Intro: G,  Bm,  C,  G,  G,  G,  G,  G


Chorus 1: Bob Dylan:
-------------------

          Bm               C             G
If you're travelin' in the north country fair,
G                   Bm           C     G
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
G        Bm    C             G
Remember me to one who lives there.
G        Bm    C            G
She once was a true love of mine.


Verse 1: Johnny Cash:
--------------------

G              Bm        C          G
Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
G               Bm        C        G
If it rolls and flows all down her breast.
G              Bm        C          G
Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
G          Bm      C          G
That's the way I remember her best.


Verse 2: Bob Dylan:
------------------

G            Bm          C          G
Well, if you go when the snowflakes storm,
G               Bm         C      G
When the rivers freeze and summer ends,
G                 Bm    C       G
Please see if she has a coat so warm,
   G        Bm       C       G
To keep her from the howlin' winds.


Chorus 2: Johnny Cash & Bob Dylan:
---------------------------------

          Bm               C             G
If you're travelin' in the north country fair,
G                   Bm           C     G
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
G        Bm    C             G
Remember me to one who lives there.
G        Bm    C            G
She once was a true love of mine.


Instrumental: G, Bm, C, G, G, Bm, C, G, G


Chorus 2: Johnny Cash & Bob Dylan:
---------------------------------

          Bm               C             G
If you're travelin' in the north country fair,
G                   Bm           C     G
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
G        Bm    C             G
Remember me to one who lives there.
G        Bm    C            G
She once was a true love of mine.


Outro: Johnny Cash & Bob Dylan:
------------------------------

A true love of mine
A true love of mine
A true love of mine
A true love of mine
A true love of mine
A true love of mine
