1st fret
I've seen a couple versions of this tab, but I felt most were off a bit. I think 
this version sounds A TAD better! Feel free to email/make corrections :) It's a 
weird strumming pattern that you'll have to figure out on your own


CAPO 1ST FRET


A              E         A            D          A      E        A
I will live my life as a lobsterman's wife on an island in the blue bay.
A                    E           A7             D
He will take care of me, he will smell like the sea,
     A           E                 A
And close to my heart he'll always stay.


A                 E               A         D             A
I will bear three girls all with strawberry curls, little Ella and
E         A
Nelly and Faye.
A                       E             A7            D
While I'm combing their hair, I will catch his warm stare
       A      E          A
On our island in the blue bay.



     E        E7             D       A
Far away far away, I want to go far away.
     E                       A
To a new life on a new shore line.
          E         E7          D          A
Where the water is blue and the people are new.
    E            D (hold..)
To another island, in another life.

A

A                     E          A         D        A         E          A
There's a boy next to me and he never will be anything but a boy at the bar.
                     E               A7         D
And I think he's the tops, he's where everything stops.
      A        E             A
How I love to love him from afar.
        A                E          A       D         A
When he walks right pass me then I finally see on this bar stool I can't 
E
stay.
        A         E         A7          D
So I'm taking my frown to a far distant town
       A      E         A
On an island in the blue bay.



     E       E7               D      A
Far away far away, I want to go far away.
     E                      A
To a new life on a new shore line.
           E       E7           D         A
Where the water is blue and the people are new.
    E            D (hold..)
To another island, in another life.



(the bridge is various As and Es... play to your liking as long as you end on A)
 
I want to go far away.
Away away, I want to go far away, away, away
I want to go far away, far away.


          E        E7           D         A
Where the water is blue and the people are new.
   E                D        A
To another life, to another life.
   E
To another shore line
D (hold..)      A (hold..)
In another life.

During the part "on this bar stool I can't stay", there's some different chord, not an A. I can't quite tell what it is, though.

I think it's F#m. I think you also play F#m (instead of A) for "on a new shoreline" during the chorus as well.

It can kind of work there if you throw the E in quicker and finish on an A. seems to sound alright.
