Émile Bertrand by The United Steel Workers of Montreal


NOTE:  The lyrics for this tab have been taken predominantly from the liner notes.
the version on their album contains a few different lyrics and an additional verse. As 
I
done my best to provide accurate lyrics for the song as it is played on the album, 
the additional verse. Enjoy.... and don't tell me if I am wrong because I don't want
know.


Intro:
C F (x 4)

C               F
Dirty boats and filthy ropes.
C                F
Sore backs from crooked jacks.
C               F
Straw boss and Irish moss.
Am             G
Kerosene and coal.

C                  F
Slinging hash and counting cash.
C                  F
Coffee stains and neck strains.
C                  F
Manager smiles at broken tiles
Am                 G
on the greasy old floors.

Bridge:
Am F C G
Am F G
Am F C G
Am F C


C               F
Slow pokes and tow ropes.
C                  F
Sailors knots and widows plots.
C                            F
We hear the yell of the the steeple bell,
Am                G
Of St. Cunégonde.

C                F
Cads’ hands and frying pans.
C         F
Cash in, clear the bin.
C                   F
Mopping floors and closing doors.
Am                G
I’m  on my way home to you.

Chorus:
Am        F              C       G
But dreaming just comes easy
Am                    F            G
When the work is too hard to bear.
Am      F            C           G
But staring in your eyes dear,
Am               F            C
believing our dreams can be here.

Bridge:

C F
Am G


C                      F
We meet at night, ‘neath the dirty light.
C                  F
Filthy jeans with worn out seams
C             F
Lunch box is out of hock.
Am                       G
Will we drink the night away?


Extra verse...
C                   F
Change your shoes, this afternoon
C                    F
You fixed your hair because you care
C         F
Lipstick will do the trick
Am                        G
Will we dance until the dawn?

Chorus:
Am       F                C       G
But dreaming just comes easy
Am                     F            G
When the work is too hard to bear.
Am       F            C        G
But staring in your eyes dear,
Am                    F              C
Means believing our dreams can be here.

C                    F
It’s near to four, they locked the door.
C                     F
Descend the stairs, the dreams we share.
C                   F
The neon lights are outta sight
Am                         G
As we walk hand in hand home.
