Canadian Pacific:George Hamilton IV.
#1 Canada RPM Country and #25 on BB
Hot Country on RCA Records in 1969.


INTRO: F Bb Gm C
       (Canadian Pacific)

#1.
  F                           C
I rode your ocean liner to Newfoundland, where I 
D                        Am
made a livin' in an iron mine.
       Bb                          C
When I got my fill, I went to Nova Scotia, and I 
D                              C
fished them salty waters for a time.


#2.
        F                                    C
Passing through Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick.
        Dm                                 Am
I could see them rocks and cliffs of solid stone.
          Bb                              C
Listenin' to the seagulls callin' to each other,
                                       F
made me miss my darlin' and my distant home.


CHORUS:
F        Gm       C                       F
Canadian Pacific, carry me three thousand miles,
                            Bb       C      
through the valleys and the forests, to the sunshine 
       F
of her smile.
F                           Gm         C
Cross the plains and rugged mountains, keep this 
                   F
wanderin' boy from harm.
         Bb       C                    F
Canadian Pacific, take me to my baby's arms.


#3.
F                               C           D
The Atlantic disappeared on the horizon and Quebec 
                            C
lay waitin' for me down the track.
      Bb                                 C
For a while I drove a truck to keep from starvin'.
   D         G           C
In Ontario I was a lumberjack.


#4.
    F                          C
Manitoba and Saskatchewan then followed.
          D                                  Am  
Where the wheat fields and the old Red River flows.
       Bb                              C
In the quiet hours your whistle on the prairie,
                                     F
touched my heart and set my memories aglow.


#5.
        Gb                                  Db
I could feel the nearness of her warm, soft kisses,
         Eb                           Db
when you rolled into Alberta westward bound.
         B                          Db
I worked on an oil rig to make some money,
      Ebm           Ab            Db
for a ticket to the sweetest girl around.


#6.
        Gb                             Db
Pushin' on past Lake Louise in all its splendour,
          Ebm                             Db
where the trees and Rockies touch the sky above.
      B                       Db
I got to British Columbia and heaven.
Db                                       Gb
On your tracks I made it back to my true love.



CHORUS:
         Abm      Db                        Gb
Canadian Pacific, carried me three thousand miles,
                            B        Db
through the valleys and the forests, to the sunshine 
       Gb
of her smile.
Gb                          Abm        Db
Cross the plains and rugged mountains, you kept this 
                   Gb
wanderin' boy from harm.
         B        Db                       Gb
Canadian Pacific, you took me to my baby's arms.


OUTRO:
Gb       Abm      Db                        Gb
Canadian Pacific, carried me three thousand miles,
                            B
through the valleys and the forests..(Fade.)




A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
