Ride Forever
composed by Paul Gross and David Keeley
performed by Paul Gross
From the CD "due South: Original Television Soundtrack" (Unforscene Music).

first transcribed to Guitartabs.cc by John Manning

Updated by Russell Reading with pick and new chords.
(using John's words in the hard bits I couldn't get - Thanks to him for them!)

The pick at the beginning goes something like this.
Basically it's the Chord With the top e open, picked with a suitable bass note.

Play the pattern D D, G G D D A G for the 1st verse (or play it as a short intro then strum).

That Pick then....

    C          C        F             F               G

C
Well I was born up north of Great Slave, 1898,
      F
and I rode near all my life on a ranch near Devil's Gate.
         C
And I've seen this world about me bend and flip and change.
                  Gm                        F
Hey it feels like rain -- that's a thundercloud.
     C
Well I've been called a coward, but I've seen two World Wars.
    F
And I lost my son Virgil, a Korean reward.
       C
And my Lucy died last summer. You ask me if I cry,
                    Gm                 F
Hell, I've shed tears: all over this ground,
        F                  G            C
they're falling from these blue Alberta skies.


Chorus:

C                   G
We're gonna ride forever,
Dm                           F
You can't keep horsemen in a cage.
                  C                    Gm
Should the angels call, well it's only then
                     F
We'll pull in the reins.


 C
Now they tell me I'm an old man, they tell me I am blind.
     F
They took my driver's license, this house ain't far behind.
        C
I said "Jump back all you big suits, you got something wrong
               Gm                F
'cause I ain't gone. No I ain't gone."
C
I am still breathing, and I still have my pride.
F
And I have my memories, your life it never dies.
         C
Like the wind that blows in thunder, like the stallion on the fly
         Gm                     F
I got it all, and I'm standing tall
F                Gm           C
Underneath these blue Alberta skies.

[chorus]

C
So I say to all you old men: Don't let yourselves get broke.
       F
If you think the world's gone crazy and it's scratching at your throat
   C
it's time to dust off that old saddle and get it on a horse.
             G                           F
Kick up your spurs: we're gonna run like stink
            F                 G            C
We're gonna tear across these blue Alberta skies.

[chorus]
