Great Big Sea - French Shore


C                       G           C
When I was a young man, just barely 14 
F                     C
Craving adventure and lore 
F                       C
I boarded a clipper me dad was a skipper 
G                       C            C2
and sailed it along the French shore ya, 
F               G              C
we sailed all along the French shore 

What beautiful vessels were sailing back then 
Ah, bound for the north Labrador 
It's over that reason they came here that season 
To sail all along the French shore ya 
To sail all along the French shore 

On each ship a maiden was hired to cook 
A beautiful girl to adore so young and cavorting 
All ready for courting while sailing along the French shore ya, 
While sailing along the French shore 

Being too young for courting I soon did decide 
To spy on the lovers on shore I spied on a couple 
So loving and supple, while sailing along the French shore ya, 
While sailing along the French shore 

Their actions peculiar appeared to me then 
but now their not funny no more 
they were huggin and kissin' oh what ive been missin, 
while sailing along the French shore ya, 
while sailing along, sailing along, while sailing along the French shore 

That couple has children now married I know 
You see they're not young anymore 
Yet still they don't know how I witnessed the show 
That they played all along the French shore ya, 
That they played all along the French shore 

And that ends the story of my bonnie days 
Oh, that I could live them once more 
and this much I know I'd produce my own show, 
and I'd stage it along the French shore ya, 
C                            G
While sailin along, sailin along, 
F                            C            
While sailin along, sailing along, 
F               G               C
While sailin along the French shore
