Show of Hands – Northwest Passage

[Verse]
F#m                 A
Westward from the Davis Strait,
      E         A        D
'Tis  there was said to  lie,
     D                 A
The  sea route to the  Orient,
     Bm               D
For  which so many  died,
D                 A
Seeking gold and  glory,
         E       A       D
Leaving  broken wethared bones, and
   F#m             A      E         D       E
A  long forgotten  lonely cairn of  stones.
 
[Chorus]
        A        E
Ah, for just one time,
  A     D        A         D
I would take the Northwest Passage
   F#m              A
To find the hand of Franklin,
         Bm               D
Reaching for the Beaufort Sea.
        A        E
Tracing one warm line,
        A D       A        D
Through a land so wide and savage, and
F#m              A        E      F#m
Make a Northwest Passage, to the sea.
 
[Verse 2]
      F#m               A
Three centuries there - after,
       E       A    D
I take passage over land,
       D                  A
In the footsteps of brave Kelso,
          Bm                  D
Where his "sea of flowers" be-gan.
         D             A
Watching cities rise before me,
          E       A       D
Then be - hind me sink a -gain,
     F#m           A
This tardiest ex - plorer,
         E         A         D       E
Driving  hard, a - cross the plains.
 
[Chorus]
        A        E
Ah, for just one time,
  A     D        A         D
I would take the Northwest Passage
   F#m              A
To find the hand of Franklin,
         Bm               D
Reaching for the Beaufort Sea.
        A        E
Tracing one warm line,
        A D       A        D
Through a land so wide and savage, and
F#m              A        E      F#m
Make a Northwest Passage, to the sea.
 
[Verse 3]
    F#m                    A
And through the night be - hind the wheel,
    E         A        D
The / mileage clicking west,
  D                A
I think upon Mac - kenzie,
      Bm                D
David Thompson, and the rest,
    D                    A
Who cracked the mountain ramparts, and
    E      A        D
Did show a path for me,
   F#m                A       E      D    E
To race the roaring / Fraser, to the sea.
 
[Chorus]
        A        E
Ah, for just one time,
  A     D        A         D
I would take the Northwest Passage
   F#m              A
To find the hand of Franklin,
         Bm               D
Reaching for the Beaufort Sea.
        A        E
Tracing one warm line,
        A D       A        D
Through a land so wide and savage, and
F#m              A        E      F#m
Make a Northwest Passage, to the sea.
 
[Verse 4]
    F#m          A
How then am I so different,
         E         A            D
From the first men through this way,
     D              A
Like them, I left a settled life,
  Bm               D
I threw it all a - way,
   D                A
To seek a Northwest Passage,
       E       A     D
At the call of many men,
   F#m                 A         E        D     E
To find there, but the road back home a - gain.
 
[Chorus]
        A        E
Ah, for just one time,
  A     D        A         D
I would take the Northwest Passage
   F#m              A
To find the hand of Franklin,
         Bm               D
Reaching for the Beaufort Sea.
        A        E
Tracing one warm line,
        A D       A        D
Through a land so wide and savage, and
F#m              A        E      F#m
Make a Northwest Passage, to the sea.
