J.P. Cormier - House Of Plywood



INTRO: Am 

                            G      C
With just one step upon the lonely road
             F       C
And you were on your way
   Am                              C
An ancient heart that bore a heavy load
         G                   C                F              Am
You were just thirteen and became a man and a vagabond, they say


                        G         C
A minstrel and a beggar you would be
       F           C
Roving through the land
    Am                           C
You wrote about each special memory
        G               C               F                 Am
And the stories of this country came to life beneath your hand


CHORUS:
        G                                  C
And you built this house of plywood with a boot-heel and a pen
  G                                     C
A line of ink that stretches across the country and back again
            F                                                 Am
Through the sawdust and the spotlight your words still linger on____
     G                                                  C     Am
Last night I dreamed that Canada was a song by Stompin' Tom


                          G       C
The people and the places in your songs
            F      C
Became your battle cry
Am                               C
Live or die, weathered, right or wrong
    G                 C              F                   Am
You raised the flag before us and we saw it through your life


                             G         C
Some men stumble beneath the weight of fame
         F          C
But your steps were true
    Am                                    C
You changed the rules so we could win the game
        G            C                F                Am
And you held us all above you right until the song was through


CHORUS:
        G                                  C
And you built this house of plywood with a boot-heel and a pen
  G                                     C
A line of ink that stretches across the country and back again
            F                                                 Am
Through the sawdust and the spotlight your words still linger on____
     G                                                  C      Am
Last night I dreamed that Canada was a song by Stompin' Tom


                         G        C
It takes a mighty man to bear his height
       F                C
And [admitting] numbers not
Am                              C
Someone that is no one from the start
     G               C              F                     Am
That sometimes being nothing is the best thing that we've got


CHORUS:
        G                                  C
And you built this house of plywood with a boot-heel and a pen
  G                                 C
A line of ink that stretches to the sunrise without end
            F                                                 Am
Through the sawdust and the spotlight your words still linger on____
     G                                                  C  
Last night I dreamed that Canada was a song by Stompin' Tom
     G                                                  C   
Last night I dreamed this nation was a song by Stompin' Tom
G                                         Am
We're all just a song, a song by Stompin' Tom


OUTRO: Am       (## fade to end ##)
