|D         Dsus2  Dsus4 |D              Dsus2 Dsus4
  When you travel to the green hills of Ayr
|D                     Dsus2   Dsus4 |D          Dsus2  Dsus4
  Where the sea breaks windows on the borderline
|D         Dsus2 Dsus4|D              Dsus2  Dsus4
  Remember me  to a    girl who lives there
|G                       |Asus4       A7sus4 |A
  For she once was a true love of mine

Please see for me that her red hair is long
And flows and curls down her back and breast
Please see for me that her red hair is long
For that's the way I remember her the best

[chorus]
             |D     G  A|D
North Country girl, ohhh
G     A      |D     G  A|D
North Country girl, ohhh
G     A      |Bm    A |G
North Country girl, ohhh
             |D    G A|D    G A|D    G A|D     G G|
North Country girl

[bridge]
|A                             |            A5
   See that she's warm when the summer ends
|Bm                           |G  
   When trees are bare and the rivers freeze
|A                             |            A5
   She washes clothes where the river bends
|Bm                    |G      
   She's working on her knees

[interlude]
|Bm    A|Bm    A|D     A|D     A|Bm    A|Bm     A|D    A|D     |

See for me that her coat's pulled up close
And her beret frames her sweet pretty face
She that's warm and drink her a toast
For I am exiled in a lonely place

Please let me know if she remembers me at all
A hundred times I've hoped and prayed
That way up there near the Roman wall
She didn't suffer when the fallout sprayed 

[repeat chorus]
North Country girl, ohhh
North Country girl, ohhh
North Country girl, ohhh
             |D    G A|D    G A|D    G A|D D D D
North Country girl
