    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]///
