First Tracks Cover
(bass intro)
[A7] Clear blue [D9] sky, [A7] cold chilly [D9] air
To-[A7]-day’s not a [D9] day to be [Gm] riding [E9] on the [D9] chair
[A7] I don’t [D9] mind hiking [A7] to the [D9] peak
[A7] Don’t even [D9] try if you’re [Gm] lazy [E9] or you’re [D9] weak
If you [E] got the [G] cheese and can a-[E]-fford to [G] fly
Take the [E] helicopter [G] and your rich [E] ass [B] to the [A] sky
But if [E] you are [G] broke or your girl [E] holds you [G] back
Climb [E] up on [G] foot with your [E] boards [B] and your [A] pack
[A7] Gather your [D9] friends, you know they [A7] got your [D9] back
[A7] It’s so [D9] cool hanging [Gm] with the [E9] wolf [D9] pack
Climb [A7] single [D9] file, boot pack [A7] stairs to the [D9] top
If [A7] you’re in [D9] shape there’s no [Gm] need to [E9] ever [D9] stop
[E] Buckle up, [G] drop in, [E] double grab the [G] free fall
[E] Stick the [G] landing, [E] ow! [B] Every [A] time
[E] It’s the [G] first run, you gotta [E] go for [G] speed
[E] First tracks [G] give me just a [E] what [B] I [A] need
(bridge - harmonica)

Turn if you want to, stop if you need to
But there’s no reason to ever slow down
Jump if you like it, back flip if you need it
Do the crazy things you never do in bounds
First tracks are waiting, just in front of me
A hidden painting only I can see
I’m just trying to keep up with my shadow
We’re just out here giving nature a show
I’m just surfing, up on a mountain
Yea just surfing, without the sea
Big bottom turn with a deep cut back
My heart’s pounding as I hear the lip crack
I’m on fire as I fly through the trees
Carving turns where ever I please
See the bottom coming up fast
That’s ok, because I got First Tracks
(bridge - harmonica)
Clear blue sky, cold chilly air
Today’s not a day to be riding on the chair
I don’t mind hiking to the peak
Don’t even try if you’re lazy or weak
Buckle up, drop in, double grab the free fall
Stick the landing, ow! Every time
It’s the first run, you gotta go for speed
First tracks give me just what I need
Turn if you want to, stop if you need to
But there’s no reason to ever slow down
Jump if you like it, flip if you need it
Do the crazy things you never do in bounds
I’m on fire as I fly through the trees
I carve turns where ever I please
See the bottom coming up fast
That’s ok, because I got First Tracks
(bridge - harmonica)
