Recruiting Sargeant - Great Big Sea
Tabbed by Brian Steels

This is how I play it on my Acoustic. You can play it on electric, but tapping on the 
in the second last chorus wont help.
Also, account for the slight accent on the words. You = Ye. I didn't write it in the 
part but I did in the second because thats how it sounds to me.

Enjoy

Verse 1
G                             C        Em
Two recruiting Sergeants came to the CLP
        C                        G               D
For the sons of the merchants to join the Blue Puttees
   C         D          G  G/F#  Em
So all hands enlisted, 500 young men
G                  C           D           G
Enlist you Newfoundlanders and come follow me

G

Verse 2
G                                      C           Em
They crossed the broad Atlantic in the brave Florizel,
    C               D              G         D
And on the sands of Suvla, they entered into hell
C                                G     G/F#     Em
And on those bloody beaches, the first of them fell...
G                  C           D          G
Enlist ye Newfoundlanders and come follow me

Chorus

G                               C        Em
And it's over the mountains and over the sea
     C                          G            D
Come brave Newfoundlanders and join the blue puttees
C                                   G  G/F#   Em
We'll fight the Hun in Flanders and at Gallipoli
G                 C           D           G
Enlist ye Newfoundlanders and come follow me

G

Verse 3
G                                 C         Em
The call came from London for the last July drive
         C                             G                   D
"Tell the trenches with the regiments; prepare yourself to die."
C                                G   G/F# Em
The roll call next morning, just handful survived
G                 C           D           G
Enlist ye Newfoundlanders and come follow me

Chorus

G                               C        Em
And it's over the mountains and over the sea
     C                          G            D
Come brave Newfoundlanders and join the blue puttees
C                                   G  G/F#   Em
We'll fight the Hun in Flanders and at Gallipoli
G                 C           D           G
Enlist ye Newfoundlanders and come follow me

Verse 4
G                                   C           Em
The stone men on Water Street still cry for the day
         C                      G        D
When the pride of the city went marching away
C                              G        G/F#  Em
A thousand men slaughtered, to hear the King say
G                 C           D           G
Enlist ye Newfoundlanders and come follow me

Chorus

G                               C        Em
So, it's over the mountains and over the sea
     C                          G            D
Come brave Newfoundlanders and join the blue puttees
C                                   G  G/F#   Em
We'll fight the Hun in Flanders and at Gallipoli
G                 C           D           G
Enlist ye Newfoundlanders and come follow me

Chorus
(Tap on your guitar the beat in this part)

And it's over the mountains and over the sea

Come brave Newfoundlanders and join the blue puttees
C                                   G  G/F#   Em
We'll fight the Hun in Flanders and at Gallipoli
G                 C           D           G
Enlist ye Newfoundlanders and come follow me
G                 C           D           G
Enlist ye Newfoundlanders and come follow me
