playing in a snowsuit, the True North strong and free
Am                        D
Hockey Night on Saturday, there on CBC, (or now on Sportsbet)


G            C      D           G                                          C   D 
In Canada.. uuuuhh..Sunrise in Canada (coming to you from coast to coast) (oooh)
D                     G        C
He shoots he scores In Canada (ooooh)
D              G          
I’m a player In Canada


[Verse 3]

G                                   C             D
We pronounce the letter R like we’re pirates on a ship
G                                   C                D
We’ll drive two thousand miles, on a summer camping trip.
G                         C                     D
We wear Sorels in winter, while plugging in the car
G                            C                D
We eat the holes from donuts, we love Nanaimo bars.
Em                       Bm
And we do possess a word that lubricates our speech:
“It’s pretty good, eh” (“It’s pretty good, eh” )
and it’s always within reach..


G          C  D
In Canada (oooh)
               G         C   D
How’s it goin In Canada (oooh)
                G        C   D
Out and about In Canada (oooh)
               G      C    D
Drop your G In Canada (oooh) 
Oh oh oh oh oh…


C                             D                
I’ve slept out in the forest, scared I heard a bear.
C                              D
I’ve climbed a Rocky Mountain, just because it’s there,
C                              D          
Crossed the great St Lawrence, said merci beaucoup,
D             Bm       C             D
Pardon me; I’m sorry; excuse me; after you,


   G       C   D
In Canada (oooh)
            G       C   D
Politely In Canada (oooh)
               G        C   D
Line-up here In Canada (oooh)
You don’t butt, In Canada
C     D
Oh oh oh oh oh…

[Verse 4]

G                     C           D
Every city empties on the 24th of May. (Queen’s Birthday)
G                                  C                 D
If we say “Not bad!”, (“Not bad!”) we’re better than OK, (“Not bad!”)
G                                 C                        D
There’s workman’s comp and pogie, for when we’re shown the door.
G                            C                       D
There’s Canadian Tire money, in at least one kitchen drawer
Em                         Bm
And we have a golden rule that runs between these shores:
Am         (stop)        D         (stop)
You stay out of my face, I’ll stay out of yours…

 G       C   D
In Canada (oooh)
               G       C   D
I get along In Canada (oooh)
                  G       C   D
Kissed the cod In Canada (oooh)
The Friendly Giant’s In Canada
C     Am      (slow)
Oh oh oh oh oh…


D       G         G
Oh oh…. Canada…….
