Anyone out there have the lyrics for Phil Coulter's "Home from the Sea"? It was recorded by him a long w/ Liam Clancy a few years back. If you could help that would be great. Cheers, Paddy. PS-If you don't want to post, please email rockandrollpaddy1@yahoo.ca

HOME FROM THE SEA
Phil Coulter

1. On a cold winters night
With a storm at its height
The lifeboat answered the call.
They pitched and they tossed
Till we thought they were lost
As we watched from the harbor wall.
Though the night was pitch black,
There was no turning back,
For someone was waiting out there,
But each volunteer
Had to live with his fear
As they joined in a silent prayer.

CHORUS: Carry us home, home, home from the sea.
Angels of mercy, answer our plea,
And carry us home, home, home from the sea.
Carry us safely home from the sea.

2. As they battled their way
Past the mouth of the bay,
It was blowing like never before.
As they gallantly fought,
Every one of them thought
Of loved ones back on the shore.
Then a flicker of light
And they knew they were right.
There she was on the crest of a wave.
She's an old fishing boat
And she's barely afloat.
Please God, there are souls we can save.

CHORUS: And carry them home....

3. And back in the town
In a street that runs down
To the sea and the harbor wall,
They had gathered in pairs
At the foot of the stairs
To wait for the radio call.
And just before dawn
When all hope was gone
Came a hush and a faraway sound.
'Twas the coxswain he roared
All survivors on board
Thank God and we're homeward bound.

CHORUS: To carry them home....

I can't give you the original tune/chords. When I first saw the lyrics I liked them very much, but couldn't find the tune. So, as I often do in such a situation, I made up my own tune. So here it is for what it's worth. I rather like it. Later, after hearing the original Phil Coulter version, I still like my alternate tune/version.

Here it is in abc format. To get a score and a midi file, copy and paste the abc into Concertina.net convert-a-matic

Note that it is often referred to--with affection--as "The Lifeboat Song". (Found that info on the www.)

I play this on a banjo. So here I sit with my sons Stratocaster and no amp working out these chords.

Hope they are close.

(G7)On a co(C)ld winters night

With a storm at its height

The life(F)boat answered the ca(C)ll.

They pit(G)ched and they tos(C)sed

As we wat(D7)ched from the harbor wa(G)ll.

The Sheringham Shantymen recorded it, if that helps find the lyrics. I got a recording somewhere, probably emusic.com
