 INTRO:  C C/b Am  (x2)

      C                 Am                   C               Am
 The fondest wish that ever I had since the day that I was weaned

        F  C        Em   Am           F       Em   Am
 Is to go back and walk again on the rocks of Merasheen

 C                  Am              C               Am
 I still recall the sad farewell I bid her on that day

       F   C       Em     Am    F        Em     Am
 When all upon a whaling ship I went to earn my pay

 Intro

 From out of Rose au Rue we sailed to hunt the big fish down,
 We sailed upon the ocean till we sailed the world around.
 With girls in every port of call I did go well astray    
 Forsaking her I left behind Back in Placentia Bay
 By the hard rocks, the rocky rocks The rocks of Merasheen

 BREAK:  F  Em  C  Am | F Em C Am | C  C/b Am

 Now in my old and aching age I think of her once more                
 Of how she fared while waiting for my knock upon her door
 What fate was hers I do not know but in my sleep Iíve seen
 her walking on the cliffs above the rocks of Merasheen 
 On the hard rocks, the rocky rocks, The rocks of Merasheen
 On the hard rocks, the dirty rocks The rocks of Merasheen

 INTRO, repeat to end
