          D 
We were / bound home in Oct - / ober,
           A                   D
            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 

             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

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
