EmCold February and all is not well
There's few will sleep easy this night
Am GDown on the dockside, grim silent men standing
Bm Am EmUnder the pale yellow light
Em Bm Em BmThere's scarcely a murmur and laughter there's none
Em Bm EmOf whispering there's barely a sound
Am GFor their thoughts are away, down there in the bay
Em Bm EmWhere it's said that the Lairdsfield is down
Gm FBleak February a cruel bitter wind
Eb Dm7Stirs up the black briny foam
Gm FOut there on the sea is no place to be
Eb Dm7 GmFar better by the fireside and warm
Gm Dm7 Gm AmBut not for the sailor the soft easy chair
Gm Dm GmHe's out there earning his bread
Cm BbBut tonight there are ten who'll work never again
Gm Dm GmCounted among the drowned dead
Dm CDark February a few flakes of snow
Bb Am7 ADrift over bowed heads on the stray
Dm CBy the breakwater side and along by the Gare
Bb Am DmThey wait for the first streaks of day
Gm Dm Gm AmAnd over the sand-dunes and over the bar
Gm Dm GmSee a few feet of keel nothing more
Dm CHeld fast in the sand with all of her hands
Bb A DmBarely two miles from the shore
Em DSad February and all is not well
C GThere's few will sleep easy this night
Am B7Down at the dockside, grim silent men standing
C Am EmUnder the pale yellow light
Em BmFor down there at Teesmouth
Em AmThe Lairdsfield is drowned
Em Bm EmAnd with her every man of her crew
Am GTen men who'll not see the springtime again
Em Bm EmNor yet see the cold winter through
