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


[Verse 1]
C                 G
Westward from the Davis Strait,
      D                  Em
'Tis  there was said to  lie,
     C                 G
The  sea route to the  Orient,
     Am               C
For  which so many  died,
C                 G
Seeking gold and  glory,
         D                 Em
Leaving  weathered broken  bones, and
   C               G      D         Em       
A  long forgotten  lonely cairn of  stones. 


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


[Verse 2]
      C                 G
Three centuries there - after,
       D            Em
I take passage over land,
       C                  G
In the footsteps of brave Kelso,
          Am                  C
Where his "sea of flowers" be-gan.
         C             G
Watching cities rise before me,
          D               Em
Then be - hind me sink a -gain,
     C             G
This tardiest ex - plorer,
         D                   Em
Driving  hard, a - cross the plains. 


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



[Verse 3]
    C                      G
And through the night be - hind the wheel,
    D                Em
The / mileage clicking west,
  C                G
I think upon Mac - kenzie,
      Am                C
David Thompson, and the rest,
    C                    G
Who cracked the mountain ramparts, and
    D               Em
Did show a path for me,
   C                G       D      G     
To race the roaring / Fraser, to the sea.  


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



[Verse 4]
    C            G
How then am I so different,
         D                      Em
From the first men through this way,
     C              G
Like them, I left a settled life,
  Am               C
I threw it all a - way,
   C                G
To seek a Northwest Passage,
       D            Em
At the call of many men,
   C                   G         D        Em     
To find there, but the road back home a - gain. 


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