THE PITS

(CHORUS)
         G                  D
It's the 24th of May and we likes to get away 
                                 A
Up in the woods or going out the bay 
        D                           G                 D
There's all kinds of places but the place we likes to get 
             Bm             D    A  D
Is up on the highway in the grav-el pits

Bm D A D


   D                      G               D
We loves to go out in the good old gravel pits
               Bm             D         A
We loves to go out there when life gets smelly 
       D                            G           D
We can spray paint our names on the face of the cliff 
             Bm           D    A   D
Go up to the Irving for a coke and chips 


  D                       G              D
Hitches up the camper and out of town we go 
           Bm           D             A
Out on the highway with everything in tow 
    D                           G             D
The dog is in the back seat and Grandfather's drunk 
                  Bm              D       A      D
Youngsters in the trailer and the wife is in the trunk 


(CHORUS)
         G                  D
It's the 24th of May and we likes to get away 
                                 A
Up in the woods or going out the bay 
        D                           G                 D
There's all kinds of places but the place we likes to get 
             Bm             D    A  D
Is up on the highway in the grav-el pits

Bm D A D


D                       G             D
John is coming over and Sue and Henry too 
                Bm           D            A
We polish off a bottle and a pot of moose stew
   D                      G             D 
We tell a few stories, an awful lot of lies
             Bm             D    A        D
Green boughs on the fire to keep away the flies 


D                                     G                    D
The youngsters gets excited then they starts to bounce and jump up
                     Bm           D         A
When we piles in the car and goes up to the dump 
D                                  G            D
It's cheaper than the movies so we all sits and stares 
          Bm                 D      A      D
Up by the garbage b'y you're lookin at the bears 


(CHORUS)
         G                  D
It's the 24th of May and we likes to get away 
                                 A

Bm D A D


D                            G          D
We flies a Newfie flag on an old spruce pole 
                 Bm         D           A
And drowns a few worms in a tractor mud hole 
D                            G                 D
Then listens to the radio we plays it good and loud 
               Bm               D        A      D       
A scoff on the Coleman stove is bound to draw a crowd 


D                                 G              D
When the weekend's over and we're headed back to town 
               Bm          D            A
A half inch of sloppy snow lying on the ground 
D                             G           D
A hundred dollars poorer, who wants to be rich 
               Bm         D   A      D
We just had a lovely time out in the pits 


(CHORUS)
         G                  D
It's the 24th of May and we likes to get away 
                                 A

        D                           G                 D
There's all kinds of places but the place we likes to get 
             Bm             D    A  D
