Ride Forever
composed by Paul Gross and David Keeley
performed by Paul Gross
From the CD "due South: Original Television Soundtrack" (Unforscene Music).

first transcribed to Guitartabs.cc by John Manning

Updated by Russell Reading with pick and new chords.
(using John's words in the hard bits I couldn't get - Thanks to him for them!)

The pick at the beginning goes something like this.
Basically it's the Chord With the top e open, picked with a suitable bass note.

Play the pattern D D, G G D D A G for the 1st verse (or play it as a short intro then strum).

That Pick then....

    D	       D	G	      G               A

Note: You can also freely interchanged A and Am when playing this, see what sounds best to your ear.. D Well I was born up north of Great Slave, 1898, G and I rode near all my life on a ranch near Devil's Gate. D And I've seen this world about me bend and flip and change. Am G Hey it feels like rain -- that's a thundercloud. D Well I've been called a coward, but I've seen two World Wars. G And I lost my son Virgil, a Korean reward. D And my Lucy died last summer. You ask me if I cry, Am G Hell, I've shed tears: all over this ground, G A D they're falling from these blue Alberta skies. Chorus: D A We're gonna ride forever, Em G You can't keep horsemen in a cage. D Am Should the angels call, well it's only then G We'll pull in the reins. D Now they tell me I'm an old man, they tell me I am blind. G They took my driver's license, this house ain't far behind. D I said "Jump back all you big suits, you got something wrong Am G 'cause I ain't gone. No I ain't gone." D I am still breathing, and I still have my pride. G And I have my memories, your life it never dies. D Like the wind that blows in thunder, like the stallion on the fly Am G I got it all, and I'm standing tall G Am D Underneath these blue Alberta skies. [chorus] D So I say to all you old men: Don't let yourselves get broke. G If you think the world's gone crazy and it's scratching at your throat D it's time to dust off that old saddle and get it on a horse. A G Kick up your spurs: we're gonna run like stink G A D We're gonna tear across these blue Alberta skies. [chorus]
