Polly on the Shore Fairport Convention (Nine) By Marcel Veltman How many British folk traditionals are there about that promising young man who becomes a pirate and then leads a short and wretched life before suffering a cruel death? This is one of them. I could only figure out the basic chords, however, and not the beautifull guitar part as it was played by Jerry Donahue on the original recording. C G Am Come all you wild young men C F G And a warning take by lead C F C/D G Never lead your single life astray C G Am Or into bad company As I myself have done Being all in the month of may When I was pressed by a sea captain A privateer to tray To the East Indies we were bound To plunder the region main And it's many a brave and a gally and ship We sent to a watery grave Off a freeport we did steer Our provisions to renew When we did spy a bold man of war sailing three feet toward too And she fired in cross our bow Heave through and don't refuse Surrender now into our command Or else your lives you'll lose And our decks they were splattered with blood And our canons did loudly roar And broadside and broadside a long time we laid Until we could fire no more C D G And a thousand times I quested myself again C G Am For the love of me Polly on the shore (Instrumental break. Ominous sounds by Jerry on the Tele, Swarb' on the strings and Pegg on the bass, with a slow and steady basis laid bij Dave the drums and Trevor on acoustic. Do try this at home) She's a tall and a slender girl With a dark and a golden eye And here am I am bleeding on the deck And for us we say must lie And farewell me family and friends Likewise my Polly too I would never have sailed the salt sea wide If I had been ruled by you And a thousand times I saw myself again For the love of me Polly on the shore
