THREE SCORE AND TEN 4/4 (Capo on 4th fret)

 

Chorus:

 

(C)And it's three score and ten

Boys and (Em)men were (F)lost from Grimsby (C)Town

From (F)Yarmouth down to (C)Scarborough

Many hundreds more were (G7)drowned                      

Their (C)herring craft and trawlers

Their (Em)fishing (F)smacks as (C)well

Alone they (F)fight the (G7)bitter night

And (C)battle (G7)with the (C)swell.

    

Me (C)thinks I see a host of craft,

(Em)Spreading their (F)sails at (C)lee

As (F)down the Humber (C)they do steer,

Down for the great North (G7)Sea

Me (C)thinks I see a wee small craft

And (Em)crew with (F)hearts so (C)brave

They go to (F)earn their (G7)daily bread

U(C)pon the (G7)restless (C)waves.

 

Chorus

 

Me thinks I see them yet again,

As they leave this land behind

Casting their nets into the sea,

The herring shoals to find

Me thinks I see them yet again,

And they save on board a right

With their sails close-reefed, their decks moist-cleaned

And their side-lights burning bright.

 

Chorus

 

October's night brought such a sight,

'Twas never seen before

There were masts and yards and broken spars,

Washed up upon the shore

There was many a heart of sorrow,

There was many a heart so brave

There was many a true and noble lad

To find a watery grave.

 

Chorus

THREE SCORE AND TEN  -Johnny McEvoy CAPO One [C]
 
[G]And it's three score and ten
Boys and men were lost from Grimsby Town
From [D7]Yarmouth down to [G]Scarborough
Many hundreds more were [D7]drowned                     
Their [G]herring craft their trawlers
Their [C]fishing smacks as [G]well
They [D7]long did fight that bitter night
And battle with the [G]swell.
   
Me [G]thinks I see a host of craft,
[C]Spreading their sails a[G]lee
As [D7]down the Humber [G]they do glide,
Down for the cold North [D7]Sea
Me [G]thinks I see a wee small craft
And [C]crew with hearts so [G]brave
Going [D7]out to earn their daily bread
Upon the restless [G]waves.
{CHORUS}
 
October's night brought such a sight,
[C]'Twas never seen be[G]fore
There were [D7]masts and yards and [G]broken spars,
Washed up upon the [D7]shore
There was [G]many a heart of sorrow,
There was [C]many a heart so [G]brave
There was [D7]many a true and noble lad
To find a watery [G]grave.
{CHORUS}
 
Next verse not sung by Johnny
Me thinks I see them yet again,
As they leave this land behind
Cast[D7]ing their nets in[G]to the sea,
The herring shoals to [D7]find
Me [G]thinks I see them yet again,
And they [C]safe on board all [G]right
With their [D7]sails close-reefed, their decks moist-cleaned
And their side-lights burning [G]bright.
{CHORUS}
