Ron Hynes - Cape Spear


## NOTE: ~ = Walk-Down from F to Dm ##



  
INTRO: C  Em  F    ~ Dm  G  C  G  C

                Em             F          ~ Dm
Me and Margaret grew up on the Southside
              G              Em   D A Dm
Our house was two doors down
                    G          F              Em
Across the bay, the city lay a stone's throw away
                  Dm                   G
Though we weren't wanted over there in town


         C                   Em             F        ~ 
When the summer turned, we'd hike the dusty highway
       Dm                  G                    Em   D A
Out to where the sun would split the rocks, I swear
Dm             G            F     Em
Stand with our backs to the ocean spray
        Dm                            G
Playing dangerous games of courage or dare


CHORUS:
C           Em
Cape Spear, Cape Spear
F              Em               Dm G
These would be moments we would savour
C              Em
Cape Spear, at Cape Spear
F             Em       Dm         G    F    Em  Dm  G  C
Time is but a face upon the wa-wa-wa-water


                 Em               F          Dm
Standing here, I still recall the morning
          G            Em   D A Dm
We awoke, Margaret was gone
                G               F          Em            Dm
She hadn't run away, she wasn't taken by a wave, no, no, no
              G              C
It's not that kind of song


                  Em          F              ~ 
There's enough of sad stories passed on down
      Dm               G               Em   D A 
Where old men weep and fishers' widows wail
    Dm               G           F            Em    
But Margaret and her maiden aunt only went to town
Dm                           G
Tides turn, the world turns 'round


CHORUS:
C              Em
Cape Spear, at Cape Spear
F               Em            Dm       G
Still I ply the dusty highway, year on year
       C                  Em
Out to Cape Spear, out to Cape Spear
F             Em       Dm        
Time is but a face upon the water
F             Em       Dm         G    F    Em  Dm  G  F  C  Dm  G  C
Time is but a face upon the wa-wa-wa-water


                  Em            F          ~ Dm
These eyes hardly recognize the Southside
                    G           Em   D A Dm
Margaret's house is gone, so is mine
                         G                    F       Em    
From where I'd watch the city glow, there's a seafood bistro
    Dm                                     G
And Margaret's house is a school of hair design


              C                   Em          F    ~ Dm
I say let the winds rush, let the waves wash away
               G          Em       D A 
One's bound to get ya one fine day
           Dm       G           Em    
For we are all only dreaming, I swear
        Dm                            G
Playing dangerous games of courage or dare


CHORUS:
           C              Em
Playing at Cape Spear, at Cape Spear
F              Em               Dm      G
These would be moments we would savour
C           Em
Cape Spear, Cape Spear
F            Em           Dm       G
We plied the dusty highway year on year
            F         Em      
Out to Cape Spear, to Cape Spear
F             Em            Dm     G 
Time is but a face upon the water
F             Em       Dm         G    F    Em  Dm  G  F  C  Dm  G  C
Time is but a face upon the wa-wa-wa-water
