                    OH CANADA
                  MISSY HIGGINS

CAPO: NONE


INTRO: (SPOKEN)
 D#m
More informatiomn has come to light about 3 year old
Syrian boy Alan Kurdi whose body was found recently washed 
up on a beach in Turkey. Refugee advocates now say his
families ultimate goal was to reach asylum in Canada.


VERSE: 
        D#m                         C#  G#
He was carried from the water by a soldier
        D#m                                   C#  G#
And the picture screams a thousand different words
        D#m                              C# G#
He was running from the terror with his father
    D#m                                   C# G#
Who once believed that nothing could be worse


        D#m                                 C# G#
So he’d handed a man two thousand precious dollars
              D#m                          C# G#
The way you’d rest a bird in a lion’s open jaw
        D#m                          C#  G#
And he told the boys that Canada was waiting

                B                     C#
That there was hope upon her golden shores
        B                                     C#
But at night he said a quiet prayer into the wind


CHORUS:

    B  F#              C#     D#m
Oh Canada, if you can hear me now
 F#       B             F#               C#
Won’t you open up your arms towards the sea?
F#  B  F#              C#     D#m
Oh Canada, if you can help me out
 F#         B                 F#          C#  B  F# F# C# D#m B F# C#
All I ever wanted was a safe place for my fam-i-ly


VERSE:
         D#m                                      C# G#
Well the days were long but the nights were even longer
        D#m                                  C# G#
And the baby boys never left their mothers’ side
        D#m                                        C#  G#
But the boat was small and the waves were getting stronger
            B                         C#
And they began to fear they’d not survive

       D#m                                    C# G#
So the father said “We gotta hold each other tighter
        D#m                         C# G#
I’m not losing everything I love tonight
          D#m                                C#  G#
And we’ve come so far I know that out there somewhere
            B                                        C#
There’s a place where we won't have to fear for our lives”
           B                                 F#               C#
But as he held onto the side of the boat he looked up at the sky


CHORUS:
F#  B  F#              C#     D#m
Oh Canada, if you can hear me now
 F#       B             F#              C#
Won’t you open up your arms towards the sea
F#     B  F#              C#     D#m
Oh my Canada, if you can help me out
    F#       B                     F#    C# B  F#  C#  D#m  B  F# C#
The sea is churning I think we’re going doooooooooooooooown


F#  B  F#              C#     D#m
Oh Canada, if you can hear me now
          B             F#          C#
Won’t you open up your arms towards me
    B  F#          C#     D#m
Oh, anyone please help me out
            B                 F#           C#   B  F#  C#  D#m   B  F# C#
All I ever wanted was a safe place for my familyyyyyyyyyyy


OUTRO:
           D#m                         C# G#
There’s a million ways to justify your fear
           D#m                             C# G#
There’s a million ways to measure out your words
        D#m                 F#            C#
But the body of Alan being laid upon the sand
         B
Tell me how do you live with that?
