Fremantle Bay Lyrics And Guitar Chords by Justice, Written by Bonner. with the chords worked out by Marc Fahrbach, also recorded by Boru, and Sean Roche and Brendan Woods, also by Derek McCormack. It's a sad tale about being transported from Doolin Co.Clare to Fremantle Australia

Oh my (Dm)name hasn't (C)mattered for (F)manys a (G7)day

I was (Am)born on the (Em)west coast of (F)Clare(G)

By the (Am)time I was (Em)married and (F)had my own (C)land

There were (Dm)many who (G7)envied me (G)there

 

Our (Dm)home was con(C)tented, the (F)years quickly (G7)passed

We had (Am)four lads to (Em)carry our (F)name(G)

Then one (Am)year the crops (Em)failed and the (F)hunger set (C)in

I was (Dm)certain that (G7)I was to (G)blame

 

Chorus

And (F)oft times I think about (C)Doolin

And our (F)cottage a lifetime a(Em)way

Though I'm (F)chained here and (G)bound, my (F)heart can't be (C)found

In this (Dm)prison on (G7)Fremantle (G)Bay

 

There was (Dm)manys an (C)evening I (F)stood by the (G7)door

I looked (Am)out where my (Em)crops used to (F)be(G)

But the (Am)pain deep in(Em)side as I (F)looked in the (C)eyes

Of our (Dm)children, it (G7)drove me to (G)steal

 

It was (Dm)raining the (C)night when the (F)sheriff's men (G7)came

And the (Am)judge gave his (Em)verdict next (F)day(G)

For the (Am)lamb that you've (Em)stolen you'll (F)have to be (C)sent

To a (Dm)colony (G7)where you will (G)stay

 

Chorus

 

Oh the (Dm)sun it beats (C)down from a (F)merciless (G7)sky

And the (Am)rocks they eat (Em)into our (F)feet(G)

Oh the (Am)work's very (Em)hard but there's (F)never a (C)break

For (Dm)unfortunate (G7)men such as (G)me

 

My (Dm)crime costs a (C)shilling and (F)sixpence to (G7)mend

But it (Am)took me a(Em)way cross the (F)sea(G)

And (Am)now I must (Em)spend out the (F)rest of my (C)days

In this (Dm)land that means (G7)nothing to (G)me

 

Chorus twice
