                             BLACKFLY SONG - Wade Hemsworth
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Wil-man-101 on Ultimate-Guitar


Capo five

C
  'Twas early in the spring when I decided to go
       Am                              Em
For to work up in the woods in North Ontar-i-o
        C
And the unemployment office said they'd send me through
       Am                      Em
To the Little Abitibi with the survey crew

CHORUS:
        Am
And the blackflies, the little blackflies
C
Always the blackfly, no matter where you go
     Dm
I'll die with the blackfly picking my bones
   F             C
In North Ontar-i-o-i-o
           Em    Am
In North Ontar-i-o

The man Black Toby was the captain of the crew
And he said, "I'm gonna tell you boys what we're gonna do.”
“They want to build a power dam and we must find a way
“For to make the little Ab flow around the other way"

CHORUS

So we surveyed to the east and we surveyed to the west
And we couldn't make our minds up how to do it best
Little Ab, little Ab, what shall I do?
For I'm all but goin' crazy on the survey crew

CHORUS

'Twas blackfly, blackfly everywhere
A-crawlin' in your whiskers, a-crawlin' in your hair
Swimmin' in the soup, and Swimmin in the tea
The Devil take the blackfly, let me be

CHORUS

(Blackfly, little blackfly)

Black Toby fell to swearin', the work went slow
And the state of our morale was a-gettin' pretty low
And the flies swarmed heavy, it was hard to catch a breath
As you staggered up and down the trail talkin' to yourself

CHORUS

Well, now the bull cook's name was Blind River Joe
If it hadn't been for him we'd have never pulled through
For he bound up our bruises, and he kidded us for fun
And he lathered us with bacon grease and balsam gum

CHORUS

At last the job was over, Black Toby said “We're through
“With the Little Abitibi and the survey crew.”
'Twas a wonderful experience and this I know
I'll never go again to North Ontar-i-o

CHORUS (x2)
