PETERSON, ANDREW - ALASKA OR BUST ALASKA OR BUST

Copyright: 2001
CDTitle: CLEAR TO VENUS
Year: 2001
                                   This is a pretty sparse version of the song, but it will give you an idea. The timing is 3/4, but I always end up playing it in 4/4. Hope this is of some help to someone.

Alaska or Bust
(verse 1)
G Am
Margie, won't you listen to an old man's
Bm C
wish? They say it's mighty pretty in Alaska
G Am
My daddy used to talk about those deep-sea
Bm
fish So there's something, darling, that I
C G C
want to ask you So don't you turn me down
G C
Don't start now
G
In the morning we would listen to the
Am Bm
cattle calling Lowing in the land of
C G
Okechobee Where it's flatter than the
Am
cardboard on the carport floor And the
Bm C
cattails seem to wave just like they know
F D
me Ah, but Enoch in the tackle shop Goes on G
about the salmon caught The time he and his B/G C2
brother sailed to Juneau

(chorus)
C D C
So get in, I'll do the driving Your bag's
G
already packed and in the truck So Margie,
C D Am
get in, put down those dishes The town will Bm C C#/C D
see us go if we're in luck So come on, it's
(pause)G C G C
Alaska or bust

(verse 2)
G
I've been holding down this farm that daddy
Am Bm
left me, darlin' The kids have married off
C G
and moved away And the doctor says I'm
Am Bm
healthy for an old man dyin' I'm well
C
enough to sieze a few more days

(chorus)
C D C
So get in, I'll do the driving Your bag's
G
already packed and in the truck So Margie
C D
get in, these bones are dry I've been
Am Bm C C#/C
running but the cancer's catching up So
D G C G C
come on, it's Alaska or bust

(verse 3)
G
There were days when I imagined that the
Am Bm
clouds were mountains Towering above the
C G
rolling ocean And I was sailing on my
Am
tractor Turning hay out in the pasture
Bm
Catching salmon of my own while I was
C
mowing

(last chorus)
C D C
So get in, I'll do the driving Your bag's
G
already packed and in the truck So Margie
C E
get in, there's not much time I've been
Am Bm C
running but the cancer's catching up The
Am Bm C C#/C
town will see us go if we're in luck So
D G C G
come on, it's Alaska or bust Alaska or bust
C G C G
So don't you turn me down Dont start now
