Here are the lyrics as I hear them on my Ian & Sylvia album.


THE RENEGADE
L: Ian Tyson; M: Sylvia Fricker (Tyson)


Up on the hillside policemen were climbing,
The ghosts of the night wind their fantasies did tell.
Dark on the snow, with the blood drops a-dryin',
Slipped through cold fingers the whiskey bottle fell.

CHORUS
Kla-how-ya, mother, I leave you with your white man;
I curse their church that tells us that our fathers were wrong!
And I'll hunt my own mowitch and I'll drink my own whiskey
And I'll sing until morning the old fashioned song.

Fires of the potlatch are scattered in their ashes.
Ma-sat-chie-ta-ma-now-wits, the evil one remains.
And our children cannot follow the old nor the new ways
And the poles of their fathers are rotting in the rain.

(CHORUS)

Daylight came late over high coastal mountains.
The renegade stood watching, his rifle by his side
Then he emptied his gun up into the pale yellow sunrise
And he ran down the hillside the to place where he died.

(CHO)

Here are the chords I use:

THE RENEGADE
L: Ian Tyson; M: Sylvia Fricker (Tyson)


(G)Up on the hill(D)side po(G)licemen were clim(D)bing,
The (Em)ghosts of the (C)night wind their fan(G)tasies did (D)tell.
(G)Dark on the (D)snow, with the (G)blood drops a-dry(D)in',
(Em)Slipped through cold fin(C)gers the whis(G)key bottle (D)fell.

CHORUS
(G)Kla-how-ya, mot(C)her, I (G)leave you with your (C)white man;
I (A)curse their church that (D)tells us that our fa(A7)thers were (D)wrong!
And I'll (G)hunt my own mow(D)itch and I'll (Em)drink my own whis(D)key
And I'll (Em)sing until mor(C)ning the (G)old fashioned (D)song.

(G)Fires of the pot(D)latch are scat(G)tered in their ash(D)es.
Ma-(Em)sat-chie-ta-ma-(C)now-wits, the e(G)vil one re(D)mains.
(G)And our children cannot (D)follow the (G)old nor the (D)new ways
And the (Em)poles of their (C)fathers are rot (G)ting in the (D)rain.

(CHORUS)

(G)Daylight came (D)late over (G)high coastal moun(D)tains.
The re(Em)negade stood watch(C)ing, his rif(G)le by his (D)side
(G)Then he emptied his (D)gun up in (G)to the pale yellow sun(D)rise
And he (Em)ran down the (C)hillside the to (G)place where he (D)died.

(CHO)

And I thought the thread was going to tell me what all those renegade chords (you know - the ones that never sound quite like real chords, but somehow work in a particular accompaniment) are!
Quack!
GtD.

Same here. Kinda like "power chords" but on DC instead of AC (or vice versa...)
