I'm looking for the guitar chords to a Scottish song that I've seen been called the Orkney Boatman's Song. However on the album Ivan Drever and Dick Clarke - October Bridge (1988) they call it The Fomaing Sea / Nancy. Seems like there is not much information about the song available on the web, but I did find some partial lyrics here
"The foaming sea is dear to me,
It bears me on to thee, love!
And what care I though the spume-drift fly.
It speeds me on to thee, love!
The heart that's true ne'er dreads the view
Of stormy clouds or sea, love! ;
The curling wave may scare the slave,
It ne'er will scare the free, love!"
Thanks for any help!!
