Subject: RE: Chord Req: Land of Three Rivers
Okay, I'm typing this from memory without my guitar to check -- what can I say, I'm at work -- but this is (roughly) how I do it:
[C] Ah my name is John [Am] North from the [F] South of the [G] Forth,
In the [F] Land of Three [G] Rivers I [C] dwell.
In the steelworks and [Am] pits I've [F] worked with me [G] mates,
Not a [F] bad word a- [G] gainst them I'll [C] tell.
[D] They're the best bunch of [G] lads and I'll [A] tell you for [A] why,
If they thought it would [A] help you they'd jump in the [G] Tyne.
[C] In the Land of Three [Am] Rivers I'm [F] longing to [G] be,
Where the [F] Tyne, Wear and [G] Tees meet the [F] North's rolling [C] sea.
