Hi there. I'm looking for chords to "Fisherman's Song" written by Fred Lavery please.

The chorus lyrics are:

"All the way, the whole long day,
Bearing the toil and the strain.
Restless and free, you're a part of the sea,
Fathers of children like me."

Thank you in advance.

I believe it goes "haul away the whole long day" as in a fisherman hauling in his catch. I don't have the chords but if you e-mail the writer (fred atsymbol lakewind dot com) he'll probably help you out.

I don't have chords, but I found lyrics ag GEST:


FISHERMAN'S SONG
(Fred Lavery)

On the shores of Aconi,
'Round four in the mornin',
The fishermen rise from their dreams;
Boats ready and waitin,
There's no hesitatin',
Shove off, boys, there's work to be done.

Haul away the whole long day,
Bearin' the toil and the strain;
Restless and free, you're a part of the sea,
Fathers of children like me.

Duckin' the spray,
They go sailin' away,
Red faces straight into the wind;
They're dipping and shifting,
Oh, boys, how they're lifting,
It's off to the banks they will go.

Haul away the whole long day,
Bearin' the toil and the strain;
Restless and free, you're a part of the sea,
Fathers of children like me.
