Mayflower       By Rich Dombroskie

[Intro]   Am  G   Am G   Am  G  F  Am

[Verse 1]
Am              C           G               Am 
Darkness came early, as the snow began a swirling
                   C             G           Am 
The lake began to growl, as the wind it did howl
                    C          G             Am
Although it looked tired, the engine still fired
      G             F             Am
The Mayflower, had just one more run

[Verse 2]
Am         C             G       Am
It was in November, the year 1912
Am                  C    G             Am
Chugged out of the Bay, for it,s final day
Am                C            G         Am
The Captain and crew, with passengers so few 
Am               G              F
Ahoy yelled the mate, as they headed south on Kaminiskeg 

[Verse 3]
Am                     C            G        Am
The steamwheeler moved on toward Combermere Town
Am            C             G          Am 
Carrying the corpse of one Herman Brown
Am              C              G         Am
In a coffin so fine, made of local white pine
Am  G          F             Am
Oh Mayflower, just one more run

[Verse 3]
Am              C            G            Am
The night grew cold as the storm it took hold
Am             C           G          Am
Whitecaps did rise, to an enormous size
Am               C                  G                 Am  
The hull took a thrashing, as the waves kept on crashing
Am                  G           F                Am
The Mayflower was dyin, as the passengers were crying

[Verse 4]
Am                  C          G        Am    
The Mayflower went down with hardly a sound
Am                 C               G             Am  
Several met their keeper, as that boat, it sank deeper
Am          C                    G           Am
They just couldn,t escape, that treacherous Lake
Am                  G       F               AM
T,was a disastrous plight, on that fateful night

[Verse 5]
Am              C        G                     Am
Although seven died, a miracle kept three men alive
Am               C            G            Am  
When Mr Brown,s coffin, came up from the bottom
Am              C                 G                Am
Clinging to the box, they floated to the nearest rocks
Am               G          F              Am
Spent a frigid night, not giving up their fight

[Verse 5]
Am                     C         G          Am
If you ever pass this way, on a very clear day
Am                C             G           Am
Where Kaminiskeg flows from the Masawaska River
Am               C               G                  Am  
You will feel a chill where the Mayflower lies so still
Am      G      F      Am
In her watery grave forever
