AN AMERICAN DRAFT DODGER IN THUNDER BAY  Sam Roberts       tabbed by AVH
Bmin
He was born in a small town 
D                       Bmin      Bmin
And he was given every reason to stay 
Bmin                       D                 Bmin    Bmin
Hallelujah, Mississippi, postcard living no sign of decay 
Bmin                                 D            Bmin    Bmin
Till Vietnam moved next door, then Hallelujah was off to war 
Bmin
In the dream he couldn't finish the deed
           D                Bmin  Bmin
He didn't smoke any weed so why leave? 

Bmin           Dmin      E
Going where I can't be found 
      Bmin      Dmin     E
And I won't be coming 'round 

Bmin
His father Tom said you better sign on 
             D                     Bmin, Bmin
You'd better take up your gun and fight 
Bmin 
I got nothing against them Viet Cong 
D                              Bmin   Bmin
What did they do wrong and why am I right? 

Bmin
He's on his way to Thunder Bay 
            D               Bmin, Bmin
Crossed the border late at night 
Bmin
And it was high stakes until he saw the Great Lakes 
        D                  Bmin, Bmin
And he felt the cold wind bite 

Bmin          Dmin       E
Going where I can't be found
Bmin          Dmin       E
And I won't be coming 'round 
            Bmin
No, I'm an American on the Canadian Shield 
         Bflat                      G       E
And I'm putting down roots in your frozen fields
 Bmin                                       Bflat
It gets cold but you feel so good to be a stranger in a town and you're 
G      E
understood 
Bmin
Missing his home, he would wake up in a cold sweat 
Bmin                                            D       Bmin, Bmin
And pick up the phone and hope that Tom found a way to forget 
Bmin          
He's been teaching at the high school, learning the game 
    D                         Bmin, Bmin
In Thunder Bay we're all the same 
Bmin       
He's one of us, he has our trust 
            D                       Bmin     Bmin
But there's no going back once the line is crossed 

Bmin
I'm an American on the Canadian Shield 
          Bflat                      G      E
And I'm putting down roots in your frozen fields 
Bmin                                         Bflat
It gets cold but you feel so good to be a stranger in a town and you're 
G      E
understood 
Bmin
You can't ask what you're asking me to do 
       G                       G    E
And I hope you understand when I refuse 
Bmin
I'm going North with my point of view 
         G                     G      E
And I'm never gonna think the same as you 
Bmin                       G     G      E
And I'm where I can't be found 
Bmin                      G        G      E
And I won't be coming 'round 
Dmim
No, I'm an American on the Canadian Shield 
         Bflat                      G       E
And I'm putting down roots in your frozen fields 
        Bmin                                Bflat
It gets cold but you feel so good to be a stranger in a town and you're 
G      E
understood
