Corb Lund Band – Long Gone To Saskatchewan chords

Chords
Transpose:
Fantastic song by a good Alberta boy.  After the 2009 Grey Cup, the flat province 
needs something to smile about!

The song is played capo-3, and the chords are written relative to the capo (ie. 
the song is actually in G)

EWell I'm long gone to Saskatchewan
F#Long gone to Saskatchewan
AWhere the gettin's good if you're gettin' gone
B7I'm gonna put my boots and my hat back on.
A ECause I'm long gone to Saskatchewan
A ELong gone to Saskatchewan
EWell it's a hell of a battle to try to raise cattle
AIn the prettiest place on the hoof
B7Oil refiners and lot sub-dividers
EGot land prices right through the roof
They got value's distorted and my brow's all contorted With the words that the banker just wrote Me and the missus, we love the cow business Took jobs just to keep us afloat The old lady's a waitress in three different places And still can't afford her own car I've been drivin' grader, I'm a smooth operator Wonderin' where all the gravel roads are I like Alberta, but dang ain't ya hearda How much it can cost to buy oats? I'll always love her and think kindly of her But I got no money left over for smokes
E Well I'm long gone to Saskatchewan
F#Long gone to Saskatchewan
AWhere the gettin's good if you're gettin' gone
B7I'm gonna put my boots and my hat back on
AAdios, goodbye, farewell, so long
A EI'm long gone to Saskatchewan
A ELong gone to Saskatchewan
She's a little bit flatter but the cows are as fatter So I think I'm gonna get me a tent Cuz I can buy up an acre beside a nice lake here For what it costs me at home to just rent Sure, the winters are tough and roads get rough And we might have to feed a bit more And it's further to ship'em, but damned if it isn't Good cow country this, that's for sure I can miss my foothills here and still drink my pilsner And bitch and complain and surmise About missin' the mountain, buy hey, look, who's countin' My place here is five times the size Well I'm long gone to Saskatchewan Long gone to Saskatchewan Where the gettin's good if your gettin' gone I'm gonna put my boots and my hat back on Adios, goodbye, farewell, so long I'm long gone to Saskatchewan Long gone to Saskatchewan Solo (Play chorus chords) Now i gotta give honours to Stompin' Tom Connors For "Roll on Saskatchewan" first And Hus put his toque on in "Long Gone to the Yukon" I figured he owed us a verse But I've been comin' out bringin' my t-shirts and singin' To my good eastern neighbours so long And you put up with dumb jokes about your province and so I figured hey, I owed you a song.
E Well I'm long gone to Saskatchewan
F#Long gone to Saskatchewan
AWhere the gettin's good if you're gettin' gone
B7I'm gonna put my boots and my hat back on
Raise my cows like my grand daddy done Where the birch trees grow and the sharp tail roam
AAdios, goodbye, farewell, so long
A EI'm long gone to Saskatchewan
A ELong gone to Saskatchewan
A ELong gone
A ELong gone
A ELong gone to Saskatchewan
