I can't quite get the basic melody of this one.
Got the chorus OK but need the dots (I'm a bit deaf...)
Thanks

Thia may or may not be helpful.

If you sing the chorus, then sing the do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-do scale of the song.
The verse ("Westward from the Davis Straight"), it starts on "la", two notes down from "do".

Thank you friends.
I did find the link to the sheetmusic for the chorus, but it's the verse I'm after.
Jeri: I'll try to get it by ear - maybe listen to a baritone voice, which I find easier to follow (I have a deep baritone voice myself) than Stan Rogers', and some others who seem to sing more recitativo, making the tune harder to pin down.
I try not to get frustrated with my hearing difficulty, but being a mostly 'by ear'musician, it's definitely a thing.
Cheers
