Cathie Ryan - Liberty's Sweet Shore

Capo 2

[Intro]
C

[Verse 1]
               G/B       F   C
In this fading light the mainland
               G/B    F   G
Lies vague out on the horizon
  C          G/B         F G  F
A lighthouse beaming its welcome
   Dm             G               C     F G
To Gross Isle and liberty’s sweet shore

[Verse 2]
    C                  G/B            F   C
For three months and a day we’ve been sailing
                    G/B            F    G
Around pinnacles of ice we’ve been steering
           C   G/B       F G  F
Storms and Nor’easters a raging
     Dm          G               C     F G
To deliver us to liberty’s sweet shore

[Chorus]
F                    C
Sailing to liberty’s sweet shore
F          Dm7       G
Sailing to liberty’s sweet shore
   F
We left all we know
        Am             C
To this new life we’ll go
F          G         C             F
Sailing to liberty’s sweet shore

[Verse 3]
    C        G/B          F  C
Two pounds a head for the passage
              G/B         F   G
With ease our landlord surrendered
    C               G/B         F G  F
And wiped his hands clean as he tendered
       Dm          G              C  F G
From a distance he watched us all go

[Verse 4]
   C                G/B       F  C
We sailed the fifth day of September
                 G/B           F   G
Two hundred poor souls crammed together
         C            G/B            F G  F
From our families and homeland we’re severed
    Dm             G            C    F G
The clothes on our backs all we own

[Chorus]
F                    C
Sailing to liberty’s sweet shore
F          Dm7       G
Sailing to liberty’s sweet shore
   F
We left all we know
        Am             C
To this new life we’ll go
F          G         C             F
Sailing to liberty’s sweet shore

[Verse 5]
      C             G/B          F  C
We’re bowed down in sickness and hunger
                 G/B        F  G
We pray for the hand of our maker
   C         G/B       F G  F
My child was lost to a fever
  Dm                 G          C     F G
A quick prayer, then hauled overboard

[Verse 6]
C         G/B            F   C
Oceans of tears they are falling
               G/B         F   G
In hope and despair both recalling
        C           G/B               F G  F
Now the gulls of St Lawrence they are calling
     Dm         G               C    F G
Soon Quebec and liberty’s sweet shore

[Chorus]
F                    C
Sailing to liberty’s sweet shore
F          Dm7       G
Sailing to liberty’s sweet shore
   F
We left all we know
        Am             C
To this new life we’ll go
F          G         C             F
Sailing to liberty’s sweet shore

[Chorus]
F                    C
Sailing to liberty’s sweet shore
F          Dm7       G
Sailing to liberty’s sweet shore
   F
We left all we know
        Am             C
To this new life we’ll go
F          G         C             F  C
Sailing to liberty’s sweet shore
