D D A E D D A EEIt's Maine and it's Autumn The Birches have just begun F♯mturniBng EIt's life and it's dying The lobsterman's boats come F♯mreturnBing With the C♯mcatch of the day in their Aholds And the Eyoung boys cold and cF♯momplainBing AThe fog meets the beaches And out on the Reach it is raining. D D- A E ... D D- A E -- EIt's father and son It's the way it's been done since the F♯mold dBays EIt's hauling by hand ten miles out from the land Where their cF♯mhow waBits And the C♯mdays are all lonley and lAong And the sEeas grow so stormy and stF♯mrong, bBut... EThe Reach will sing welcome as homeward they hurry along --
ChorusEAnd the morning will blow away As the waves crash and fAall And The Reach like a Esiren sings As she beckons and F♯mcallsA As the coastline recEedes from view And the seas swell and Agrow I will take from The EReach All the she has to F♯mteachA To the dBepths of my sEoul -- EThe wind brings a chill There's a frost on the sill in the F♯mmorniBng EIt creeps through the door And out on the shore, ice is fF♯morminBg Soon the C♯mNorthers will bluster and Ablow And the Ewoods will be whitened with sF♯mnowfaBll And The EReach will lie frozen For the lost and unchosen to row.
ChorusNote: D- I don't know the name of this chord, but it's just a D with your finger off the E string.
