Home By The Sea

 

E  - A - E        - E - A - E - B7 - E

 

                     E

1. There's a lonely cottage by the sea side,

                       A                                 E

    where the water lilies strew the shore,

 

    it was there I passed my happy childhood

              B7

    with a loved one that's gone before.

 

           E                          E7                                 A                  E

Then give me back my dear old home, that old home by the sea,

                            A        E

and I never will wander far away,

                                 B7                      E

from my home, my dear old cottage home.

         

     E - A - E - B7 - E         +  E  - A - E        - E - A - E - B7 - E

+ (Yodeling…          )

 

                E

2. Many years have passed since there I wandered,

                 A                                       E

    but the old cot ne'er has been forgot,

                                                                      B7

    and my heart in fancy oft returns to that dear old familiar spot.

 

                         E - A - E - B7 - E      +  E  - A - E    - E - A - E - B7 - E

+ CHORUS + (Yodeling…          )

 

                     E

3. Yes, my heart is like the humming sea shell

            A                                           E

    that tells of its birth where e'er it roams,

 

    I will sing of my cottage by the sea shore

               B7

    of my home my dear old cottage home.     + CHORUS
