Canadian Rose Chords

   
This is a fairly simple piece, it just requires a lot of bar chords.  If you don't want
to use bar chords, you can also play it with a capo, but it doesn't sound as good.

Intro: B E B F# 
       B E B F# B
Autumn air it carries me there
B             E
Less than an hour ago
B            E
Six hundred miles an hour
B           E
And still it feels so slow
G#m          F#
I'm trying to get back to Burlington
B                         E
To a square in the center of town
B                            E
To a spot on a wooden table
B                     E
Where her feet didn't reach the ground
G#m                    F#
And when she kisses me it tasted like cinnamon
B                                     E
And her skin smells of cidar and rose
B                                E
And when she looked at me we both got quiet
B                                     E
And my heart beats so hard we were in so close
G#m                                    F#
Once for such a beautiful while that still makes me smile
B                         F#                        B
                        
And she called me her ugly American
B                          E
And I would call her my Canadian flower
B                                E
And I don't think that we'll ever get there again
B                                     E
We had such power
       G#m  F#
And she called me her ugly American
B                          E
And I'll remember my Canadian rose
B                             E
Especially when the fall comes to Burlington
B                                 E
We were in so close
          G#m   F#

I finally made it this town looks rearranged
B                                 E
I don't know these people anymore
B                         E
But in the best ways not much else has changed
B                                      E
From the way it was before
G#m                 F#
And at least they still have this certain table
B                                     E
Where I once carved a particular name
B                                 E
I run my finger through the weathered carving
B                                E
And I almost can feel the same
G#m                       F#
And my mouth it almost tastes just like cinnamon
B                                       E
As I ponder what my pilgrimage means
B                              E
And I try to figure out where Vancouver is from here
B                                               E
And I listen to the leaves
G#m                   F#
If only for a beautiful while that still makes me smile
B                       F#                        B

And she called me her ugly American
B                          E
And I would call her my Canadian flower
B                                E
And I don't think that we'll ever get there again
B                                     E
We had such power
       G#m  F#
And she called me her ugly American
B                          E
And I'll remember my Canadian rose
B                             E
Especially when the fall comes to Burlington
B                                 E
We were in so close
          G#m   F#

And every single hope and dream I could ever conjure up
B                               E
Passionately springs in me and all things are possible
B                                          E
Plausible and perfectly both of ours forever after and every day
B                                                E
At least it seemed that way
G#m                 F#
Once for such a beautiful while that still makes me smile
B                       F#                          B


And she called me her ugly American
B                          E
And I would call her my Canadian flower
B                                E
And I don't think that we'll ever get there again
B                                     E
We had such power
       G#m  F#
And she called me her ugly American
B                          E
And I'll remember my Canadian rose
B                             E
Especially when the fall comes to Burlington
B                                 E
We were in so close
          G#m   F#




If you don't want to use bar chords, put a capo on the fourth fret and use G instead of
B, C instead of E, E minor instead of G#m, and D instead of F#.
