Thread Name: Lyr Req: Capture of Albert Johnson (Wilf Carter)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: the mad trapper of rat river
I have the song by Stompin' Tom Connors for sure, and probably by Wilf Carter as well somewhere. I'll even fire up my LP system to get the words right if anyone really wants them. I couldn't find them on the internet. The chords are dead easy.
[C]Up in that far North country
Lived a [F]trapper thought in[C]sane
He [F]robbed his Redskinned [C]neighbours
To the [G7]police they sent a com[C]plaint.
