Three Score And Ten

Chorus

              C                   G   C            G    C

And it’s three score and ten boys and men

         F            G           C

Were lost from Grimsby Town
        G                         C

From Yarmouth down to Scarborough
                                       G

Many hundreds more were drowned
        C                  G    C

Their herring craft and trawlers

         F        G             C

Their fishing smacks as well

    G
Alone they fight the bitter night
                           C

And battle with the swell

 

Verse 1

C
Me thinks I see a host of craft
F                     G      C

Spreading their sails alee

     G                         C
As down the Humber they do steer

                             G                        
Bound for the great North Sea
C

Me thinks I see a wee small craft
F                     G            C

And crew with hearts so brave

They go to earn their daily bread
                         C

Upon the restless waves
(Chorus)

Verse 2

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’re safe on board alright
With their sails close reefed
Their decks washed clean
And their sidelights burning bright
Chorus

 

Verse 3
October’s night brought such a sight
«Twas never seen before
There were yards of masts 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)

Allsang og «devil horns»

Om det var jungeltelegraf, eller iherdig programlesing som skyldtes folketilstrømningen vites ikke, men tyve minutter før Storm Weather Shanty Choir skulle på i båthavna, økte folketettheten….Pratesurr fikk en brå stans da Storm Weather satte i med alle stemmer i lydsjekken. – Bare vent, dåke ska jaggu meg få! Sa frontmann Håkon Vatle. Og det fikk folket. Koret oppløste pratestemningen og la blod, svette og tårer ned i å få litt lite festmotiverte publikummere med på allsang og «devil horns». Og det klarte de med sjarm, innlevelse og refreng på stor plakat. Haugesunds Avis, 12. juli 2008
