The Hockey Song
Stompin' Tom Connors (1973)


4/4 | T3 - D u T4 - D u |
      1    2 & 3    4 &

Intro
| [C] | [C] | [C] | [C]

Hel- [C] lo out there we're on the air, it's hockey night to- [G7] night
[G7] Tension grows the whistle blows and the puck goes down the [C] ice
The [C] goalie jumps and the players bump, and the fans all go in- [F] sane
[F] Someone roars [C] Bobby scores at the [G7] good old hockey [C↓] game

Chorus
[G7↓] Oh! The [C] good old hockey game
Is the [C] best game you can [G7] name
And the [G7] best game you can name
Is the [G7] good old hockey [C] game | [C] | [C] | [C]

Announcer over top of the above Cs: "2nd period!"

Where [C] players dance with skates that flash, the home team trails be- [G7] hind
But they [G7] grab the puck, and go bursting up, and they're down across the [C] line
They [C] storm the crease like bumblebees, they travel like a burning [F] flame
We [F] see them slide, the [C] puck inside, it's a [G7] one one hockey [C↓] game

Chorus
[G7↓] Oh! The [C] good old hockey game
Is the [C] best game you can [G7] name
And the [G7] best game you can name
Is the [G7] good old hockey [C] game | [C] | [C] | [C]

Announcer over top of the above Cs: "3rd period, last game of the playoffs too!"

[C] Take me where those hockey players face off down the [G7] rink
And the [G7] Stanley cup is all filled up for the champs who win the [C] drink
Now the [C] final flick of a hockey stick and one gigantic [F] scream
The [F] puck is in the [C] home team wins the [G7] good old hockey [C↓] game

Chorus
[G7↓] Oh! The [C] good old hockey game
Is the [C] best game you can [G7] name
And the [G7] best game you can name
Is the [G7] good old hockey [C↓] game

[G7↓] Oh! The [C] good old hockey game
Is the [C] best game you can [G7] name
And the [G7] best game you can name
Is the [G7] good_old_ [G7] hock_ey [C] game [C↓] [G7↓] [C↓]
"He shoots he scores!"

4/4 | d - D u - u d u |
      1   2 &   & 4 &

Be- [G] neath it's snowy [Bm] mantle cold and [Am] clean | [Am]
The [D7] unborn grass lies | waiting for its | coat to turn to [G] green
The [G] snowbird sings the [Bm] song he always [Am] sings |
And | [D7] speaks to me of | flowers that will | bloom again in [G] spring

When [G] I was young my [Bm] heart was young then [Am] too | [Am]
And any [D7] thing that it would | tell me that's the | thing that I would [G] do
But [G] now I feel such [Bm] emptiness with- [Am] in | [Am]
For the [D7] thing that I want | most in life's the | thing that I can't [G] win

[G] Spread your tiny [Bm] wings and fly a- [Am] way | [Am]
And [D7] take the snow back | with you where it | came from on that [G] day
The [G] one I love for- [Bm] ever is un- [Am] true | [Am]
And [D7] if I could you | know that I would | fly away with [G] you

The [G] breeze along the [Bm] river seems to [Am] say | [Am]
That he'll [D7] only break my | heart again should | I decide to [G] stay
So little [G] snowbird take me [Bm] with you when you [Am] go | [Am]
To that [D7] land of gentle | breezes where the | peaceful waters [G] flow

[G] Spread your tiny [Bm] wings and fly a- [Am] way | [Am]
And [D7] take the snow back | with you where it | came from on that [G] day
The [G] one I love for- [Bm] ever is un- [Am] true | [Am]
And [D7] if I could you | know that I would | fly away with [G] you

Yeah [D7] if I could you | know that I would [Am] fly ...   | [Am]
[D7] away with [G] you | [G] | [G] | [G↓]

[G] On this [D] winter's night with [G] you [D]

[G] The smoke is [D] rising in the [Em] shadows over- [C] head
[G] My glass is [D] almost [G] empty [D]

[G] Where webs of [D] snow are [G] drifting [G]

Chorus
If [G] I could [D] only [C] have you [D] near
[Bm] To breathe a [Em] sigh or [C] two [D]

But | [F] sometimes, |   we remember our | bedrooms,
| [F] and our [Am] parent's | [Dm] bedrooms,

| [F] Then we [Am] think of our | [Dm] parents,
well | [A] what ever [Bb] happened to | [F] them?!

Chorus
You change | [F] all the lead      
| [F] sleepin' | in my head,
| [Dm] ...as the | day grows dim
| [Dm] ...I hear you | sing a golden | [C] hymn.  
the | [C7] song I've been trying to | [C6] say.   | [C5]

Chorus
| [F] ...Puri- | fy the colors, | purify my [Am] mind.
