John K. Samson – Oldest Oak At Brookside Chords and Lyrics

Artist : John K. Samson
Song : Oldest Oak At Brookside

[Verse 1] : 
A             D5
  Before we built  
A               D5
  That smirking airport
A            D5
  Before the phones
Bm                  E   
Told us where to go

A            D5
  Before the strike
A            D5
  Before the streetcar
A             D5
  Before we read
Bm             E   
Comics on the radio

[Chorus 1] : 
A        D5
Long before
   A        D5
We found a way
   A         D5      A
To gauge the coldest day

[Verse 2] : 
A            D5
  Before the flood
A            D5
  Before the treaty
A           D5
  Before we broke
  Bm                E   
A promise to appear

A           D5
  Before we drew
A              D5
  The new team logo
A             D5
  Before the taste
   Bm           E   
Of Malathion lingered here

[Chorus 2] : 
A      D5
Way before
   A       D5
We skated down
    A     D5        D
The Eaton Place Parkade

[Interlude] : D  E  D/C#  F#m
              D  E  A

[Bridge] : 
D   E       D/C#  F#m
  Before we built that
D   E        A
  Before the fire

D                      E        D/C#                      F#m
  You were lifted by a blue jay,    beating wings above a sea
 (Be...................fore the treaty)
D                        E           A
  With a wave of grazing bison and,  tallgrass prairie
 (Be.....................fore we broke)

[Verse 3] : 
A          D5
  You were set
   A     D5
In sandy soil
    A       D5     A   D5  A  D5
And stand a mighty oak
A       D5     A   
Stand a mighty oak
