 Intro:| D |

    D                 G         A   D
 We were far from the shores of England,
 D            G             A
 Far from our children and wives
    G        D           A       D
 To play our hand in the Newfoundland
           D         G      A
 where the wind cuts like a knife
         D            G         A  D
 we were far from the shores of England


    D          D         A   D
 We shipped on board the Maryanne
    D      G      A
 to find a better life
        G       D         A  D
 and we walked across the water 
          G        D      A
 when she broke up on the ice
    D     D        A    D
 we came ashore in Carbonear 
  D            G      A
 with nothing but our rights
       G        D    A     D
 and I wondered if I e'er again
  D           G      A
 would see my London Lights 


 D                    G         A    D
 We were far from the shores of England,
 D            G             A
 Far from our children and wives
    G        D           A      D
 To play our hand in the Newfoundland
           G         D      A
 where the wind cuts like a knife
         D            G         A  D
 we were far from the shores of England


    D         D     A       D
 We spend our days amid the waves
         D      G        A
 working water, hook and twine
      G      D          A         D
 we'd go for weeks with blistered cheeks
         D       G      A
 waiting for the sun to shine
        D           D        A    D
 but as long as the sky hold over us
    D        G         A
 we will not taste the brine
           G         D            A       D
 and we'll curse the cod with the fear of god
       D       G     A
 as we haul in every line


 D                    G         A    D
 We were far from the shores of England,
 D            G             A
 Far from our children and wives
    G        D           A      D
 To play our hand in the Newfoundland
           D         G      A
 where the wind cuts like a knife
         D            G         A  D
 we were far from the shores of England,
 D            G      A
 far from our native soil
    G       D           A        D
 to chase a wish,and to hunt the fish,
     D      G        A
 and on the rocks to toil
         D            G         A  D
 we were far from the shores of England


 Break: |D G A D|x2 

        D       D         A  D
 Should we find fortune's favour,
     D         G        A
 and be spared from the gale
         G        D      A  D
 we will live off honest labour
          D         G      A
 with our hearts as big as sails
     D           D         A    D
 but if I should die don't bury me
    D        G      A
 or leave me to the sea
      G       D          A     D
 just send my bones back to my home
          D      G      A
 where my spirit can be free


 D                    G         A   D
 We were far from the shores of England,
 D            G            A
 Far from our children and wives
    G        D           A       D
 To play our hand in the Newfoundland
           D         G      A
 where the wind cuts like a knife
         D            G         A  D
 we were far from the shores of England,
 D            G      A
 far from our native soil
    G       D           A        D
 to chase a wish,and to hunt the fish,
     D      G        A
 and on the rocks to toil
         D            G         A  D
 we were far from the shores of England
