"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: 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
