Manitoba Blues

A

Up in Manitoba, don’t know where to go

A

Going back to T.O. down in Ontario

A                   D                                     A

I’ve been defeated, in my western quest

.            E                                                                  A

Gonna head back to Toronto, place I love the best

 

Left a factory job, spent my only dough

On a third class ticket out of Ontario

I can’t believe it, that they would treat me so

Stopped me at the station, said that I can’t go

 

.               D                                            A

.     Manitoba, you make me feel so blue

.              E                                     A

.     Manitoba, what’s a man to do

 

Don’t know where to go now, can’t afford a room

I’m stuck here in this flop house with a mop and a broom

I feel so cheated, it makes me want to scream

Life here is a nightmare, far from the western dream

 

Spent the night in prison, charged with vagrancy

Bulldogs and the bedbugs kept on biting me

I’ve been unseated, from my native home

Never will I ramble, never more to roam

 

They dragged me down to skid row, told me where to go

Threw me on a freight train back to Ontario

I’ve been mistreated, I’ve been misunderstood

Left behind the sorrow, tried to make it good

 

Up in Manitoba, don’t know where to go

Going back to T.O. down in Ontario

I’ve been defeated, in my western quest

Gonna head back to Toronto, place I love the best

Gonna head back to Toronto, nevermind the west

Gonna head back to Toronto, oh what a mess
