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
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
