Bluenose
By David Martin

Em                            D           Em
In the town of Lunenburg down Nova Scotia way
Em                                D
In nineteen twenty-one on a windy day
                   Em     B7                Em
A sailing ship was born, "Bluenose" was her name
Em                   B7   Em
You'll never see her kind again

{Refrain}
C   D         G               Em
Bluenose, the ocean knows her name
C                D                G  B7
Sailors know how proud a ship was she
C   D     G              Em
Bluenose, leaning in the wind
C            D           Em
Racing ev'ry wave on the sea


Em                               D                Em
Her hull was long and black, her sails were snowy white
Em                                   D
She looked just like a young bird in flight
                  Em         B7                Em
And from the very first, the Bluenose loved to run
Em                     B7      Em 
She loved the smell of sea and sun

{Refrain}
C   D         G               Em
Bluenose, the ocean knows her name
C                D                G  B7
Sailors know how proud a ship was she
C   D     G              Em
Bluenose, leaning in the wind
C            D           Em
Racing ev'ry wave on the sea

Em                             D                  Em
For twenty-five long years she ruled the Northern sea
Em                         D
Riding like a queen on the tide
            Em       B7              Em
In the Caribbean one dark and stormy day
Em             B7       Em 
She ran into a reef and died

{Refrain}
C   D         G               Em
Bluenose, the ocean knows her name
C                D                G  B7
Sailors know how proud a ship was she
C   D     G              Em
Bluenose, leaning in the wind
C            D           Em
Racing ev'ry wave on the sea

Em                           D           Em
Now just the other day, down Nova Scotia way
Em                             D
In Lunenburg they christened a ship
                      Em         B7          Em
Just like the old Bluenose, down to the very name
Em                    B7   Em 
The Bluenose lives to sail again

{Refrain}
C   D         G               Em
Bluenose, the ocean knows her name
C                D                G  B7
Sailors know how proud a ship was she
C   D     G              Em
Bluenose, leaning in the wind
C            D           Em
Racing ev'ry wave on the sea
