There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
One of my favourite Great Big Sea songs. Its apparently written by a folk singer named Ron Angel,
but I've never found any version other than this one. On record, GBS sings it a cappella, but I
decided to figure out chords for playing it on the guitar. I'm fairly certain 
this song's in F minor, so
the easiest way to play it is to capo on the 2nd fret and play the chords in Em. 
Hopefully its pretty
accurate. Cheers.
         Em D   Em
And it's go boys go,
        G               Em
They'll time your every breath,
    G                Em
And every day you're in this place
        G        D      Em
You're two days nearer death
But you go

  Em             G         Em
A process man am I and I'm telling you no lie 
  Em                  G                   Em
I work and breathe among the fumes that trail across the sky 
        Em            D                    G            D                
There's thunder all around me and there's poison in the air 
          Em               G                   Em      D     Em
There's a lousy smell that smacks of hell and dust all in me hair


Well I work among the spinners and I breathe the oily smoke
I shoveled up the gypsum and it nigh on made you choke
I've stood knee deep in cyanide, got sick with a caustic burn
Been working rough, I've seen enough to make your stomach turn 


There's overtime and bonus opportunities galore 
The young men like their money and they all come back for more 
But soon you're knockin on and you look older than you should 
For every bob made on the job you pay with flesh and blood


Repeat 1st Verse

Thanks for the chords. GBS sings with an accompanyng bodhran, but quick, simple strumming on the low notes sound really good :)

Been looking for this song forever. I was a big fan of Ron Angel 'back in the day' when he was with The Teeside Fettlers and we roamed the North East searching out their gigs and singing his songs lustily in the way home. Now if only someone (more talented than I) could work out The Gisborough Road. Thanks for this!!!
