Hey Fitzie,
Here are three of them. I have included the youtube links I used to work out the lyrics/chords they were using.
By the way, did you know Hal Lone Pine was actually Harold Breau, Lenny Breau's father.

If somebody can send me the mp3 for To It And At It by Stompin' Tom, I'll do up the chords.



Prince Edward Island is Heaven to Me – Hal Lone Pine
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlCqeNswO18

[A] They talk about Texas, Ken-[D]-tucky and [A] Maine,
They [D] talk about [A] London, [B7] Paris and [E] Spain.
But [A] there's a little island, I [D] long there to [A] be.
[D] Prince Edward [A] Island is [E] heaven to [A] me.

[A] The shores are so pretty and the [D] fields are so [A] green,
The [D] roads are so [A] winding, with [B7] such pretty [E] scenes.
The [A] air is so pure and the [D] people so [A] gay,
[D] Prince Edward [A] Island , I'm [E] coming to [A] stay.

[A] There's swimming and hunting and [D] fishing gal-[A]-ore.
The [D] sun shines so [A] bright on its [B7] long golden [E] shore.
The Lord made this island for [D] all men to [A] see;
[D] Prince Edward [A] Island is [E] heaven to [A] me.

Break: follows pattern of line just finished ([D] Prince Edward [A] Island is [E] heaven to [A] me)

[A] There’s thousands of Islands in [D] this land of [A] ours
Like [D] dots on the [A] ocean, or [B7] dew on the [E] flowers
A [A] touch of God’s great hand this [D] Island must [A] be
[D] Prince Edward [A] Island is [E] heaven to [A] me.



Farewell To Nova Scotia
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rfw99vrBaBA

Capo 2nd fret

[G] The sun was setting in the west
The [Em] birds were singing on every tree
All [G] nature [D] seemed inclined for to rest
But [Em] still there was no rest for me

CHORUS
Fare-[G]-well to Nova Scotia, the seabound coast
Let your [Em] mountains dark and dreary be
For when [G] I am far a-[D]-way on the briny ocean tossed
Will you [Em] ever heave a sigh and a wish for me


I [G] grieve to leave my native land
I [Em] grieve to leave my comrades all
And my [G] parents, [D] whom I held so dear
And the [Em] bonny, bonny lass that I do adore

Repeat Chorus

The [G] drums they do beat and the wars do alarm
The [Em] captain calls, we must obey
So [G] farewell, fare-[D]-well to Nova Scotia's charm
For it's [Em] early in the morning, I'll be far, far away

Repeat Chorus

[Em] Will you ever heave a sigh and a wish for me
[Em] Will you ever heave a sigh and a wish for me…
[Em] Will you ever heave a sigh and a wish for me



Come ‘Round Any Old Time – Harry Hibbs
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPYhK8YXXlc

[A] Come 'round any old time,
Make yourself at [E] home;
Put your feet on the mantle shelf,
[B7] Open the cupboard and [E] help your-[E7]-self.
[A] I don't care if your friends,
Have left you all a-[E]-lone;
Rich or poor, just knock on the door,
And make yourself at [A] home.

Break: follows pattern of verse

[A] Come 'round any old time,
Make yourself at [E] home;
Put your feet on the mantle shelf,
[B7] Open the cupboard and [E] help your-[E7]-self.
[A] I don't care if your friends,
Have left you all a-[E]-lone;
Rich or poor, just knock on the door,
And make yourself at [A] home.
[E] Rich or poor, just knock on the door,
And make yourself at [A] home.

You are welcome Fitzie. I still use that email account from time-to-time, but not as much as my mail.com account.

Thanks for the mp3 sparky.
I thought I had better get to it so I got at it...

To It and At It – Stompin’ Tom Connors
The little instrumental part at the start and after each chorus follows the pattern of the last line in the chorus (You [E] won’t get to it to get [A] at it again)

[A] There's a rainbow in Toronto
Where the Maritimers are [E] bold
They [A] always get a potfull
But they never get a [E] pot of [A] gold

Chorus:
[A] But they're to it and at it at it and to it
You gotta tune your attitude [E] in
If you [A] don't get at it [D] when you get to it
You [E] won't get to it to get [A] at it again
You [E] won't get to it to get [A] at it again

[A] A guy from old New Brunswick
He couldn't even pay his [E] rent
We [A] don't know how he travelled
But we all know [E] where he [A] went

[A] He was to it and at it at it and to it
You gotta tune your attitude [E] in
If you [A] don't get at it [D] when you get to it
You [E] won't get to it to get [A] at it again
You [E] won't get to it to get [A] at it again

[A] A girl from old spud Island
Old Potato [E] lips
She [A] married a Newfoundlander
And they lived on [E] Fish and [A] Chips

[A] But they were to it and at it at it and to it
You gotta tune your attitude [E] in
If you [A] don't get at it [D] when you get to it
You [E] won't get to it to get [A] at it again
You [E] won't get to it to get [A] at it again

[A] A guy from Nova Scotia
He can't afford the [E] train-
He's [A] sittin on a streetcar
But he's eastbound [E] just the [A] same

[A] He's to it and at it at it and to it
You gotta tune your attitude [E] in
If you [A] don't get at it [D] when you get to it
You [E] won't get to it to get [A] at it again
You [E] won't get to it to get [A] at it again

[A] A Frenchman from the Gaspe
Said "Frogs don't like [E] smog!"
So he [A] hopped in a swamp of lilies
Where he lives in a [E] hollow [A] log

[A] But he's to it and at it at it and to it
You gotta tune your attitude [E] in
If you [A] don't get at it [D] when you get to it
You [E] won't get to it to get [A] at it again
You [E] won't get to it to get [A] at it again

[A] A guy from old Cape Breton
So lonesome he got [E] stoned
He [A] crawled into a suitcase
And somebody [E] mailed him [A] home.

[A] But he's to it and at it at it and to it
You gotta tune your attitude [E] in
If you [A] don't get at it [D] when you get to it
You [E] won't get to it to get [A] at it again
But he's to it and at it at it and to it
You gotta tune your attitude [E] in
If you [A] don't get at it [D] when you get to it
You [E] won't get to it to get [A] at it again
You [E] won't get to it to get [A] at it again … [D]… [E]… [A]///
