J.P. Cormier - Highland Dream


## NOTE: INTRO begins where the guitar comes in after the Fiddle bit ##


CAPO: 2nd Fret



INTRO: C  F  C  G  (2x)

  C                        F       C
I work on the railroad, my name is Peyton
                           F C
I come from the East, far away
          F                           Am7     
Where the Cape Breton hills touch the starlit waters
   G                   C      G
My home peaceful there lays


  C                        F        C
I came to the West for the work was plenty
                       F C
Building the steel highway
     F                      Am7     
So I left all I own and the lass who loved me
G                       C    F  C
Vowing to come home one day


CHORUS:
                  G               C
And last night we walked o'er the mountains
               G                   C
Through sunset fields touched with gold
            Am             Em
And all the birds sang her name
               F     Csus4 G          C     F  C  G  C  F  C  G
In my highland dream I was once again home


           C                      F          C
'Neath the hot prairie sun I will swing this hammer
                       F C
One dollar, one mile a day
        F                           Am7     
And I'd lay the rails down from the Rockies to Mabou
  G                      C      G
Myself, to see my love's face


        C                     F         C
Oh, the iron road runs to the East like silver
                              F C
Polished by our own sweat and tears
    F                       Am7     
And many are those who have worked 'til they've fallen
     G                          C          F  C
They came with their dreams and died here


CHORUS:
                  G               C
But last night we walked o'er the mountains
               G                   C
Through sunset fields touched with gold
            Am             Em
And all the birds sang her name
               F     Csus4 G          C     F  C  G  C  F  C  G
In my highland dream I was once again home


        C                     F           C
Oh, the winter is nigh and my strength is waning
                          F C
The fever has reddened my brow
      F                        Am7     
But a full skin of gold I have earned with my labour
G                    C          G
Just a few days from home now


        C                        F          C
Oh, the black midnight holds the promise of morning
                           F C
But the sunrise I'll never see
      F                          Am7     
Lord, take my soul back o'er the mountains of Mabou
   G                     C   F  C
To see if she waited for me


CHORUS:
                  G               C
For last night we walked o'er the mountains
               G                   C
Through sunset fields touched with gold
            Am             Em
And all the birds sang her name
               F     Csus4 G          C     F  C 
In my highland dream I was once again home
                  Am                       Em
And just like the birds, my soul sings her name
               F     Csus4  G       C    
In my highland dream I have made it home
