Banks Of Newfoundland  Great Big Sea

Ye [Am]bully boys of Liverpool, and I'll h[G]ave you all b[Am]eware
W[Am]hen you sail on them packet ships,no d[G]ungaree jackets [Am]wear
But h[C]ave a big monkey j[Am]acket all r[C]eady to your [G]hand
For there b[Am]low some cold nor'westers on the [G]banks of Newfound[Am]land

Chorus:

We'll [C]scrape her and we'll [Am]scrub her,With [C]holy stone and s[G]and
For there b[Am]low some cold nor'westers on the [G]banks of Newfo[Am]undland

We had Jack Lynch from Ballynahinch,Mike Murphy and some more
an' I tell you b’ys, 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!"
