FAREWELL TO NOVA SCOTIA  Misc. Country and Western


          The [G]sun was setting [Bm]in the west
          The [Em]birds were [C]singing on [Em}every tree
          All [G]nature [D]seemed inclined for a rest
          But [Em]still there was no rest [Am]for [Em]me

CHORUS:
          Fare[G]well to Nova Scotia,the [Bm]sea-bound coast
          Let your [Em]mountains [C]dark and [Em]dreary be
          For when [G]I am far a[D]way on the briny ocean tossed
          Will you [Em]ever heave a sigh and a wish [Am]for [Em]me

REPEAT CHORUS

I grieve to leave my native land
I grieve to leave my comrades all
And my parents whom I held so dear
And the bonny bonny lass that I do adore

REPEAT CHORUS

The drums they do beat and the wars do alarm
The captains call.we must obey
So farewell,farewell to Nova Scotia's charms
For its early in the morning and I an far far away

REPEAT CHORUS

I have three brothers and that are at rest
Their arms are folded on their breasts
But a poor simple sailor just like me
Must be tossed and driven on the dark blue sea

REPEAT CHORUS
