Harperville by Curtis Mutter

Strumming pattern:

ON C CHORD            ON F CHORD            ON G CHORD
|---0-0-----0-0-|     |---1-1-----1-1-|     |---1-1-----1-1-|
|---1-1-----1-1-|     |---1-1-----1-1-|     |---0-0-----0-0-|
|---0-0-----0-0-|     |---2-2-0h2-----|     |---0-0-----0-0-|
|---2-2-0h2-2-2-|     |-3-------------|     |---0-0-----0-0-|
|-3-------------|     |---------------|     |-------0h2-----|
|---------------|     |---------------|     |-3-------------|

The very opening and very end of the song have an additional lick while on the C Chord that goes as follows:

|---0-0-----0-0---0-0-----0-0---------------0-0-----0-0-|    
|---1-1-----1-1---1-1-----1-1---------------1-1-----1-1-|

|-3-------------3-------------------------3-------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------|

And occasionally a second guitar comes in and plays a few basic notes at the end of each vocal line:

C
‘twas in ’06 of February,
F                C
With a speech on monarchy,

In Canada, our old country,
    G                       C
Our new system’s seeds were planted.

C
’07 turned into ’08,
F                  C
Election time, the turn out rate,

The lowest ever, to that date,
        G               C
Yet his rule was not supplanted.

C
And so it was in 2010,
      F                    C
They accused poor Harps of war crimes then,

Our guests of war, those Afghan friends,
         G          C
Weren’t entirely enchanted.

C
Time marched on to 2012,
     F                 C
His “Code of Silence” death grip held,

Press conference more show than tell,
    G            C
The CAJ couldn’t stand it.

C
Now here we are C-51,
    F             C
Our privacy could be undone,

It’d sure be fun for everyone,
       G                    C
If our basic rights weren’t granted.

C
Surveillance and secret police,
        F            C
They’ll spy on us to keep the peace,

And with less accountability,
    G               C
Oh, how I hope they pass it.

C
If at the pipeline, you shake your fist,
        F             C
They’ll book you as a terrorist,

C-51 allows for this,
       G            C
That’s why I’m so emphatic.

C
Criminals are liabilities,
     F                    C
Life sentence should mean life, you see,

They’ll rot in jail and won’t go free,
    G              C
And disappear like magic.

C
So we’ll only ever do good deeds,
         F             C
When the correctional facilities,

Are all permanent infirmaries,
      G             C
Let’s hope that is enacted.

C
Although it sounds like science fiction,
    F             C
Our nation put in this position,

It’s as purposeful as my diction,
G           C
Do you understand it?

C
So if Harper loves his monarchy,
F                C
When he dies his son can lead,

A shut down of democracy,
    G              C
Our Native Land re-branded.

C
So in 2020 Harperville,
F              C
Of the leader, don’t speak ill,

This police state, it surely will,
G            C
See you as a bandit.

C
His views seem often homophobic,
  F         C
Environment-Al-Gore-phobic,

Silenced all the scientific,
     G                    C
When they were greenhouse candid.

C
So yes they’ll tap your telephones,
           F           C
But you’ll pay for it if you moan,

His sticks and stones can break your bones,
     G                    C
Your free speech will be retracted.

C
Harperville, Oh Harperville,
F                 C
Won’t you come to Harperville,

But if C-51 it ain’t your bill,
     G                C
Then move on further ‘round the hill.

C
Harperville, Oh Harperville,
F                 C
Please do come to Harperville,

It’s only terrorists we kill,
G                C
Here in pleasant Harperville.
