Another great one by one of the best. There are some differences in this and the ones
that are currently online in both lyrics and chords.
This one is in standard but it sounds really good in DADGAD tuning as well.


Uncle Emile's been gone now nearly ten days
	 C			    G
Told his wife he'll be gone for the fishin'.
	   G	     G/F#	     Em	       D	
But in the waters off St. Pierre and Miquelon isles
	C	    		 Am
The fishes come in bottles of gold.
If the Anne Marie don't break and the mounties stay in line
	 C			 Bm
He'll be back before the moon is rising
       C		   G
With a very fine catch all safe in the hold
	C		 G
Thirty cases of Trinidad Light, 
     C      D7		 G	F	C	F
For Acadian Saturday Night.

Now Emmeline Comeau works the general store
Pappa says shes good for the customs
She's got eyes like fire and hair past her shoulders
As shiney black as Cumberland coal
You can see her sunday morning on the St. Phillipe rd.
Her mom close behind like a dragon
But her mamma don't know what she does behind the hall
Away from the music and the lights on Acadian Saturday Night

	D7	         C	        G	
And its oh__  don't the fiddle make you roll
	  C			       G
Till your heart shes a pounding like a hammer
	  D	   D#	     Em
There's a fat lady beating a piano like a drum
     G		             C
And everybodys higher that a kite
    C	    D7	       G	F	C	F
On Acadian Saturday Night.

Acadian Saturday Night		Stan Rogers   		page 2 of 2

Grandpa said it was better in his day
The mounties stayed away from the parties
And he didn't mind a fight when the spirits got high
You could always throw them out in the snow
And rum was better and it came in bigger bottles
And the revenue cutters were slow
But still the old Anne Marie has wings on the water
And theres nothing like Trinidad Light for Acadian Saturday Night

Repeat Chorus 2 X
