 "Banks Of Newfoundland"(Trad./Arr.GBS)
  From "Fortune's Favour"(2008)


  use a capo on the fifth fret

    Am                                 G            Am
 Ye bully boys of Liverpool, and I'll have you all beware
  Am                                    G               Am
 When you sail on them packet ships,no dungaree jackets wear
      C                 Am         C            (G)
 But have a big monkey jacket all ready to your hand
            Am                               G                Am
 For there blow some cold nor'westers on the banks of Newfoundland

 Chorus:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/g/great-big-sea/180051.html ]
       C                    Am             C               G
 We'll scrape her and we'll scrub her,With holy stone and sand
            Am                               G             Am
 For there blow some cold nor'westers on the banks of Newfoundland


 We had Jack Lynch from Ballynahinch,Mike Murphy and some more
 an' I tell you bys,  well they suffered like hell
 on their way to Baltimore
 They pawned their gear in Liverpool
 and they sailed as they did stand
 But there blow some cold nor'westers
 on the banks of Newfoundland

 Chorus

 Now the mate he did stand on the foc'sle head
 and loudly he did roar
 "Come rattle her in me lucky lads,
 You're bound for America's shore.
 Come wipe the blood off the dead man's face
 And haul or you'll be damned!"
 For there blow some cold nor'westers
 on the banks of Newfoundland

 Chorus...Am 

 So now we're off the hook me boys,
 and the land is white with snow
 and soon we'll see the pay table
 and we'll spend the night below
 And on the docks, come down in flocks,
 why,those pretty girls will say
 "It's snugger with me then out on the sea,
 on the banks of Newfoundland!"

 Chorus
