"West St. James" by Greg MacPherson from the album "Balanced on a Pin"

(no chord)    F
I was already on the plane. 
                  Am
I met a man from West St.James. 
                     C
We talked about the exposion at Orest's Barber Shop 
          Bb
and St. James High School. 
                 F
I looked down at Saskatchewan 
                    Am
Like a yellow-green tile floor we were standing on
         C                                          Bb
"Did you know the West Coast is gonna fall into the ocean someday?"
              F
He said, "My friend I hope you don't mind but I have to ask you, 
        Am
are you leaving behind something that's not worth coming back to? 
                 C
'Cause we're the same collection of faults and accidents 
          Bb
no matter where we are." 

Dm    C            G      Bb
      Simpler down there 
Dm    C            G      Bb
      Simpler down there

          F
She was a picture of frustration,
Am
standing all alone in an empty bus station.
  C
Another summer gone. 
        Bb
After a seven hour delay in Saskatoon yesterday. 
            F
I'm looking out at the clouds 
          Am
and we're flying over a storm and a dozen little farms. 
          C                              Bb
There's a fire station at the top of her street and three rinks where.

Dm    C            G      Bb
      Simpler down there 
Dm    C            G      Bb
      Simpler down there
Dm    C            G      Bb
       

F                                 C
 One leaves for something else to say. 
                            Bb
One looks around and walks away. 
                                  G
One hour from now I'll be looking down at the rocky mountains.

F                                 C
 One leaves for something else to say. 
                            Bb
One looks around and walks away. 
                                  G
One hour from now I'll be looking down at the Rocky Mountains.

Dm    C            G      Bb
      Simpler down there 
Dm    C            G      Bb
      Simpler down there
Dm    C            G      Bb
      Simpler down there
