Farewell To Nova Scotia

The sun was setting in the west
The birds were singing on every tree
All of nature seemed inclined for to rest
But still there was no rest for me

Farewell to Nova Scotia, the seabound coast
Let your mountains dark and dreary be
But when I am far away to the briny ocean tossed
Will you ever hear a sigh or a wish for me

I grieve to leave my native land
I grieve to leave my comrades all
My aging parents who I always held so dear
And the bonny, bonny lass I do adore


The drums are beating, the horns do alarm
The captain calls and we must obey,
So farewell, farewell to Nova Scotia's charms
For it's early in the morning and I am far away


I have three brothers and they're at rest
Their arms are folded upon their breast
But a poor simple sailor just like me
Must be tossed and driven on the dark blue sea
