[intro]
E  A  B  A

              E          A
It covers the roadways
              B          A
It covers the hill  -   sides
              E          A
It covers the houses
              B          A
It covers the frozen -  pines

               E          A
   We had the snowfall
               B          A
To run all the rations   dry
               E          A
   When we got hungry
                B          A
We'd taken what wasn't ours

            B
Now we will set out
    A                      B
The seats are cold on this boat
                       E       A   B   A
As we head towards the ocean

           B
Making our way out
A
Trying to survive
   B                       E      A   B   A
As we head our towards the ocean

[solo]
E  A  B  A ...

[verse]

Eb                      Ab
I'm not sure where this river goes
       Bb                    Ab
But we have no choice but to follow
         Eb                    Ab
There is smoke in the sky over those trees
       Bb                    Ab
Let us hope they are kind to you and me

       Gm
Let us hope,
                 Ab     Gm
let us hope they have enough
                Ab      Gm
Winter comes it sure is rough
              Ab
Maybe they'll welcome us
   Gm
We won't ask much
          Gm
But their rations were low
         Ab
And they couldn't help us
   Bb     Eb  Ab  Bb  Ab
So off we go

              Eb        Ab
It covers the roadways
              Bb        Ab
It covers the hill  -  sides
              Eb        Ab
It covers the houses
              Bb        Ab
It covers the frozen pines

            Ab
Now we will set out
The seats are cold on this boat
                       Eb   Ab   Bb   Ab
As we head towards the ocean

           Ab
Making our way out
Trying to survive
                           Eb   Ab   Bb   Ab
As we head our towards the ocean
            Eb    Ab    Bb    Ab
Towards the ocean
            Eb    Ab    Bb    Ab
Towards the ocean
            Eb    Ab    Bb    Ab
Towards the ocean
