    Canadian Pacific by Ray Griff

    [C] [D7] [G7]

    I [C] rode your ocean liner to New[Dm]foundland

    Where I [Am] made a living in a iron [G7] mine

    When I [F] got my fill I went to Nova [G7] Scotia

    And I [D7] fished the salty waters for a [G7] time

     

    Passing [C] through Prince Edward Island and New [Dm] Brunswick

    I could [Am] see the rocks and cliffs of solid [G7] stone

    Listening [F] to the seagulls calling to each other [G7]

    Made me miss my darling and my distant [C] home

    Canadian Pa[D7]ci[G7]fic

    Carry me 3,000 [C] miles

    Through the valleys and the [F] forests

    [G7] To the sunshine of her [C] smile

    Cross the plains and rugged [Dm] mountains

    [G7] Keep this wandering boy from [C] harm

    Canadian Pa[F]cific [G7] take me to my baby's [C] arms

    The Atlantic disappeared on the [Dm] horizon

    And [Am] Quebec lay waiting for me down the [G7] track

    For a [F] while I drove a truck to keep from [G7] starving

    In [D7] Ontario I was a lumber [G7] jack

    Mani[C]toba and Saskatchewan then [Dm] followed

    Where the [Am] wheat fields and the old Red River [G7] flow

    In the [F] quiet hours your whistling on the [G7] prairie

    Touched my heart and set my memories [C] aglow [D7] [G7]

    I could [C] feel the nearness of her warm sweet [Dm] kisses

    When you [Am] rolled into Alberta westward [G7] bound

    I worked [F] on an oil rig to make some [G7] money

    For a [D7] ticket to the sweetest girl [G7] around

    [C] Pushing on past Lake Louise in all its [Dm] splendour

    Where the [Am] trees and Rockies touch the sky [G7] above

    I got [F] to British Columbia and [G7] heaven

    On your track I made it back to my true [C] love

    Canadian Pa[D7]ci[G7]fic

    Carry me 3,000 [C] miles

    Through the valleys and the [F] forests

    [G7] To the sunshine of her [C] smile

    Cross the plains and rugged [Dm] mountains

    [G7] Keep the wandering boy from [C] harm

    Canadian Pa[F]cific [G7] you took me to my baby's [C] arms

Hi Sarah,

Just wondering...I'm struggling with this part:

Canadian Pa-[D7]ci-[G7]fic
Carry me 3,000 [C] miles

The [D7] to [G7] is super quick and I can't get it to sound right (to me)

What would you think of this?:

Canadian Pa-[Dm]cific
[G7] Carry me 3,000 [C] miles
