ACADIAN SATURDAY NIGHT  Time: 2/4  Tenor: E   Bass: ?
- Stan Rogers, 1974 (never recorded)

1             *         *          *
Uncle Emile's gone now, nearly ten days
   4                  *            6m        *
He told his wife he's gone for the fishing
           1          *              *        *
But in the waters off St. Pierre and Miquelon isles
    4              *          6m      *
The fishes come in bottles of gold
           1          *               *             *
And if the Anne Marie floats, and the Mounties stay blind
         4               *      6m       *
He'll be back before the sun is rising
       1         *          *           *
With a very fine catch, all safe in the hold
       4        *        6m           1      57       1      *
Thirty cases of Trinidad Light, for A-cadian Saturday Night

Emmeline Comeau works the general store
Pappa's says she's good for the custom
She got eyes like fire, and hair past her shoulder
As shiny black as anthracite coal
You can see her Sunday morning on the St. Phillipe road
Her mother close behind like a dragon
But her mother don't know what she does behind the hall
Away from the music and the lights, on Acadian Saturday Night


CHORUS:
         1   *             *                *
And it's oh____, don't the fiddles make you roll
          4          *             6m      *
Till your heart, she pounds like a hammer
          1        *           *            *
There's a fat lady beating the piano like a drum
    4           *             6m    *        1      57       1      *
And everybody's higher than a kite____, on A-cadian Saturday Night


Grandpa said it was better in his day
The Mounties stayed away from the parties
And he didn't mind a fight, when the spirits got high
You could always throw them out in the snow
And the rum was better, and it came in bigger bottles
And the revenue cutters were slow
But the old Anne Marie has wings on the water
And there's nothing like Trinidad Light, (for Acadian Saturday Night)
