Washington Irving – Old St. Luan

Took my best shot at the lyrics and tried to put the chords directy above the lyric to help you
figure out the timing. Cheers!

[Intro]
E   A   E   
    B   
E   A   E   
B   A   E

[Verse]
E                     A           E
We all pull ourselves over the sea
                      B
Until we can see our blessed home land
E                           A              E
Banished from peace and the monasteries’ keep
                B            A              E
To build our new home in the white Scottish sun

[Verse]
E                       A            E
And I will not lose the race to the island
                           B
So I cut off my finger and threw it ahead
           E                      A            E
And now the blood has stained the white sea a foamin’
               B         A            E
Maybe Old St Luan’s not right in the head

[Chorus]
E                        A        E
Oh lord, Oh lord there’s red sea around me
                       B
I’ve been striking out for the shore
E                      A           E
Oh you part the waves gently around me
                    A      E
I cannot fall on my own no more

[Interlude]
E   A   E   
    B   
E   A   E   
B   A   E

[Verse]
E                          A            E
Oh please, lord please the sirens are wailing
                                       B
You know I’d pluck out my eyes if they caused me to sin
        E                         A              E
And the wine is all gone from the weeks we been sailing
                       B               A            E
Won’t you send me the reed(?) wash the salt from my skin

[Verse]
E                       A        E
But he was striking out ahead of me
                              B
And I would have no place to lay my head down
     E                A            E
The first human flesh on the shore rest
          B              A            E
And you lie still in the swell of the sun

[Chorus]
E                        A        E
Oh lord, Oh lord there’s red sea around me
                       B
I’ve been striking out for the shore
E                      A           E
Oh you part the waves gently around me
                    A      E
I cannot fall on my own no more

[Chorus 2]
E                           A        E
Yes lord, Yes lord there’s red sea around me
                       B
I’ve been striking out for the shore
E                      A           E
Oh you part the waves gently around me
                    A      E
I cannot fall on my own no more

[Outro]
E   A   E   
    B   
E   A   E   
B   A   E
