J.P. Cormier - Molly May




INTRO: Em D C  Em D C  Em D C   G Am G

N.C.   Em           D
Just a lad I was of thirteen years
        G                  C
When my father passed away
      Am             C              G
And I had to take a job as deckhand 
                  D
On the Molly May
        Em               D
And the time I spent one summer past
       G                 C
Turned into fifty years
        Am                    C              
And the sound she made as she broke the waves
      D               G    D-G
Still rings within my ears


N.C.    Em                     D
She was passed to me when I was twenty-three
        G                    C
Captain Mills went round the bend
         Am                C     
He saw a forerunner on the dock one night
    G             D
And never sailed again
     Em                   D
Superstition be damned, I sailed her proud
     G              C
Fair maiden of the sea
          Am                 C   
There was never another like her
       D               G
And no one for her but me


CHORUS:
Am                  Em                 D         G     C  
I saw the time with me in my prime, no man could be my equal
            Am                  Em            D    G  
Through the eye of a needle I'd sail her any day
    Am                Em                      D       G        C
But when I grew older I couldn't hold her, my courage slipped away
        Am                   Em           D                   G  D-G
So they put a young boy from Canso at the wheel of the Molly May


INSTRUMENTAL: Em D C  Em D C  Em D C   C G Am G  D-G


N.C.    Em                    D
Ah, the years went by and the tales ran high
       G                   C
Of the catches we brought in
           Am                   C    
There were times I thought we'd sink her
        G                     D  
But her spirit would not give in
Em                   D
Words are spoken and souls are broken
        G                    C
And the bottle shattered mine
        Am                C   
I could see that she'd outlive me
        D              G
I'd not win the war of time


CHORUS:
    Am              Em                  D         G     C
But I saw the days amid devil waves, no man could be my equal
            Am                  Em            D    G  
Through the eye of a needle I'd sail her any day
Am                Em                      D       G        C
When I grew older I couldn't hold her, my courage slipped away
        Am                   Em           D                   G  D-G
So they put a young boy from Canso at the wheel of the Molly May


INSTRUMENTAL: Em D C  Em D C  Em D C   C G Am G  D-G


N.C.  Em               D
I was there to see her sail away
       G                 C
In the cold December haze
        Am                  C       
But the Canso boy had never seen the likes
       G                   D  
Of the southeast wind and waves
       Em               D
At the harbour mouth he drifted south
      G               C
Right into Lighthouse Rock
       Am                   C   
And he smashed her keel and laid her low
        D                      G     D-G
While I watched there from the dock


CHORUS:
    Am                  Em                 D         G     C
But I saw the time with me in my prime, no man could be my equal
            Am                  Em            D    G  
Through the eye of a needle I'd sail her any day
    Am                Em                      D       G        C
But when I grew older I couldn't hold her, my courage slipped away
        Am                   Em           D                   G  
So they put a young boy from Canso at the wheel of the Molly May
             Am    G   C      
And there'll never be another
    D                   Em   C   Em D C   Em D C G
The likes of the Molly May
      Am                 Em                 D                   G
And I wish that I'd gone down, boys, at the wheel of the Molly May
