               / G                             / C
Well, it's / Blackfish at play in / Hermitage Bay,
          / D                                              / G
From / push through across to Bois / Island.    (pronounced BWAS)
         / G
They / broach and they spout, and
         / C
They / lift their flukes out, and
         / A                                   / D
They / wave to a town that is / dyin'.
              / G                                           / C
Now it's / many's the boats, that has / plied on the foam,
C                         / C       -        D
Hauling a - way, / Hauling a - way!
                   / G                                         /C
But there's / many more fellows, been / leaving their homes,
                   / D                                       / G
Where the / whales make free in the / harbour.

          / G                                      / C
It's at / Portage and Main you'll / see them again,
              / D                                  / G
On their / way to the hills of Al - / berta.
         / G                              / C
With / lop-side grins, they / waggle their chins, and
         / A                                           / D
They / brag of the wage they'll be / earnin'.
               / G
Then it's / quick, pull the string boys, and
C          /
Get the / tool out,
C                       / C      -       D
Haul it a - way, / Haul it a - way!
              / G                                        / C
But just / two years ago, you could / hear the same shout,
                  / D                                        / G
Where the / whales make free in the / harbour.

Chorus:

G                 / D                   / G                                         / D
Free in the / Harbour; the / Blackfish are sporting a - / gain,
 G                / C                    /                                            / C      -       D
Free in the / Harbour; un - / troubled by comings and / goings of men,
         / G                                         / C
Who / once did pursue them as / oil from the sea,
C                         / C       -        D
Hauling a - way, / Hauling a - way!
                     / G                                         / C
Now they're / Calgary roughnecks from / Hermitage Bay,
                   / D                                       / G
Where the / whales make free in the / harbour.

Break:

                  / G                               / C
Well, it's a / living they've found, / deep in the ground, and
               / D                                        / G
If there's / doubts, it's best they ig - / nore them.
       / G                                     / C
Nor / think on the bones, the / crosses and stones,
              / A                                             / D
Of their / fathers that came there be - / fore them.
          / G                                  / C
In the / taverns of Edmonton, / fishermen shout,
C                       / C      -       D
Haul it a - way, / Haul it a - way!
               / G                                             / C
They left / three hundred years buried / up by the Bay,
                   / D                                      / G
Where the / whales make free in the / harbour.

Chorus:

G                 / C                  / G
Free in the / harbour...a - / gain.

So in the choruses, and for instance at "now it's many's the boat..." it goes to Em instead of G, and at each first "Haulin' away" he goes to Am before proceeding to the C and then D for the second haulin' away.

More than half of the chords are wrong. There are a lot of different ones. Quite a few basic Em chords missing as well as Dsus7, Am.. Many (almost all) are not in the right position and many others are just incorrect
