Fisherman's Wife  Steeleye Span

Fisherman's Wife
Steeleye Span
(capo 1st fret)
[G]a' the week your man's aw[C]a'[G]
[G]and a' the week you bide your l[C]ane[G]
[G]a' the time you're waiting [C]for[Am]
[G]the minute that he's comin' ho[C]me[G]
[G]ye ken whit why he has tae wor[F]k[G]
[G]ye ken the hours he has tae ke[F]ep[G]
[G]and yet it's making you angry when[F] [C]
ye se[G]e him just [C]come home tae [Am]sleep[G]
through the months and through the years
while you're bringing up the bairns
your man's awa' tae here and there
followin' the shoals of herring
and when he's back there's nets tae mend
you've maybe got a score or twa
and when they're done he'll rise and say
wife it's time i was awa'
work and wait and dree your weird
pin yer faith in herrin' sales
and oftimes lie awake at nicht
in fear and dread of winter gales
but men maun work tae earn their breid
and men maun sweat to gain their fee
and fishermen will aye gang oot
as long as fish swim in the sea
a' the week your man's awa'
and a' the week you bide your lane
a' the time you're waiting for
the minute that he's comin' home
ye ken whit why he has tae work
ye ken the hours he has tae keep
and yet it's making you angry when
ye see him just come home tae sleep
Sorry but when I submit my tab the chords go to the wrong positions in the song. I hope
get along with it, anyway. The lyrics are written in an Olde English style to make it
and look intresting. So have fun with it. steven
