Great Big Sea - Excursion 'Round The Bay

Printable Version


From "Great Big Sea" (1991)
(Johnny Burke)

Well it was [G]on this Monday morning and the day be calm and fine
To the [D7]Harbour Grace excursion with the [G]boys to [D7]have a [G]time
And just before the sailor took the [C]gangway from the [G]pier
I [C]saw some fella [G/D]haul me wife a[D7]board the Volun[G]teer

CHORUS:
Oh [G]me, oh my, I heard me old wife cry
Oh [D7]me, oh my, I [G]think I'm [D7]gonna [G]die!
Oh me, oh my, I [C]heard me old wife [G]say,
"I [C]wish I'd never [G/D]taken this ex[D]cursion around the [G]bay" 

We had [G]full three hundred souls aboard, oh what a splendid sight!
Matt [D7]Strange in regimentals to [G]make our [D7]spirits [G]bright
And meself being in the double, from the [C]funny things they'd [G]say
They [C]choke themselves from [G/D]laughing when they'd [D7]see us in the [G]bay 

CHORUS

Me [G]wife she got no better, she turned a sickly green
I [D7]fed her cake and [G]candy, fat [D7]pork and kero[G]sene
Castor Oil and sugar of candy, I rubbed [C]pure oil on her [G]face
And I [C]said she'll be a [G/D]dandy when we [D7]reaches Harbour [G]Grace! 

CHORUS

My [G]wife she got no better, my wife me darling dear
The [D7]screeches from our [G]trollie you could [D7]hear in Carbo[G]near
I tried every place in Harbour Grace, tried [C]every store and [G]shop,
To [C]get her something [G/D]for a cure or [D7]take her to the [G]hop 

CHORUS

She [G]died below the brandies as we were coming back
We [D7]buried her in the [G]ocean, wrapped [D7]up in a Union [G]Jack
So now I am a single man, in [C]search of a pretty [G]face
And the [C]woman that says she'll [G/D]have me, I'm [D7]off for Harbour [G]Grace!
