Farewell To Tarwathie

George Scroggie

4:4 Key: G

[G]Farewell to Tar[Am]wathie, A[C]dieu Mormond [G]Hill
And the dear land of [Am]Crimmond, I [C]bid you fare[G]well
I'm bound off for [Em]Greenland and [C]ready to [G]sail
In hopes to find [Am]riches, in [C]hunting the [G]whale

Farewell to my [Am]comrades for a [C]while we must [G]part
And likewise [Am]the dear lass, who [C]first won my [G]heart
The cold coast of [Em]Greenland, my [C]love will not [G]chill
And the longer my [Am]absence more [C]loving she'll [G]feel

Our ship is well [Am]rigged and she's [C]ready to [G]sail
The crew they are [Am]anxious to [C]follow the [G]whale
Where the icebergs do [Em]float and the [C]stormy winds [G]blow
Where the land and the [Am]ocean is [C]covered with [G]snow

The cold coast of [Am]Greenland is [C]barren and [G]bare
No seed time nor [Am]harvest is [C]ever known [G]there
And the birds here sing [Em]sweetly, in [C]mountain and [G]dale
But there's no bird in [Am]Greenland to [C]sing to the [G]whale

There is no habit[Am]ation for a [C]man to live [G]there
And the king of that [Am]country is the [C]fierce Greenland [G]bear
And there'll be no temp[Em]tation to [C]tarry long [G]there
With our ship under [Am]full sail we will [C]homeward [G]repair

[G]Farewell to Tar[Am]wathie, A[C]dieu Mormond [G]Hill
And the dear land of [Am]Crimmond, I [C]bid you fare[G]well
I'm bound off for [Em]Greenland and [C]ready to [G]sail
In hopes to find [Am]riches, in [C]hunting the [G]whale
