Does anyone play this and have chords handy? It's a great tune, and I'll probably try to work the changes out for myself, but wouldn't mind another version to cross reference with.

E            A    E
Well, it's a wild northland
B                        E
Velvet green isle with a sky blue ring
           A    E
Hey it's a wild northland
  B                      E
A cold steel trap with a frozen spring

           A        E
Well, he's cold and tired
          B             E
He's been travelin' all day
         A        E              B     E
You know Juneau's just a hundred miles away


And he found his gold
He dug it from that ground
But today's he's lost, tomorrow night found

Chorus

It was just last spring
He found his golden gates
Now his greed kept a tellin' him that winter would wait

But now his autumn's gone
And the skies are gray
Lord the land is all white, he can't find his way

(2nd Chorus)
Baby it's a wild northland
He knew she'd never marry him when he was poor
And it's a wild northland
And get down on your knees and dig a little more

Chorus
