D Riff x2

D Riff
Weather sailed from northern Canada 
D Riff
Due in before the afternoon is over
G Riff                   B  C
Brown cows in the fields
D Riff
Eating their way slowly through the clover

D Riff x2

And the canopy of apple trees before us
Symmetrical and pure as a pagoda
G Riff                                    B  B
Me and Lee Chong from Chicago in a U-Haul
D                               Pre-Chorus
Headed out through western Minnesota

Headed for the islands x2

D A7 G A (B string pluck 7 then 5) D 

D Riff

Our load is heavy, and you can hear it shifting
Say what you like, I'm never gonna stop
G Riff                               B C
Everyone will eat when we've arrive
White apple blossoms soften up the blacktop

D Riff x2

Two days from now we'll get to where we're going
The western sky will pitch correct its whining
G Riff                               B C
Our cargo's gonna spill out from the cabin
D                                   Post-Chorus
And rub its eyes and see the silver lining, yeah yeah

Headed for the islands x2

On the second "islands" hold D and then end or play the outro (I'll make a tab when I have time)
