Arrogant Worms - The Last Saskatchewan Pirate tab

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Alright...Since the only tab I found on here was the wrong key, this is my own tab.

I played this at my family reunion not long ago, and my cousins sang it along with me. 
uncle brought his acoustic also, so I taught him the chords so he could play along.

Later he asked me for the chords, and the only page I could link him to on here was in 
wrong key...

So here you go, man.

===================================================
The Last Saskatchewan Pirate by The Arrogant Worms
===================================================

        C                        F      G      C
Well I used to be a farmer and I made a living fine
  F            C               G
I had a little stretch of land along the CP line
        C                                F     G      C
But times went by and though I tried the money wasn't there
    F                C                G                C
And bankers came and took my land and told me "Fair is Fair"

  Am                               D
I looked for every kind of job the answer always "No",
Am                                      G
"Hire you now" they'd always laugh, "We just let Twenty go!" (Haha)
    Am                             D
The government, they promised me a measley little sum,
    Am                                G
But I've got too much pride to end up just another bum!

       F                                             F  C
Then I thought who gives a damn if all the jobs are gone,
G
I'm gonna be a pirate, on the river Saskatchewan!

Chorus:

           (Mute) C  (Mute) C   F      G        C
And it's a Heave (HO) High (HO) Comin' down the plains,
F                  C          G
Stealin' Wheat and Barley and all the other grains,
         (Mute) C  (Mute)  C     F       G       C
And it's a Ho (HEY!) High (HEY!) Farmers bar yer doors,
         F             C           G            C
When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores.

(Repeat the first half of the chorus without lyrics once, then play C for two measures.)

         C                             F         G      C
Well you think the local farmers would know that I'm at large,
    F              C              G
But just the other day I found an unprotected barge,
  C                              F         G        C
I snuck up right behind them and they were none the wiser,
  F                   C             G              C
I rammed the ship and sank it and I stole the Fertilizer


  Am                         D
A Bridge outside of Moosejaw spans the mighty river,
Am                                  G
Farmers cross in so much fear their stomach's are a quiver,
Am                                      D
'Cause they know that Captain Tractor's hiding in the bay,
     Am                                    G
I'll jump the bridge and knock em cold and sail off with their Hay!

Chorus:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/a/arrogant-worms/171465.html ]
           (Mute) C  (Mute) C   F      G        C
And it's a Heave (HO) High (HO) Comin' down the plains,
F                  C          G
Stealin' Wheat and Barley and all the other grains,
         (Mute) C  (Mute)  C     F       G       C
And it's a Ho (HEY!) High (HEY!) Farmers bar yer doors,
         F             C           G            C
When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores.

     C                               F      G     C
Well Mountie Bob he chased me he was always at my throat,
   F               C                    G
He followed on the shorelines 'cause he didn't own a boat,
    C                               F       G        C
But cut-backs were a comin' and the Mountie lost his job,
   F                C              G              C
So now he's sailin' with me and we call him Salty Bob!

  Am                                     D
A Swingin' Sword and Skull and Bones are pleasant company,
  Am                          G              (Mute)
I never pay my Income Tax and screw the GST (SCREW IT!)
Am                            D
Salin' down to Saskatoon, the Terror of the Sea,
       Am                            G
If you wanna reach the Co-op boy you gotta get by me!

Chorus:

           (Mute) C  (Mute) C   F      G        C
And it's a Heave (HO) High (HO) Comin' down the plains,
F                  C          G
Stealin' Wheat and Barley and all the other grains,
         (Mute) C  (Mute)  C     F       G       C
And it's a Ho (HEY!) High (HEY!) Farmers bar yer doors,
         F             C           G            C
When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores.

     C                               F          G       C
Well pirate life's appealing but you don't just find it here,
  F               C               B
I hear in North Alberta there's a band of buccaneers,
     C                       F        G    C
They roam the Athabasca from Smith to Port McKay,
           F               C              G                  C
And you're gonna lose your stetson if you have to pass their way.


     Am                       D
Well Winter is a comin' and a chill is in the breeze,
   Am                            G
My pirate days are over once the river starts to freeze,
    Am                              D
But I'll be back in Spring time but now I have to go,
  Am                                   G
I hear there's lots of plundering down in New Mexico!

Chorus:

           (Mute) C  (Mute) C   F      G        C
And it's a Heave (HO) High (HO) Comin' down the plains,
F                  C          G
Stealin' Wheat and Barley and all the other grains,
         (Mute) C  (Mute)  C     F       G       C
And it's a Ho (HEY!) High (HEY!) Farmers bar yer doors,
         F             C           G            C
When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores.

And it's a Heave (HO) High (HO) Comin' down the plains,

Stealin' Wheat and Barley and all the other grains,

And it's a Ho (HEY!) High (HEY!) Farmers bar yer doors,
         (Lyrics slow)
When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores.

When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores...
