NORTHWEST PASSAGE    Time: 4/4    Key: D
- Stan Rogers, 1981, on: Northwest Passage


CHORUS:

       1        5             4                  6m
Ah for just one time, I would take the Northwest Passage
   4                1                 2m               4
To find the hand of Franklin reaching for the Beaufort Sea
        1        5              4                6m
Tracing one warm line through a land so wide and savage
    4                1       5      1      *
And make a Northwest Passage to the sea


1                 5                    4                   6m
Westward from the Davis Straight, 'tis there 'twas said to lie
    4                1          2m            4
The sea route to the Orient for which so many died
1                5              4                6m
Seeking gold and glory, leaving weathered broken bones
      4              1      5        1        *
And a long-forgotten lonely cairn of stones


      1               5             4            6m
Three centuries there-after, I take passage over-land
       4                  1                 2m                 4
In the footsteps of brave Kelso, where his "Sea of Flowers" be-gan
         1              5                4              6m
Watching cities rise be-fore me, then be-hind me sink a-gain
     4           1       5       1               *
This tardiest ex-plorer, driving hard across the plain


    1                     5                   4                6m
And through the night, be-hind the wheel, the mileage clicking west
  4              1             2m                4
I think upon Mac-kenzie, David Thompson, and the rest
    1                    5                 4               6m
Who cracked the mountain ramparts, and did show a path for me
   4                1      5      1      *
To race the roaring Fraser to the sea


How then am I so different from the first men through this way
Like them I left a settled life, I threw it all away
To seek a Northwest Passage at the call of many men
To find there but the road back home again
