The Lakes Of Canada Chords
Originally by The Innocence Mission
but personally, I like Sufjan's cover better.
I tabbed it from this video that is filmed well
here is the guitar tab for the key he does it in the video
the second half of the lyrics is in banjo tab.
I just split the type of tab it is so you can have the full
lyrics and so I didnt have to put the full song up twice.

enjoy, this is a fun song to play.

Standard tuning and all, capo on 4 please.

F                   C
Look for me another day.
I feel that I could change,
I feel that I could change.
F                           C
There's a sudden joy that's like
a fish, a moving light;
I thought I saw it
F                       C
rowing on the lakes of Canada

            Dm                 C
Oh laughing man, what have you won?
              Am             F 
Don't tell me what cannot be done.
          Dm               C
My little mouth, my winter lungs,
              Am             F
don't tell me what can't be done.

Standard tuning and all, capo on 2 please.

C                     G 
Walking in the circle of a flashlight
        D                       Am 
someone starts to sing, to join in.
C                     G 
Talk of loneliness in quiet voices.
     D                          Am  
I am shy but you can reach me.
C                         G
Rowing on the lakes of Canada,
C                         G
Rowing on the lakes of Canada,

            C                  G 
Oh laughing man, what have you won?
              Em                 Am
Don't tell me what cannot be done.
            C                G
My little mouth, my winter lungs,
              Em                 Am
don't tell me what cannot be done.

Yeah, you did it.
Please let me know if you find errors.

About the artist behind The Lakes Of Canada Chords:

Sufjan Stevens (pronounced /ˈsuːfjɑːn/) (born July 1, 1975) is an American singer-songwriter and musician from Petoskey, Michigan. Stevens first began releasing his music on the Asthmatic Kitty label, a label formed by himself and his stepfather, starting with 2000 release A Sun Came. His 2005 album Illinois hit #1 in the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart.

Stevens is very experimental with his music and he has released albums of varying styles, from the electronica of Enjoy Your Rabbit and the lo-fi folk of Seven Swans to the symphonic instrumentation of Illinois and Christmas themed Songs for Christmas. Stevens makes use of a variety of instruments, often playing many of them himself on the same track,[1] and writes music in various different time signatures. He is considered part of the folk revival in indie pop, but his influences are very broad. His music has been likened to electronica[2] and the minimalism of Steve Reich.[3] Also, Stevens' music often has spiritual themes and many songs draw inspiration from Bible stories, most notably on Seven Swans.

Stevens has garnered much interest from the press for his "Fifty States Project",[4][5][6] his aim being to complete an album about each of the states of the US. Stevens has thus far completed two state records, Illinois and his home state record Michigan. Whether he will complete the project is subject to debate but the artist says he remains serious about its completion.[7] In interviews, Stevens has alluded to many different states as his next project, including Oregon, California and New Jersey, however it would appear that this is because he has not yet decided which state he will choose next.[8]
