Cliffs of Baccalieu     4/4     Stan Rogers

          C
We were / bound home in Oct - / ober,
           F                   C
From the / shores of Labra - / dor,
            F                     F
Trying to / head a strong Nor?- / easter and
       C
snow / too,
          C
But the / wind swept down up- / on us, and
      F                 C
The / day was dark as / night,
            F
Just be - / fore we made,
         F              C
The / land at Bacca - / lieu,

          C
Now  we / tried to clear the / island,
        F                     C
As we / brought her further / south,
          F
But the / wind from up,
      F                   C
The / Nor?east stronger / blew,
                           C
Till our lookout soon he / shouted, and
F                    C
There lay dead a - / head,
           F
Though a / snow squall,
             F                  C
Loomed the / Rocks at Bacca - / lieu

             C
But it was / hard down by the / tiller,
        F                    C
As we / struggled with the / sheets,
             F                   F              C
Tryin? our / best ?to haul ?em / in a foot or / two,
           C
Till our / decks so sharply / tilted,
           F                 C
We could / barely keep our / feet,
        F
As we / struggled,
         F                  C
On the / Rocks at Bacca - / lieu.

          C
Now the / combers beat her / under, and
    F                     C
I / thought she?d never / rise, and
      F                   F                 C
Her / main boom, it was / bending nigh in / two,
           C
With her / lee rails two foot / under,
        F                C
Three / hands upon the / wheel,
          F
Sure we / hauled her,
           F                  C
From the / Rocks at Bacca - / lieu.

Break:  One verse Instrumental with
              Fiddle
     C
To / leeward was the / island,
     F                 C
To / leeward was the / shore, and
       F
That / blinding sleet could,
F                     C
Cut you through and / through,
          C
But our / hearts were beating / gladly,
         F                 C
For no / longer could we / gaze,
          F
Down to / leeward,
         F                   C
At the / Rocks of  Bacca - / lieu,
          F
Down to / leeward,
         F                   C
At the / Rocks of  Bacca - / lieu,
F        F                   C
