Dave Gunning - Prince Of Pictou




INTRO: Em  D  C  Em  D  C  G  Am C D

       G                C         D
By the lights of Pictou Harbour
         G                    C       D
A lonely prince stands on the shore
       G               C       D
Left behind across the ocean
            G                  C     D
To hide the ways of George the IV


          G               C        D
A lantern flickers in the hallway
              G              C    D
A clock burns time from afar 
           G        C                  D
Dressed to kill but dying fast inside
             G               C       D
He makes his way down to the bar


             G            C         D
He tells the story of his old life
     G                C   D
To a wall of disbelief 
          G             C                          D
He buys a drink for the girls of Creighton Street
               G            C    
And spends the fortune of a King


CHORUS:
          Em       C               D
There are diamonds buried in these waters
         G    C             D
There is gold hidden in the hills
          Em           C               D
There are secrets that lie beneath the surface
      Bm        Am     D9        Em
Of an unwelcome son, a forgotten Prince


INSTRUMENTAL: Em  D  C  D  ?  D


           G               C        D
He sits in darkness at the tavern
               G               C     
And counts the years away from home
             D              Bm             C                        D
He lifts his glass, makes a toast from his worn out barroom chair
           G                  C    D
"Here's to life upon the throne"


BRIDGE:
                     G
Here's a toast to my father
  Am                            G
I wonder, does he ever drink to me?
  Bb                            Am  
I wonder, does he ever think of me? 


INSTRUMENTAL: 


    D       G       C          D
The cold of January took him
       G                 C    D
At the age of thirty-three
                 Bm        C                   D
They carried him up to the top of Laurel Hill
           G              C      D
To let him rest among the trees


            G           C          D
And all the politicians gathered
           G                  C   
To pay the mystery man his due
      D                   G                     C                    D
And although they'd never said "Hello", they've come to say goodbye
        G                 C     D
Just in case the story's true


CHORUS:
          Em       C               D
There are diamonds buried in these waters
         G    C             D
There is gold hidden in the hills
          Em           C               D
There are secrets that lie beneath the surface
      Bm        Am     D9        Em
Of an unwelcome son, a forgotten Prince
