Gordon Lightfoot - Let It Ride


CAPO: 4th Fret




[INTRO:] F G D   F G D   F G Bb   F G D

[VERSE 1:]
                                  Asus4
These are just the simple facts I will relate to you 
       G/A                              Asus4
Though they are not connected, each and every one is true 
        D                         Asus4
If they seem a bit untidy, well unravelling them is fun 
  G/A                              Asus4
I will not stand corrected, I have not harmed anyone


[CHORUS:]
F      G      D
I just let it ride
F     G      D
Ride, let it ride 
             F       G 
Leave on the evening  tide
F    G      D
Just let it ride


[VERSE 2:]
                             F                 G
When I listen to my heart, I sometimes fail to find 
    D               F             G                 Asus4
One sane and simple answer on the bright side of my mind 
F    G        D           F          G    D
Even when I'm sleeping, I can't seem to unwind 
F      G      D     Asus4
I just let it ride


[VERSE 3:]
                                      Asus4
I knew a man from Windsor who went to Detroit every night 
    G/A                              Asus4
And Stateside of the tunnel, customs agents gave him flight 
   D                                    Asus4
He threw his stash in the river and his bedroll on the ground 
    G/A                                     Asus4
And when they finally got there, a sleeping man was all that they found


[CHORUS:]
F       G      D
He just let it ride
F     G      D
Ride, let it ride 
             F       G 
Leave on the evening  tide
F    G      D
Just let it ride


[VERSE 4:]
                                 F               G
Hear the steeple bells ring out above my lobster pots 
D                   F                 G                   Asus4
I might be out here fishing, man, but that ain't where it stops 
    F        G        D             F         G        D
The mouths I feed are many and they all say, "Thanks a lot"
F         G      D     Asus4
They just let it ride


[VERSE 5:]
                                     Asus4
One day when I'm old and grey and consider what's gone by 
  G/A                           Asus4
I always will be proud of every tear I've ever cried 
    D                             Asus4
And all of the old jokes we told around the candle light
   G/A                              Asus4
To all those tender damsels who had helped us in the night


[CHORUS:]
F         G      D
They just let it ride
F     G      D
Ride, let it ride 
             F       G 
Leave on the evening  tide
F    G      D     F  G  D
Just let it ride
F         G      D     F  G  Bb  F  G  D
I'm gonna let it ride 


[VERSE 6:]
                                        Asus4
Here's to the girls from London and the ones from Montreal 
   G/A                              Asus4
We never will forget them, we still fantasize them all 
  D                          Asus4
I knew one in St. Louis on a Missouri afternoon 
  G/A                         Asus4
I met one up in Shanghai and another in Rangoon


[CHORUS:]
F      G      D
I just let it ride
F     G      D
Ride, let it ride 
             F       G 
Leave on the evening  tide
F    G      D
Just let it ride


[CHORUS:]
F     G     D
Ride, ride, ride
    F     G      D
I'm gonna let it ride 
             F       G 
Leave on the evening  tide
F    G      D
Just let it ride


[OUTRO:]    (## fade to end ##)
          D  Asus4  G/A  Asus4  D  Asus4  G/A  Asus4
