Song: Bluenose
Tabbed By: Charlie H.


Intro: Am

     Am                       G
Once again with the tide, she slips her lines,
          F
Turns her head and comes awake,
          Am                    G
Where she lay so still there at Privateers Wharf,
        F
Now she quickly gathers way,

         C                      Em
She will range far south of the harbour mouth, and
  Am               D
Rejoice with every wave,


Am                C               Am
Who will know the Bluenose in the sun.


         Am               G
Feel her bow rise free of Mother sea,
     F
In a sunburst cloud of spray,
     Am                          G
That stings the cheek, while the rigging will speak
   F
Of sea miles gone away,

       C                 Em
She is always best under full press,
     Am             D
Hard over as she'll lay.


Am                C               F
Who will know the Bluenose in the sun.
Am                C               F
Who will know the Bluenose in the sun.


    Am                      C
The proud past queen of the Grand Banks fleet,
   Em              Am
Portrayed on every dime,
     Em               Am
Knew hard work in her time,
     Em            N/C
Hard work in every line.

    Am                     C
The rich man's toys of the Gloucester boys,
           Em           Am
With their token bit of cod,
     Am                      D                    G
They snapped their spars and strained to pass her by,
        Em
But she left them all behind,

Am               G
Now her namesake daughter remains,
   F
To show what she has been.
Am         G
What every school boy remembers, and
F
Will not come again,

C                              Em
To think she's the last of the Grand Bank schooners,
     Am          D
That fed so many men.

Am                C               F
Who will know the Bluenose in the sun.
Am                C               F
Who will know the Bluenose in the sun.

            Am                   G
So does she not take wing like a living thing,
      F
Child of the moving tide,
        Am                     G
See her pass with grace on the water's face,
     F
With clean and quiet pride,

    C                Em
Our own tall ship of great renown,
      Am             D
Still lifts unto the sky.

Am                C               F
Who will know the Bluenose in the sun.
Am                C               F
Who will know the Bluenose in the sun.
                         Am
Know the Bluenose in the sun
Am       Em              Am
Know the Bluenose in the sun
