The Storm

	  		
  
  
Intro: Em   D Em  (6x) 
  
  
Now the time had come for Elzevir and John 
                D         Em 
To be sent from Holland's shore 
  
And to end their days in pain and misery 
                D        Em 
To be slaves so far from home 
  
  
   C        D         Em 
Oh oh - how sweet the salt sea air 
   C        D          Em 
Oh oh - how bright the sun 
   C        D      Em 
Oh oh - but little did they know 
       C          D      Em 
Of the storm that was to come 
        C         D        Em 
And the ship that would go down 
  
  
C             G           D           Em 
Hey, boys and listen well and a story I will tell 
C            G                D 
Send for the prisoners down below (down below!) 
C            G             D                 Em 
Hey boys and wish 'em well and the fate that them befell 
    C                  D             C 
And pray that you will never see the day 
                      D                 Em 
You'll fight for your life on Moonfleet Bay! 
  
  
  
Well the storm hit hard and the waves were high 
             D          Em 
It was every man for himself 
  
By a twist of Fate, t'was on Moonfleet Bay 
  
Where the ship would meet its end 
  
  
   C           D       Em 
Oh oh - with a roar of wind and sail 
   C        D        Em 
Oh oh - the ship was gone 
   C           D           Em 
Oh oh - in the night, they saw a light 
          C      D         Em 
T'was the candle Grace had shone 
        C       D      Em 
And her boy was coming home 
  
  
C             G             D              Em 
Hey, boys the ship is down, every man must swim or drown 
C            G               D 
Head for the breakers on the shore (on the shore!) 
C    G                 D              Em 
Hey, boys for Elzevir, he put John in Fortune's care 
    C           D                  C 
For no man ever was there 'til that day 
               D                Am 
Saved from the sea on Moonfleet Bay! 
  
  
                             
"What shall we do with the boy who's drowning? 
G 
What shall we do with the boy who's drowning? 
Am                                            G            Am 
What shall we do with the boy who's drowning, early in the morning?" 
  
  
  
"Throw him a rope and god go with him 
G 
Throw him a rope and god go with him 
Am                                    G            Am 
Throw him a rope and god go with him, early in the morning?" 
  
  
Instrumental: F C G Am F C G  F C G Am  
  
    F           G              F 
And Elzevir, he gave his life away 
                 G             F 
But John was the only man that day 
G                     Am 
Saved from the sea on Moonfleet Bay!
