Great Big Sea - Barque in the Harbour
    Tabbed by Owen Tosh

Am  G  Am  G
Am  G  Am  G

        Am                G          G           Am
From a barque in the harbour I went roaming on shore
            C       G              Am           G
And stepped into a pub where I was oft times before
    C         Am            G          Am
And as I was sitting and enjoying my glass
      Am                G     G             Am  G  Am  G
Who chanced to walk in but a young Spanish lass

     Am              G             G          Am
She sat down beside me and kept squeezing my hand
        C              G          Am           G
Saying Sir you're a stranger not long to this land
          C            Am                G               Am
Will you roam, Johnny Sailor, would you roam along with me
    Am                  G      G        Am  G
To some lonesome spot where nobody can see

               C               G               Am             G
    Don't you leave me Johnny Sailor were the words she did cry
     Am            G        C         G
    Waving and weeping and wiping her eyes
      C             G           Am           G
    When you reach home in your own Newfoundland
          Am               G                G            Am  G  Am  G
    Think of the young Spaniard who kept squeezing your hand

    Am           G        G          Am
I quickly consented with her for to roam
     C           G         Am          G
She lived by herself in a neat little home
          C               Am           G              Am
She was brisk, plump and jolly and her age scare nineteen
         Am              G      G         Am  G  Am  G
And the name of that maiden I think was Irene

     Am               G         G            Am
One fine summer's morning our ship, she set sail
     C           G              Am         G
And down by the seashore lovely Irene she came
        C          Am              G         Am
Waving her pocket hankerchief and wiping her eyes
       Am                 G            G              Am  G
Don't leave me Johnny Sailor were the words she did cry

      Am                G         G              Am
I'll give you farewell love on a fine summer's breeze
     C             G                   Am          G
But love don't forget me when you're crossing the sea
      C           Am            G            Am
And when you are married and enjoying your bride
      Am               G       G           Am
Think on the young maiden who lay by your side
