             AN AMERICAN DRAFT DODGER IN THUNDER BAY  Sam Roberts       tabbed by AVH
Dmin
He was born in a small town 
G                       Amin      Emin
And he was given every reason to stay 
Dmin                       G                 Amin    Emin
Hallelujah, Mississippi, postcard living no sign of decay 
Dmin                                 G            Amin    Emin
Till Vietnam moved next door, then Hallelujah was off to war 
Dmin
In the dream he couldn't finish the deed
           G                Amin  Emin
He didn't smoke any weed so why leave? 

Dmin           Gmin      A
Going where I can't be found 
      Dmin      Gmin     A
And I won't be coming 'round 

Dmin
His father Tom said you better sign on 
             G                     Amin, Emin
You'd better take up your gun and fight 
Dmin 
I got nothing against them Viet Cong 
G                              Amin   Emin
What did they do wrong and why am I right? 

Dmin
He's on his way to Thunder Bay 
            G               Amin, Emin
Crossed the border late at night 
Dmin
And it was high stakes until he saw the Great Lakes 
        G                  Amin, Emin
And he felt the cold wind bite 

Dmin          Gmin       A
Going where I can't be found
Dmin          Gmin       A
And I won't be coming 'round 
            Dmin
No, I'm an American on the Canadian Shield 
         Bflat                      F       A
And I'm putting down roots in your frozen fields
 Dmin                                       Bflat
It gets cold but you feel so good to be a stranger in a town and you're 
F      A
understood 
Dmin
Missing his home, he would wake up in a cold sweat 
Dmin                                            G       Amin, Emin
And pick up the phone and hope that Tom found a way to forget 
Dmin          
He's been teaching at the high school, learning the game 
    G                         Amin, Emin
In Thunder Bay we're all the same 
Dmin       
He's one of us, he has our trust 
            G                       Amin     Emin
But there's no going back once the line is crossed 

Dmin
I'm an American on the Canadian Shield 
          Bflat                      F      A
And I'm putting down roots in your frozen fields 
Dmin                                         Bflat
It gets cold but you feel so good to be a stranger in a town and you're 
F      A
understood 
Dmin
You can't ask what you're asking me to do 
       C                       F    A
And I hope you understand when I refuse 
Dmin
I'm going North with my point of view 
         C                     F      A
And I'm never gonna think the same as you 
Dmin                       C     F      A
And I'm where I can't be found 
Dmin                      C        F      A
And I won't be coming 'round 
Dmim
No, I'm an American on the Canadian Shield 
         Bflat                      F       A
And I'm putting down roots in your frozen fields 
        Dmin                                Bflat
It gets cold but you feel so good to be a stranger in a town and you're 
F      A
understood
