[Intro]
F   Bb

[Verse]
FWhen the wind's away and the wave away
Bb Eb FThat crazy old fool will go down on the bay
Bb EbDodging the ledges and setting his gear
Bb F BbAnd come back when the wind drives him in
[Chorus]
Eb BbBut he knows full well the fishing is done
Eb Bb FHis credit's all gone and the winter is come
Bb Cm EbBut as sure as the tide will rise and run
Bb F Bb F BbHe'll go back on the bay again
[Verse]
FWhen the snow is down on the Western Bay
Bb Eb FThat fool will go running the Fiddler's Ground
Bb EbHauling his gear in the trough of the sea
Bb F Bb Bb7As if he'd no mind of his own
[Chorus]
Eb BbYet he knows full well the fishing is done
Eb Bb FHis credit's all gone and the winter is come
Bb Cm EbBut as sure as the tide will rise and run
Bb F Bb F BbHe'll go back on the bay again
[Verse]
FWell, his father's gone, and his brothers are gone
Bb Eb FAnd still he goes down on the dark of the moon
Bb EbRowing the dory and setting the twine
Bb F Bb Bb7And it won't even pay for his time
[Instrumental] Eb Bb Eb Bb Bb Cm Eb Bb F Bb [Verse]
FWhen the wind's away and the wave away
Bb Eb FOur children go down on the morning sun
Bb EbThey go rowing their little boats out on the tide
Bb F Bb Bb7And they'll follow their foolish old man
[Verse]
Eb BbWell, you blind old fool, your children are gone
Eb Bb FAnd you never would tell 'gm the fishing was done
Bb Cm EbTheir days were numbered the day they were born
Bb F BbThe same as their foolish old man
