Transpose:
[Verse 1]

C F CI keep coming home just to see you my dear
C F CMy parents are old and their time's coming near
C F CWell my pockets are rich and my back's getting poor
C F Cand I keep my chin high and my feet on the floor
C F CIt must've been some time since I last seen you
C F CWhen you waved me goodbye from your living room
C F CThe company just paid my flight to come home
C F Cand a week off ain't much when you travel alone
[Chorus]
C F G Cand I said I knowww...
C FThat our love can just never be
F G CAs long as I need Fort McMurray
C GLove you know how much I miss the sea
C F G Cand the breeze on the Mira River
C FOh the nights in Whale Cove were the best
Fand as long as there's work on the oil rigs my lover
F G CI'll leave you my heart but I'll die in the west
[Verse 2]
C F CEven out on the rigs I found Maritime charm
C F CAs I worked at the sides of my brothers in arms
C F CHad the lads from the Rock and the mainlanders too
C F CWhen you're this far from home you connect by your roots
C F CWell my grandfather spent half his life underground
C F Cand his lungs were so black that he may as well have drowned
C F Cand now I don't wish for my children to see
C F CTheir old man to look 50 when he's 33
[Chorus]
C F G Cand I said I knowww...
C FThat our love can just never be
F G CAs long as I need Fort McMurray
C GLove you know how much I miss the sea
C F G Cand the breeze on the Mira River
C FOh the nights spent with you were the best
Fand as long as there's work on the oil rigs my lover
F G CI'll leave you my heart but I'll die in the west
[Verse 3]
C F CBaby I know that you love the East Coast
C F CSo I raise up my glass and I offer a toast
C F CTo our last visit before I go back
C F CJust to bank up my money while the oil sands last
C F COh you must tell my son where he'll bury me
C F CIn the soil of Cape Breton I'd much rather be
C F Cand I hope I can save enough money to rest
C F CWhen the time comes to cross my arms over my chest
[Chorus]
C F G Cand I said I knowww...
C FThat our love can just never be
F G CAs long as I need Fort McMurray
C GLove you know how much I miss the sea
C F G Cand the breeze on the Mira River
C FOh the nights in Whale Cove were the best
Fand as long as there's work on the oil rigs my lover
F G CI'll leave you my heart but I'll die in the west
C F G Cand I said I knowww...
C FThat our love can just never be
F G CAs long as I need Fort McMurray
C GLove you know how much I miss the sea
C F G Cand the breeze on the Mira River
C FOh the nights in Whale Cove were the best
Fand as long as there's work on the oil rigs my lover
F G CI'll leave you my heart but I'll die in the west
