INTRO: Em   D Em  (6x)
 
 
Now the time had come for Elzevir and John
                D         Em
To be sent from Holland's shore
 
And to end their days in pain and misery
                D        Em
To be slaves so far from home
 
 
   C        D         Em
Oh oh - how sweet the salt sea air
   C        D          Em
Oh oh - how bright the sun
   C        D      Em
Oh oh - but little did they know
       C          D      Em
Of the storm that was to come
        C         D        Em
And the ship that would go down
 
 
C             G           D           Em
Hey, boys and listen well and a story I will tell
C            G                D
Send for the prisoners down below (down below!)
C            G             D                 Em
Hey boys and wish 'em well and the fate that them befell
    C                  D             C
And pray that you will never see the day
                      D                 Em
You'll fight for your life on Moonfleet Bay!
 
 
 
Well the storm hit hard and the waves were high
             D          Em
It was every man for himself
 
By a twist of Fate, t'was on Moonfleet Bay
 
Where the ship would meet its end
 
 
   C           D       Em
Oh oh - with a roar of wind and sail
   C        D        Em
Oh oh - the ship was gone
   C           D           Em
Oh oh - in the night, they saw a light
          C      D         Em
T'was the candle Grace had shone
        C       D      Em
And her boy was coming home
 
 
C             G             D              Em
Hey, boys the ship is down, every man must swim or drown
C            G               D
Head for the breakers on the shore (on the shore!)
C    G                 D              Em
Hey, boys for Elzevir, he put John in Fortune's care
    C           D                  C
For no man ever was there 'til that day
               D                Am
Saved from the sea on Moonfleet Bay!
 
 
                            
"What shall we do with the boy who's drowning?
G
What shall we do with the boy who's drowning?
Am                                            G            Am
What shall we do with the boy who's drowning, early in the morning?"
 
 
 
"Throw him a rope and god go with him
G
Throw him a rope and god go with him
Am                                    G            Am
Throw him a rope and god go with him, early in the morning?"
 
 
INSTRUMENTAL: F C G Am F C G  F C G Am 
 
    F           G              F
And Elzevir, he gave his life away
                 G             F
But John was the only man that day
G                     Am
Saved from the sea on Moonfleet Bay!
