The Marques was a ship which sank during a tall ships race. I heard the song once and really liked the sad melody. I'm looking for the words and chords.

Didn't find anything obvious. It sank in 1984.

On June the 11th with the loss of 19 of its crew of 28.
Only one body was recovered.
I am trying to help, but am drawing a blank on the song you refer to.
Where and when did you here it, can you narrow the search down a bit?

The song "Marques" was written by Hughie Jones. There don't appear to be any lyrics on the web, but they are included in the songbook "Hughie's Ditty Bag", available for £3 + £1 p&p from the Chantey Cabin here:- Hughie Jones page at the Chantey Cabin where you will also find a couple of CDs that include the song - "Hughie's Ditty Bag" and "Hughie Jones with Bob Conroy "Live" at Snug Harbor", recorded in the New York Sailor's Home where William Doerflinger collected the immortal Leaving of Liverpool.
I have a copy of Hughie's songbook somewhere. If he's happy for the lyrics to be listed here, I'll post them when I find it.

Ross
