Ride Forever
composed by Paul Gross and David Keeley
performed by Paul Gross
transcribed by John Manning (

Well I was born up north of Great Slave, 1898,
and I rode near all my life on a ranch near Devil's Gate.
And I've seen this world about me bend and flip and change.
                  B                        A
Hey it feels like rain -- that's a thundercloud.
Well I've been called a coward, but I've seen two World Wars.
And I lost my son Virgil, a Korean reward.
And my Lucy died last summer. You ask me if I cry,
                    B                            Cm
Hell, I'll show you tears: they're all over this ground,
        A                  B            E
they're falling from these blue Alberta skies.

[ Tab from: ]
E                   B
We're gonna ride forever,
Cm                           A
You can't keep horsemen in a cage.
                  E                    B
Should the angels call, well it's only then
We might pull in the reins.

Now they tell me I'm an old man, they tell me I am blind.
They took my driver's license, this house ain't far behind.
I said "Jump back all you big suits, you got something wrong
               B                A
'cause I ain't gone. No I ain't gone."
I am still breathing, and I still have my pride.
And I have my memories, your life it never dies.
Like the wind that blows in thunder, like the stallion on the fly
         B                     Cm
I got it all, and I'm standing tall
A                B            E
Underneath these blue Alberta skies.


So I say to all you old men: Don't let yourselves get broke.
If you think the world's gone crazy and it's scratching at your throat
it's time to dust off that old saddle and get it on a horse.
             B                           Cm
Kick up your spurs: we're gonna run like stink
            A                 B            E
We're gonna tear across these blue Alberta skies.
