Guitar chords with lyrics
Hi hope you Enjoy this tab, for Canadian geese, Fantastic song in my opinion. I have tabbed the intro and chords (names of chords may been inaccurate ?). Also I've given a rough guide of chord placement with the lyrics. I have taken this from his live performance on youtube, "the saturday night with miriam version"

(the same pattern/chords for the rest of verses) Verse 2 The inner city folk, they often spoke, with a tongue that was more like a fist On the reservation six miles north of the slums that some still missed We'd walk the train tracks, out to the haystacks As the swerved towards a greener world under Baldoyle bridge The gateway ridge Our hay jump dreams unfurled repeat Intro (Nah, nah nah, Nah Nah) Verse 3 And the Belfast train nearly killed my friend Wayne As it sped like a bullet flying Carrying souls and dreams, like a time machine, back to 1690 mean time Verse 4 On the flat of my back, in that field by the tracks The Canadian geese flew by In my mind I up and join with them And we glide out to Ireland's eye We can be free, with a little car key, The rivers of tar can take us far There are friends and lovers we have yet to meet And tonight, they are watching these same stars Chorus F# minorF#m G# minorG#m Amaj open E MajorE B7B7 F# minorF#m I was born to wander and I'm not afraid to be free now listen to the song to get the exact changes, the chords to the left give F# minorF#m G# minorG#m AmajOpen you an idea. It stays on the same pattern My heart grows far fonder for these streets until the "outro" which occurs from E MajorE B7B7 F# minorF#m "do you dare to be free" When your face I don't see now Why don't you drop everything tonight And we can ride to the sea now I'll always return but tell me Outro Do you dare to be free (from here on in its a chord progression of F#m, G# minorG#m Amaj open repeated. listen to the way Damo sings it to get a feel. Goodluck if singing the last chorus and outro, he has some set of pipes) Can we snatch victory from the jaws of these streets now When these walls they close in And your heart turns to tin Lets escape to the sea now I can see every face Broken ghosts of this place And they hand us the key now
