Three Score and Ten

With the sky to all appearances, looks like an approachin' gale
Me thinks I see them yet again, and the midnight hour is past
The little craft abattlin' there, against the icy blast

October's night brought such a sight, t'was never seen before
There were mast and yards and broken spars, a washin' on the shore
There were many a heart in sorrow, many a heart so brave
There were many a fine and hearty lad, that met a watery grave

Me thinks I've heard the captain say, "Me lads we'll shorten sail"
With the sky to all appearances, looks like an approachin' gale
Me thinks I see them yet again, and the midnight hour is past
The little craft abattlin' there, against the icy blast

Me thinks I've heard the captain say, "Me lads we'll shorten sail"
With the sky to all appearances, looks like an approachin' gale
Me thinks I see them yet again, and the midnight hour is past
The little craft abattlin' there, against the icy blast

(Capo 2nd fret)

{C} And it's three score and ten boys and men were {F} lost from Grimsby {C} town
From {F} Yarmouth down to {C} Scarboro many hundreds more were {G7} drowned
Our {C} herring craft, our trawlers our {F} fishin' smacks, as {C} well
They {G7} long did fight that bitter night the battle with the {C} swell

Me thinks I see a host of crafts, {F} spreadin' their sails a{C}lee
{F} Down the Humber they {C} do glide, all bound for the Northern {G7} Sea
Me {C} thinks I see on each small craft, a {F} crew with hearts so {C} brave
Going {G7} out to earn their daily bread, upon the restless {C} wave
