CAPO: 2nd Fret



INTRO: C  G  C  G  C

                                          G      C
Heard a voice call down from the lonesome north
                              G      F
Singing songs of the work I'm worth
                                      C
I'd heard stories from the hard north towns


                       G      C
I can picture Saturday night
                                     G       F
Tyres squealing from the Main Street lights
                                                           C     F
At the creaking on the cables and the cage as it's lowered down
                                                C
Hard edged stories from the streets of a mining town


CHORUS:

Don't follow me in, boys
                G
Don't follow me in, boys
                F
Don't follow me in, boys
                C
Don't follow me down


                           G     C
I was raised by the Seaway side
                         G    F
Staring out at the River Wye
                                                       C
Hauled my bike up the bridge, looked back at the paper mill


                              G    C
Through the windows I try and see
                             G            F
What the future held for the likes of me
                                  C      F
I can hear the shift-change siren still
                                              C
In the Seaway city by the stacks of the paper mill


CHORUS:

Don't follow me in, boys
                G
Don't follow me in, boys
                F
Don't follow me in, boys
                C
Don't follow me down


CHORUS:

Don't follow me in, boys
                G
Don't follow me in, boys
                F
Don't follow me in, boys
                C
Don't follow me down


INSTRUMENTAL: C  G  F  C    G  F  C


                                       G      C
And the towns arose with the mines and mills
                                  G               F
Watched the future pass like it's standing still
                                                    C
And the kids all leave like light when the sun goes down


                                     G        C
And you go back now and you walk the streets
                                             G           F
And there's parking lots where the buildings used to be
                                         C      F
Night still falls, but it doesn't make a sound
                                                C
Long shadows fall on the streets of a cold mill town


CHORUS:

Don't follow me in, boys
                G
Don't follow me in, boys
                F
Don't follow me in, boys
                C
Don't follow me down


CHORUS:

Don't follow me in, boys
                G
Don't follow me in, boys
                F
Don't follow me in, boys
                C
Don't follow me down


CHORUS:

Don't follow me in, boys
                G
Don't follow me in, boys
                F
Don't follow me in, boys
                C
Don't follow me down
