Farewell To Nova Scotia

I

The sun was setting in the west
and a small bird sang on every tree.
All nature was inclined ot take a rest
But There never is no rest no peace for me.

Chorus

Farewell to Nova Scotia
Your seabound coast
Though your mountains dark and dreary be.
And when I'm far awa' on the briny ocean tossed,
Would you ever heave a sigh and remember me

II

The drums do roll and the war goes on
And the captain calls you must obey,
And a poor simple sailor just like me
Must be tossed and turned on the deep blue sea

Chorus

Farewell to Nova Scotia
Your seabound coast
Though your mountains dark and dreary be.
And when I'm far awa' on the briny ocean tossed,
Would you ever heave a sigh and remember me

III

I had three brothers and they're at rest
Their arms are folded on their breasts.
So farewell, farewell to Scotia's green shore
And it's early in the morning and I'm far far away

Chorus

Farewell to Nova Scotia
Your seabound coast
Though your mountains dark and dreary be.
And when I'm far awa' on the briny ocean tossed,
Would you ever heave a sigh and remember me
