Farewell nova scotia

    A
The sun was sinking down in the west
    F#m
The birds were singing on every tree
     A      E
All nature seemed to be at rest
    F#m          D      C#m     F#m
But still there was no rest for me

Chorus:

     A
Farewell to Nova Scotia

The sea-bound coast
         F#m
may your mountains dark and dreary be
         A         E
For when I am far away

On the briny ocean tossed
          F#m          D
Will you ever heave a sigh
      C#m      F#m
and a wish for me

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

I have three brothers and they are at rest
Their arms are folded on their chests
But a poor, weary sailor the likes of me
Must be tossed and forgotten
On the deep, blue sea

If you put the chords all through the whole song it makes it much more appealing to those who scroll. Even without scrolling, until someone has played the song a number of times, it's awkward to keep having to look up at the first set of chords. Thanks.
