Banks Of Newfoundland Lyrics

The Banks of Newfoundland
D G D A D
On St. Patrick's Day the seventeenth from New York we set sail.
D A D A
Kind fortune did favor us with a sweet and pleasant gale,
D A D A
We bore away from America; the wind being off the land.
G D G D A D
And with courage brave we plowed the waves bound down for NFLD.
D G D A D
Our Captain's name was Nelson just twenty years of age.
D A D A
As true and brave a sailor lad as ever plowed the waves.
D A D A
"The Evelyn" our brig was named belonging to MacLean.
G D G D A D
And with courage brave we plowed the waves bound down for NFLD.
D G D A D
Now when three days out to our surprise the Captain he falls sick
D A D A
In short he was not able to take his turn on deck
D A D A
The fever raged which made us think that death was close at hand,
G D G D A D
So we bore away from Halifax bound down for Newfoundland.
D G D A D
Now at three O'Clock we sighted a light that we were glad to see,
D A D A
The small pox had been raging; its what it proved to be,
D A D A
And at four O'Clock in the afternoon as sure as God's command,
G D G D A D
Oh he past away off Arichat bound down for Newfoundland.
