                Hi. Many people replied asking for the chords since the news message
didn't get through. Here it is, anyway.
I post things into the news with VI, but I made the Chords text back home
on my PC, and I think something went wrong when I tried to insert my
previously-made text file into the vi editor. Any ideas? I used ":e" and I
was sure it worked, but.... Please send me any help you've got for any
further posting from me....


By Dunford/Thatcher

Play with Capo on second fret. The chords listed hear are transposed one
tone backward (Am should actually be Bm when the Capo is applied)
All verses have the same sequence of chords. The two chorus have another 
sequence. There is a piano intro and ending, ommitted here.
The verses are played in a fast arpeggio. Simply pluck the chords of the

Am              D
Out at daybreak to the sun
C                 D
Seas are drifting glass
    Am                D
The tides were turning to the storm
C                 D
Winds were moving fast
F             G
Women waiting at the harbour
C              E
Silent stand around
F               G 
Weather storms another day
    C               E
For men the sea has found

Fisherman were laying nets
The barrels spread the bait
The seagulls warning echoed round
Winds that wouldn't wait
People gathered at the harbour
Waiting for the tide
Eyes half closed against the spray
And tears they cannot hide

Am              Dm
Shadows falling at the harbour
G            C
Women stant around
Am               Dm
Weather storms another way
    G       Em      Am         D       C      D    
For man the sea had drowned

Hulls were creaking crashing sails
Rains were slanting down
The oilskins flapping, decks awash
Slanting turning round
Thunder roaring at the harbour
Women drawn in fear
Huddle up to wait the time
And pray the sky well clear

Howling winds and the raging waves
Cracked upon the boats
And torn from safety, torn from life
Men with little hope
Ghostly echoes at the harbour
Whispering of death
Women weeping holding hands
Of those they still have left

Shadows falling at the harbour
Women stant around
Weather storms another way
For man the sea had drowned

Have Fun!
