Liam Clancy - Home From The Sea



[INTRO] 
C   F   C   G   C

[VERSE 1]
      
On a cold winter's night, with the storm at its height
  F                     C
A lifeboat answered the call
     G                C               E7                Am
They pitched and they tossed, 'til we thought they were lost
      D                        G
As we watched from the harbour wall 


[VERSE 2]
           C         
Though the night was pitch black, there was no turning back
    F                       E
For someone was waiting out there
    F                     C             Am
And each volunteer had to live with his fear
        D                  G     G/F  G/E
As they joined in a silent prayer


[CHORUS]
G/D      C           F             C
Carry us home, home, home from the sea
F         C      Dm         G 
Angels of mercy, answer our plea  
             C           F             C
And carry us home, home, home from the sea
F        C       Dm  G         C     F  C  G  C
Carry us safely, home from the sea

  
[VERSE 3]
         
As they battled their way past the mouth of the bay
       F                    C
It was blowing like never before
        G         C             E7          Am
As they gallantly fought, every one of them thought
   D                      G
Of loved ones back on the shore 


[VERSE 4]
       C
Then a flicker of light and they knew they were right
          F                     E
There she was on the crest of a wave
         F                           C       Am
She's an old fishing boat, and she's barely afloat
        D                           G     G/F  G/E
"Please God, there are souls we can save!"


[CHORUS]
    G/D        C           F             C
And carry them home, home, home from the sea
F         C      Dm         G 
Angels of mercy, answer our plea  
             C           F             C
And carry us home, home, home from the sea
F        C       Dm  G         C     F  C  G  C  F  C  G  C
Carry us safely, home from the sea


[VERSE 5]
     
And back in the town, in a street that runs down
       F                   C
To the sea and the harbour wall
         G           C            E7          Am
They had gathered in pairs at the foot of the stairs
   D                  G
To wait for the radio call  


[VERSE 6]
    C
And just before dawn, when all hope was gone
       F                  E
Came a hush and a faraway sound
          F                        C         Am
'Twas the cox'n he roared, "All survivors on board!"
      D                      G     G/F  G/E
Thank God and we're homeward bound  


[CHORUS]
   G/D        C           F             C
To carry them home, home, home from the sea
F         C      Dm         G 
Angels of mercy, answer our plea  
               C           F             C
And carry them home, home, home from the sea
F          C       Dm  G         C   G
Carry them safely, home from the sea


         (**Key Change - Up 2 Semitones**) 
        

[CHORUS]
D           G             D
Home, home, home from the sea
G         D      Em         A 
Angels of mercy, answer our plea  
               D           G             D
And carry them home, home, home from the sea
G          D      Em  A         D
Carry them safely home from the sea
