Pick strings as in 'I'm One' 



Em7                         C                   G   Gsus2/4   G
If you're travellin' to the north country far, 

                    Em7          C                   G   Gsus2/4   G
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline 

         Em7   C                   G   Gsus2/4   G
Remember me to one who lives there 

         Em7   C                   G   Gsus2/4   G
She once was a true love of mine. 



             Em7        C                   G   Gsus2/4   G
And when you go and the snowflakes fall

            Em7       C                   G   Gsus2/4   G
The rivers freeze and summer ends 

               Em7           C                          G   Gsus2/4   G
Please see for me that she's wearing a coat so warm 

             Em7       C                   G   Gsus2/4   G
And keep her from that howlin' wind. 


(instrumental: repeat verse and extend "Em7" on third.)

               Em7         C                     G   Gsus2/4   G
Please see for me that her hair's hanging long 

            Em7       C                   G   Gsus2/4   G
It bows and flows all down her breast, 

               Em7         C                     G   Gsus2/4   G
Please see for me that her hair's hanging long 

               Em7     C                     G   Gsus2/4   G
for that's the way I remember her best. 



              Em7        C                     G   Gsus2/4   G
I'm wonderin' if she remembers me at all

         Em7          C                     G   Gsus2/4   G 
The many times I've often lay 

       Em7      C                     G   Gsus2/4   G
In the darkness of my night 

       Em7         C                     G   Gsus2/4   G
In the brightness of my day. 




             Em7               C                     G   Gsus2/4   G
So if you're travellin' to the north country far, 

                    Em7           C                     G   Gsus2/4   G
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline 

         Em7   C                     G   Gsus2/4   G
Remember me to one who lives there,

             Em7   C                     G   Gsus2/4   G 
For she once was a true love of mine.
