Farewell To Nova Scotia Misc. Traditional
This song has been done by many artists before, but I haven't been able to find the anywhere. But I got some and figured I would share them with all of you! The chord pattern for the first verse is repeated for all of the verses as well as the Play it loud and proud. ____________________ INTRO G VERSE 1 G The sun was setting in the west Em The birds were singing on every tree G D All nature seemed inclined for to rest Em C Em But still there was no rest for me CHORUS Farewell to Nova Scotia, you seabound coast Let your mountains dark and dreary be For when I am far away on the briny ocean tossed Will you ever heave a sigh or a wish for me? VERSE II I grieve to leave my native land I grieve to leave my comrades all And my parents, whom I held so dear And my bonny, bonny lassie that I do adore Chorus VERSE III The drums do beat and the wars do alarm My captain calls, I must obey So farewell, farewell to Nova Scotia's charm For it's early in the morning, I'll be far, far away Chorus VERSE IV I have three brothers and they are at rest Their arms are folded on their breasts But a poor and simple sailor just like me Must be tossed and driven on the dark, blue sea ______________________ Travis Hatcher
