About this tab version
The other version had a few chords in the wrong place, and was missing all the minors. A little more challenging for a beginner, but definitly adds to the feel of the song, and is closer to the original. Was this info helpful? Yes No
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I was born under the stars,
      A                 Bm
Never meant to journey far
      G       D    G       D
From all the faces and the place
That I called home
And my father lived the same
         A            Bm
And his father before him
    G     D      G        D
But now I see in my son's eyes
Something has changed
        Bm                   F#m
And the smoke it has stopped rising
         G              D
From the chimney up the road
                        A               Bm
And the light no longer shines over the door
      D            A
Last year I lent a hand
             Bm             E
The haul the boats unto the land 
             D               A                  Bm
They've been lyin' there for nineteen months Or more
      D                A              D
And I wonder will they lie there evermore

Wasn't many years ago
         A                     Bm
That the men 'round here would go
    G        D          G          D                A
Out in there skiffs and haul their traps out on the bay
And then shortly they'd return
        A                Bm
Loaded down from stem to stern
G        D       G         D              A
And we'd off the fish then stow the gear away
        Bm            F#m
Now the waters are as barren
       G                    D
As the cliff that guard the cove 
                         A               Bm
And catch the north wind blowin' off the shore
      D             A
And I wonder how an ocean 
         Bm            E
Turns as lifeless as a stone
      D               A              Bm       
And I wonder can the sea revive once more
      D                A             D
And I wonder will they lie there evermore


Well I hear some people say
        A             Bm   G
We'd be better off to stay ashore
    D         G       D        A
And train for jobs outside the fishery 
Now wouldn't I look like a fool? 
       A               Bm
To go traipsin' off to school
G     D     G        D             A
After forty years of livin' of the sea 
       Bm              F#m
Now my son he's barely twenty-one
     G           D 
And handy at the trawl
    D                  A             Bm
For years he helped my fish the Labrador
         D           A        Bm                E
Now he's movin' to Ontario before the first snowfall
           D                A                 Bm
Dad theirs nothin' left for me 'round here no more
      D             A                Bm     G
And I wonder will I see his children born----|
      D                 A            D 
And I wonder will they lie there evermore
