[Verse 1]

    C
The sun was setting in the west
    Am
The birds were singing on every tree
    C      G
All nature seemed inclined to rest
    Am          F      Am
But still there was no rest for me


[Chorus]

    C       
Farewell to Nova Scotia, the sea-bound coast
         Am
Let your mountains dark and dreary be
         C         G
For when I am far away on the briny ocean tossed
         Am           F         Am
Will you ever heave a sigh or a wish for me?


[Verse 2]

    C
The drums do beat and the wars do alarm
   Am
My captain calls, and I must obey
   C            G
So farewell, farewell to Nova Scotia's charms
         Am           F                Am
For it's early in the morning, I'll be far, far away


[Chorus]

    C       
Farewell to Nova Scotia, the sea-bound coast
         Am
Let your mountains dark and dreary be
         C         G
For when I am far away on the briny ocean tossed
         Am           F         Am
Will you ever heave a sigh or a wish for me?


[Verse 3]

  C
I grieve to leave my native land
  Am
I grieve to leave my comrades all
       C               G
And my parents, whom I loved so dear
        Am           F             Am
And the bonny, bonny lassie that I do adore


[Chorus]

    C       
Farewell to Nova Scotia, the sea-bound coast
         Am
Let your mountains dark and dreary be
         C         G
For when I am far away on the briny ocean tossed
         Am           F         Am
Will you ever heave a sigh or a wish for me?


[Verse 4]

  C
I have three brothers and they are at rest
      Am
Their hands are folded on their chests
      C               G
But a poor simple sailor just like me
        Am         F             Am
Must be tossed and driven on the dark, blue sea


[Chorus]

    C       
Farewell to Nova Scotia, the sea-bound coast
         Am
Let your mountains dark and dreary be
         C         G
For when I am far away on the briny ocean tossed
         Am           F         Am
Will you ever heave a sigh or a wish for me?

    C       
Farewell to Nova Scotia, the sea-bound coast
         Am
Let your mountains dark and dreary be
         C         G
For when I am far away on the briny ocean tossed
         Am           F         Am
Will you ever heave a sigh or a wish for me?

         Am           F         Am
Will you ever heave a sigh or a wish for me?
