 "The Old Polina" (Tra/Arr.GBS)
  From "The Hard And the Easy"(2005)

  Use a capo on the 1st fret (sounding key Eb Major)

            C                       Dm
 There's a noble fleet O' whalers,sailin' from Dundee,
    F                          F          F       C
 Manned by British sailors to take them o'er the Sea
       C                         Dm
 On A Western ocean passage we started on the trip,
      F               F                   C       F      C
 we flew along just like a song on our gallant whaling ship

 twas the second sunday morning,just after leavin' port,
 we met a heavy sou'west gale that washed away our boat
 it washed away our quarterdeck,our stanchions just as well,
 an so we sent the whole shebang ah-floatin' in the gale

          C                           Dm
 For the wind was on her quarter,the engine's working free,
          F                        F         F     C
 there's not another whaler that sails the Arctic Sea,
      C                        Dm            
 cant beat the Old Polina,ye need not try me sons,
       F                  F                     C    F     C
 we challenged all both great and small from Dundee to St Johns!

 Art Jackman set his Canvas,Fairweather got up steam,
 but Captain Guy the daring B'y came plungin' through the stream
 and Mullins in "The Husky" tried to beat the bloody lot,
 but to beat the Old Polina,boys,was something he could not.


 There's the noble "Terra Nova",a model without doubt,
 the "Arctic" and "Aurora" they talk so much about.
 Art Jackman's model mailboat,the terror of the sea,
 tried to beat the Old Polina,on a passage from Dundee.


 Now we're back in old St Johns where rum is very cheap,
 we'll drink a health to Captain Guy who brought us o'er the deep
 A health to all our sweethearts,and to our wives so fair,
 not another ship could make the trip,"The Polina!"I declare

 CHORUS X2,first A Capella 

 the first verse is actually sung with just a bodhran,with
 the backing coming in for the second verse. the chords 
 given are the ones starting there (And repeat for the entire
 song, including the chorus.
