Bluenose     4/4     Stan Rogers
Standard Tuning  No Capo                                Submitted by Ken Lee
Intro:                                          kandvlee@shaw.ca
              / Am                              / C
Once a - / gain with the tide, she / slips her lines,
                / C                             / Am
Turns her / head and comes a - / wake,
                 / Am                         / C
Where she / lay so still there at / Privateers Wharf,
               / F                       / Am
Now she / quickly gathers / way,
              / Am          /                    / C
She will / range far / south of the / harbour mouth, and
        / C                        / D        / /
Re - / joice with every / wave, / /
Am                          / C                       / F     / /
Who will know the / Bluenose in the / sun.

              / Am                    / C
Feel her / bow rise free of / Mother sea,
       / C                          / Am
In a / sunburst cloud of / spray,
        / Am                                      / C
That / stings the cheek, while the / rigging will speak
     / F                           / Am
Of / sea miles gone a - / way,
          / Am                        / C
She is / always best under / full press,
         / C                    / D    / /
Hard / over as she'll / lay. / /

Chorus: @2
Am                          / C                       / Am   / /
Who will know the / Bluenose in the / sun,

       / Am                                / C
The / proud past queen of the / Grand Banks fleet,
          / C                      / Am
Port - / rayed on every / dime,
          / Am                      / D
Knew / hard work in her / time,
         / F                   / Am
Hard / work in every / line.

       / Am                               / C
The / rich man's toys o' the / Gloucester boys,
                 / C                 / Am
With their / token bit of / cod,
         / Am                                     / C
They / snapped their spars and / strained to pass
      / C
her / by,
              / F                         / Am
But she / left them all be - / hind,
                                   / D
Now her namesake / daughter re - mains,
     / F                               / Am
To / show what she has / been.
                    / C
What every / school boy remembers, and
F                           / Am
Will not come a - / gain,
     / Am                                     / C
To / think she's the last of the / Grand Bank
schooners,
         / Am                / D      / /
That / fed so many / men. / /

Chorus: @2
Am                          / C                        / F     / /
Who will know the / Bluenose in the / sun./ /
Break:      Fiddle
                       / Am                            / C
So does she / not take wing like a / living thing,
C                               / Am
Child of the moving / tide
               / Am                                 / C
See her / pass with grace on the / water's face
         / F                        / Am
With / clean and quiet / pride
       / Am                    / C
Our / own tall ship of / great renown,
        / Am               / D    / /
Still / lifts unto the / sky./ /
 Am                         / C                        / F       /
Who will know the / Bluenose in the / sun? /
 Am                         / C                        / Am   /
Who will know the / Bluenose in the / sun? /
 Am                         / C                        / Am
Who will know the / Bluenose in the / sun?
                / C                        / Am
Know the / Bluenose in the / sun, @ 3 ?
