Stan Rogers - Bluenose
CREDIT GOES TO: Gary Hine

Am                           G
Once again with the tide she slips her lines
           F                 G
Turns her head and comes awake
          Am                    G
Where she lay so still there at Privateer's Wharf
          F
Now she quickly gathers way
          C
She will range far south
          E
From the harbor mouth
     Am                 D
And rejoice with every wave

Am                         G       Am
Who will know the Bluenose in the sun

Am                         G                   
Feel her bow rise free of mother sea
       F                     G
In a sunburst cloud of spray
       Am
That stings the cheek
          G
While the rigging will speak
    F                 G
Of sea miles gone away
        C                 E
She is always best under full press
      Am             D
Hard over as she'll lay

Am                          G      Am
Who will know the Bluenose in the sun
Am                          G      Am 
Who will know the Bluenose in the sun

    D                        G
The proud fast queen of the Grand Banks fleet
     C              E
Portrayed on every dime
     Am               D
Knew hard work in her time
     Am      G     D
Hard work in every line
     D                      G
The rich men's toys are the Gloucester boys
           C             E
With their token bit 'o cod
     Am          G        D
They snap their spars and strain to pass her by
E                     Am
But she left them all behind
    Am                 G
Now only her namesake daughter remains
    F                      G  Am
To show what she has been
              G
What every schoolboy remembers
     F
And will not come again
     C                          E
To think she's the last of the Grand Banks schooners
     Am          D
That fed so many men
Am                          G     F    G
Who will know the Bluenose in the sun
Am                         G       Am
Who will know the Bluenose in the sun

(break)
            Am
So does she not take wing
        G
Like a living thing
      F                  G
Child of the moving tide
        Am
See her fast swift grace
         G
On the water's face
      F      
With gleamin' quiet pride
     C                E
Our own tall ship of great renown
      Am              D
Still lifts unto the sky
Am                         G       F    G
Who will know the Bluenose in the sun
Am                         G       F    G
Who will know the Bluenose in the sun
Am                         G       F
Who will know the Bluenose in the sun
           Am     G       D
know the Bluenose in the sun
           C      G       Am
know the Bluenose in the sun

I was listening to this song and I don't really know Stan Rogers but I really like it. I heard it first on this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWUD_r6E4U8

Maybe there are different versions, but I like that one better. Make the following substitutions:

Am G C E
The proud...
The rich men's...

Am D
Knew hard...
Hard work...

And the most epic bit:

Am D G E
They snap their spars...

I am much more satisfied playing it this way. I may tab one out myself once I make sure of the rest of it, but that's my favorite bit.

Bridge section is way off. Version 4 has it right but just gives lyrics after the first verse and chorus.
