J.P. Cormier - Kelly's Mountain


CAPO: 3rd Fret



INTRO: G

CHORUS:
                Am   Em
If I could only fly___
                   C  G
If I could build a bridge
                 D
I'd carry you my love
                   Em     G
Across this barren ridge
                        Am   Em
If there were just some way___
                                C G
I'd pull a carriage through the snow
        C            G               D               Em
Take ye over Kelly's Mountain to the village there below
       C         D    G
And no one would ever know


        Em                         G
Oh, the snow was high again in the year of 1910
            C            G                    D
When I rode over Kelly's top from Lake Bras d'Or
         Em                           G
O'er the mountain I had come, without rapier, without gun
   C                 G              D     C      G
To fetch my father's order from the Saint Anne's Store


     Em                              G
As I purchased my supplies, a pretty maiden caught my eye
    C             G               D
Her beauty shone upon me like the sun
      Em                   G
As my heart melted away, I heard somebody say
      C               G            D     C   G     
"That is the daughter fair of Hugh McGow-how-wan"


INTERLUDE: Em  C  D  G


          Em                               G
Well, she knew she'd caught my eye and she smiled as she walked by
        C                G                D
Saying "Meet me when the stars come out tonight.
       Em                       G
On the highroad I will wait, by old Don Campbell's gate
          C              G                 D C G
And we'll sing a song of love there in the moonlight"


CHORUS:
                Am   Em
If I could only fly___
                   C  G
If I could build a bridge
                 D
I'd carry you my love
                   Em     G
Across this barren ridge
                        Am   Em
If there were just some way___
                                C G
I'd pull a carriage through the snow
        C            G               D               Em
Take ye over Kelly's Mountain to the village there below
       C         D    G
And no one would ever know
 

         Em                     G
I knew McGowan was a man with a very heavy hand
        C                G              D
And his daughter was the meaning to his life
        Em                            G
All her suitors, they had come to the wrong end of his gun
   C              G                D  C     G
As long as he was living, she'd be no man's wife


INTERLUDE: Em  C  D  G


      Em                             G
But I met her 'neath the stars and I took her in my arms
        C                     G                 D
And she said, "Please take me with you when you go.
           Em                      G
Beneath my father's cruel hand, no longer I can stand
     C                  G             D    C  G
I'll leave with you and he will never know-ho-ho"


CHORUS:
                Am   Em
If I could only fly___
                   C  G
If I could build a bridge
                 D
I'd carry you my love
                   Em     G
Across this barren ridge
                        Am   Em
If there were just some way___
                                C G
I'd pull a carriage through the snow
        C            G               D               Em
Take ye over Kelly's Mountain to the village there below
       C         D    G
And no one would ever know


INSTRUMENTAL: 


                ** Key Change - 2 Semitones Up **


        F#m                        A
We were halfway up the hill when a gunshot broke the still
      D                  A              E
And I felt the pain burn deep within my side
              F#m                     A
She said, "My God, we have to run, my father has a gun
          D             A               E   D A
And he'll never let you take me as your bri-i-ide!"


      F#m                            A
In my pain I slipped and fell and it wasn't hard to tell
       D               A              E
That McGowan cursed my soul not far behind
             F#m                             A
I pulled her sovereign to my breast, saying "Here I've come to rest,
            D                A               E  D A
But there's something that I wish before I'm dy-i-ing


CHORUS:
                   Bm   F#m
"If you could only fly___
                     D  A
If you could build a bridge
                 E
You carry me, my love
                   F#m    A
Across this barren ridge
                      Bm   F#m
Please tell my father why___
                          D A
You had to bury me in the snow
         D              A                   E             F#m
Near the top of Kelly's Mountain, where the winds forever blow
      D        E    A
Or no one will ever know
         D              A                   E             F#m
Near the top of Kelly's Mountain, where the winds forever blow___
N.C.  D        E    A       F#m  D  A
Or no one will ever know!"
