David Francey - Flowers Of Saskatchewan


CAPO: 4th Fret




INTRO: G  C  G  C  G  C  G  C  G

                           C       G
The sun was shining on the English Channel
     C     G       D        G       C  G
On a ferry off the coast of France
                        C        G
And it was summer and a pleasant morning
    C     G          D           G       C  G
And high above gulls wheeled and danced


          C                      G
And high above the cliffs of morning
                                  C      G  C
The gun emplacements had stood in ranks
             G    C      G
And I walked over to the railing
      C         G             D       G      C  G
And I heard the ghosts of the Calgary Tanks


INSTRUMENTAL: C  G  C   G  C  G  C  G  D  G  C  G  


                 C        G
And I remembered pictures I'd seen
                     D   G      C  G
In history books and magazines
                       C        G
Of three men standing, smoking, staring
 C        G             D     G      C  G
Among the dead men on a rocky beach


           C                          G
And in the light of that pleasant morning
                               C     G  C 
As we sailed under the cliffs above
             G         C      G
I thought of all their silent prayers
        C     G               D         G      C  G
And the final thoughts of the ones they loved


                         C       G
That they left behind at prairie stations
C      G        D         G
Waving to their pride and joy
              C       G
Waving to the smiling faces
C       G            D       G     C  G
Smiling faces on the soldier boys


            C                       G
No waves of grain will claim the fallen
                                  C      G  C
Just the channel cold and grey as steel
         G           C       G
And no return to the rolling prairie
      C      G          D      G    
And a silent cross on a lonely field


INSTRUMENTAL: G  C  G  C  G  D  G  C  G   (2x)
              C  G  C   G  C  G  C  G  D  G  C  G


                               C       G
Oh, the sun was shining on the rolling prairie
    C        G        D        G     C  G
Far from the channel, cold and grey
                       C           G
Shone on the families, friends and lovers
       C       G        D         G    C  G
Of the prairie boys who fell that day


                   C                      G
But they could not know on that sunny morning
                            C    G  C
The future held for them no joy
               G       C       G
They'd wait in vain at prairie stations
C       G              D       G     C  G
Wait in vain for their soldier boys


OUTRO: G  C  G  C  G  D  G
