Farewell to Nova Scotia lyrics

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

Farewell to Nova Scotia that seabound coast
Let your mountains dark and dreary be
For when I am far away on the briny ocean tossed
Will you ever heave a sigh and a wish for me

I grieve to leave my native land
I grieve to leave my comrades all
And my aged parents whom I always held so dear
And the bonnie, bonnie lass that I do adore

Farewell to Nova Scotia that seabound coast
Let your mountains dark and dreary be
For when I am far away on the briny ocean tossed
Will you ever heave a sigh and a wish for me

The drums do beat and the wars do alarm
Our captain calls we must obey
So farewell, farewell to Nova Scotia's charms
Cause it's early in the morning and I'm far, far away

Farewell to Nova Scotia that seabound coast
Let your mountains dark and dreary be
For when I am far away on the briny ocean tossed
Will you ever heave a sigh and a wish for me

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

Farewell to Nova Scotia that seabound coast
Let your mountains dark and dreary be
For when I am far away on the briny ocean tossed
Will you ever heave a sigh and a wish for me

Farewell to Nova Scotia that seabound coast
Let your mountains dark and dreary be
For when I am far away on the briny ocean tossed
Will you ever heave a sigh and a wish for me
