As with many Great Big Sea songs, the trick is to master the strumming
patterns.  It is difficult to tab out strums, but listening to the song
is definetly the best way to go.  The Intro and first verse consists
mainly of hard downstrokes (listen to the song for guidance).
Note the little pull-off thing happening with the D in some places.
Watch it though ... the song really begins to pick up by verse 2 ...
This is one of the best bands I've ever heard ... and a great song! God
Bless you East Coast musicians - your music is fantastic!

Intro: (repeat the following 4 times, lyrics begin on final D of intro)

                   (...our schooner ...)
