Ride Forever
composed by Paul Gross and David Keeley
performed by Paul Gross
From the CD "due South: Original Television Soundtrack" (Unforscene Music).

first transcribed to Guitartabs.cc by John Manning

Updated by Russell Reading with pick and new chords.
(using John's words in the hard bits I couldn't get - Thanks to him for them!)

The pick at the beginning goes something like this.
Basically it's the Chord With the top e open, picked with a suitable bass note.

Play the pattern D D, G G D D A G for the 1st verse (or play it as a short intro then strum).

That Pick then....

    D          D        G             G               A


Note: You can also freely interchanged A and Am when playing this, see what sounds best to your ear..

Well I was born up north of Great Slave, 1898,
and I rode near all my life on a ranch near Devil's Gate.
And I've seen this world about me bend and flip and change.
                  Am                        G
Hey it feels like rain -- that's a thundercloud.
Well I've been called a coward, but I've seen two World Wars.
And I lost my son Virgil, a Korean reward.
And my Lucy died last summer. You ask me if I cry,
                    Am                 G
Hell, I've shed tears: all over this ground,
        G                  A            D
they're falling from these blue Alberta skies.


D                   A
We're gonna ride forever,
Em                           G
You can't keep horsemen in a cage.
                  D                    Am
Should the angels call, well it's only then
We'll pull in the reins.

Now they tell me I'm an old man, they tell me I am blind.
They took my driver's license, this house ain't far behind.
I said "Jump back all you big suits, you got something wrong
               Am                G
'cause I ain't gone. No I ain't gone."
I am still breathing, and I still have my pride.
And I have my memories, your life it never dies.
Like the wind that blows in thunder, like the stallion on the fly
         Am                     G
I got it all, and I'm standing tall
G                Am           D
Underneath these blue Alberta skies.


So I say to all you old men: Don't let yourselves get broke.
If you think the world's gone crazy and it's scratching at your throat
it's time to dust off that old saddle and get it on a horse.
             A                           G
Kick up your spurs: we're gonna run like stink
            G                 A            D
We're gonna tear across these blue Alberta skies.

Just like to chime in here.

To me, an Am in the song doesn't sound right at all anywhere.

Also, where you say to play the G in

Am G
Hell, I've shed tears: all over this ground,

and the Em in,

Em G
You can't keep horsemen in a cage.

they should both be a Bm. Reasons being, a - it sounds correct, b - you can watch Paul Gross play a Bm on the youtube videos =]

Lack of accuracy. The intro tab is wrong (g is played only once and then it's a7sus4 kinda like the g but the bass note is a) and then in the rest of the song there is no Am it should be A and Bm instead of Em
