Cliffs At Baccalieu Chords

   
Cliffs of Baccalieu     4/4     Stan Rogers

          D
We were / bound home in Oct - / ober,
           A                   D
From the / shores of Labra - / dor,
            G                     A
Trying to / head a strong Nor?- / easter and
       D
snow / too,
          D
But the / wind swept down up- / on us, and
      A                 D
The / day was dark as / night,
            G
Just be - / fore we made,
         A              D
The / land at Bacca - / lieu,

          D
Now  we / tried to clear the / island,
        A                     D
As we / brought her further / south,
          G
But the / wind from up,
      A                   D
The / Nor?east stronger / blew,
                           D
Till our lookout soon he / shouted, and
A                    D
There lay dead a - / head,
           G
Though a / snow squall,
             A                  D
Loomed the / Rocks at Bacca - / lieu
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/stan_rogers/cliffs_at_baccalieu_crd.html ]
             D
But it was / hard down by the / tiller,
        A                    D
As we / struggled with the / sheets,
             G                   A              D
Tryin? our / best ?to haul ?em / in a foot or / two,
           D
Till our / decks so sharply / tilted,
           A                 D
We could / barely keep our / feet,
        G
As we / struggled,
         A                  D
On the / Rocks at Bacca - / lieu.

          D
Now the / combers beat her / under, and
    A                     D
I / thought she?d never / rise, and
      G                   A                 D
Her / main boom, it was / bending nigh in / two,
           D
With her / lee rails two foot / under,
        A                D
Three / hands upon the / wheel,
          G
Sure we / hauled her,
           A                  D
From the / Rocks at Bacca - / lieu.

Break:  One verse Instrumental with
              Fiddle
     D
To / leeward was the / island,
     A                 D
To / leeward was the / shore, and
       G
That / blinding sleet could,
A                     D
Cut you through and / through,
          D
But our / hearts were beating / gladly,
         A                 D
For no / longer could we / gaze,
          G
Down to / leeward,
         A                   D
At the / Rocks of  Bacca - / lieu,
          G
Down to / leeward,
         A                   D
At the / Rocks of  Bacca - / lieu,
G        A                   D
