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

          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


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


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


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
