Chorus:
        / C        / F
Ah, for / just one / time,
        / F                  / Am
I would / take the Northwest / Passage
   /  F               / C
To / find the hand of / Franklin,
         / Dm               / F
Reaching / for the Beaufort / Sea.
        / C        / F
Tracing / one warm / line,
          / F                / Am
Through a / land so wide and / savage, and
G                / D   -    A      /  D   / /
Make a Northwest / Passage, to the / sea. / /

C                 / F
Westward from the / Davis Strait,
     / F                 / Am
'Tis / there was said to / lie,
    / F                / C
The / sea route to the / Orient,
    / F             /  Dm
For / which so many / died,
C                / F
Seeking gold and / glory,
        / F                / Am
Leaving / weathered broken / bones, and
  / G              / D  -   A        / D       / /
A / long forgotten / lonely cairn of / stones. / /

Chorus:

      / C                 / F
Three / centuries there - / after,
       / F            / Am
I take / passage over / land,
       / F                  / C
In the / footsteps of brave / Kelso,
          / Dm                    / F
Where his / "sea of flowers" be - / gan.
        /  C                / F
Watching / cities rise be - / fore me,
          / F                / Am
Then be - / hind me sink a - / gain,
     / F             / C
This / tardiest ex - / plorer,
        / C     -   F         / C
Driving / hard, a - cross the / plains. / /

Chorus:

    / C                      / F
And / through the night be - / hind the wheel,
    / F                / Am
The / mileage clicking / west,
  / F                / C
I / think upon Mac - / kenzie,
      / Dm                / F
David / Thompson, and the / rest,
    / C                    / F
Who / cracked the mountain / ramparts, and
    / F               / Am
Did / show a path for / me,
   / G                / D   -   A      / D     / /
To / race the roaring / Fraser, to the / sea.  / /

Chorus:

    / C            / F
How / then am I so / different,
         / F                      / Am
From the / first men through this / way,
     / F              / C
Like / them, I left a / settled life,
  / Dm               / F
I / threw it all a - / way,
   / C                / F
To / seek a Northwest / Passage,
       / F            / Am
At the / call of many / men,
   / G                   / D   -     A        / D     / /
To / find there, but the / road back home a - / gain. / /

Chorus:
