Lyrics and Chords:
-----------------

Verse 1:
-------

 Em9         '               D7/F#          G  '  '
If you're travelin' in the north country fair,
 Em9                '          D7/F#    G      '  '
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
 Em       '    C/G           G    '    '
Remember me to one who lives there.
 Em9     '    [C/G  D7/F#]   G    '    '
She once was a true love of mine.


Verse 2:
-------

 Em9         '               D7/F#      G  '  '
If you go when the snowflakes storm
 Em9                '          D7/F#    G  '  '
Where the rivers freeze as the summer ends
 Em       '    C/G           G    '    '
Please see that she has a coat so warm
 Em9     '    [C/G  D7/F#]   G    '    '
To keep her from the howling wind


Verse 3:
-------

 Em9         '               D7/F#      G  '  '
Please see that her hair hangs long
 Em9                '          D7/F#    G  '  '
It rolls, flows all down her dress
 Em       '    C/G           G    '    '
Please see for me that her hair's hanging long
 Em9     '    [C/G  D7/F#]   G    '    '
For that's the way I remember her best


Verse 4:
-------

 Em9         '               D7/F#      G  '  '
I'm wonderin' if she remembers me at all
 Em9                '          D7/F#    G  '  '
Many times I've hoped and prayed
 Em       '    C/G           G  '  '
In the darkness of my night,
 Em9     '    [C/G  D7/F#]   G  '  '
In the the brightness of my day


Verse 5:
-------

 Em9         '               D7/F#      G    '    '
If you're travellin' in the north the north country far
 Em9                '          D7/F#    G    '    '
Where the winds beat heavy on the borderline
 Em       '    C/G           G  '  '
Remember me to the one who lives there
 Em9     '    [C/G  D7/F#]   G  '  '
She once was a true love of mine
