G                              F              G
She's not a heavy sleeper, she listens to the night
                           F             C               G
She's a dreamer. She's the keeper of the pointe au baril light
    C                                  G
And when the lamp is lit she gives her mind to the wind
    F                        G
She sits up by the light and plays her violin


          G           F          C               G
There's a ring on her finger. It glistens as she plays
          F              C    G
The light holds her in a warm embrace
    C                     G
She thinks of the man who promised her the night
          F            C         G
Come with me, emmeline, we'll be keepers of the light


F                  G      C    G
Emmeline, let your fiddle be a boat

And with every note you play you'll be sailing back again
        F
To the days when you were young
          G   C      G
Tune your ear to the wind
C            G              C            Am             G   Em
Play your violin, play your fiddle, emmeline, you'll be sailing

F                          C                     G
Hard to believe it's seven years since he passed on
                 F                C                G
All the children married now, she keeps the light alone
   C                                 G
So when the lamp is lit she puts her fiddle to her chin
      F                 C            G
Draws strength from the music, takes comfort in the wind


    G              F            G
The point au baril beacon makes pictures in the dark
              F              C            G
Every flash a photograph she keeps in her heart
C                        G
Emmeline the mother, the lover, the friend
F            C           G
Emmeline the dreamer who plays the violin


Am (Sustain)--------------------------
Emmeline, there's a rumour going 'round
------- Am---------------------------------------------------
They're changing all these lights, they won't need keepers now
(Acapella)
You've lived out your dream, you're the last of your kind
                             F
There'll never be another... Emmeline


         G      C    G
let your fiddle be a boat

And with every note you play you'll be sailing back again
        F
To the days when you were young
          G   C      G
Tune your ear to the wind
C            G              C            Am             G   Em
Play your violin, play your fiddle, emmeline, you'll be sailing
          C           Am              G
play your fiddle, emmeline, you'll be sailing
