lyrics

V1:
D C G D
Well he’s got a Duluth pack and a compass, no map just a memory to guide us.
As we slip into that deep, dark woods, on a path north of Grand Marais.
V2:
Out where the wild beasts swallow the city noise,
and all the young men used to be old boys,
We paddled with the wind to the place he knew,
Guided by the silver of a (F) cowboy moon,

Chorus:
C G D
and Sky Diamonds, Sky Diamonds oh ho.
Sky Diamonds, Sky Diamonds oh ho
Sky Diamonds, Sky Diamonds, oh they’ll carry you (D) home

Break:
And we were somewhere near the border, didn’t know if we’d crossed over.
Way up near the border, and it’s been years since he’s been that way.

V3:
Back in the day he used to come here all the time,
Hiking and fishing would (F)ease his mind.
Sittin’ in canoes, playing old guitars,
Listening to the loons as they’re (F)hollering, to the stars

Chorus:
Solo to Chorus:

V4:
He said subtraction will get you where you want to be,
Just a place in the woods, no (F)elec tricity.

Chorus:
