The Evelyn Marie song lyrics and guitar chords, as sang by Conal Gallen. Guitar chords by Marc Fahrbach. The Evelyn Marie was lost 7th January 1975 of the coast of Donegal near Ratlin. The crew of 7 men were all drown. A fine tribute to our brave fishermen.

C-C-Em-Am

 

T’was a (C)cold winter’s day and the (F)seas they did (C)roar

When six bold fishermen made their (Em)way to the (Am)shore.


Said good(C)bye to their friends and their (F)loved ones so (G)dear

And (C)they went a fishing from (Em)Burtonport (Am)pier.


They were (C)carefree and proud as they (F)sailed out to (G)sea


On a (F)fine fishing (C)vessel called the (F)Evelyn Ma(C)rie.

 

C-C-Em-Am

 

But (C)as they returned with their (F)catch for the (C)day

Through the treacherous waters of (Em)Donegal (Am)Bay.


The (C)joy on their faces was (F)soon turned to (G)grief


When off (C)Rathlinoburin their (Em)boat hit a (Am)reef.


She (C)quickly broke up and (F)sank in the (G)sea


And six (F)crew men went (C)down with the (F)Evelyn Ma(C)rie.
 


 

C-C-Em-Am

 

Now the (C)news quickly spread all a(F)long the north (C)west


That the crews on the lifeboats were (Em)doin’ their (Am)best.


As the (C)winds they grew stronger and the (F)rain it did (G)pour


While the (C)locals they searched all a(Em)long Malin(Am)more.


And as (C)daybreak shone out it was (F)plain for to (G)see


That there (F)were no sur(C)vivors on the (F)Evelyn Ma(C)rie.
