Fogarty's Cove.
Stan Rogers (1976)


---D---------------------------------G-----D---------------G
We just lost sight of the Queensport light down the bay be-fore us
-----Bm---------------------------G----------------------------D
& the wind has blown some cold to-day with just a wee touch of snow
--D------------------------G----D---------------G
A-long the shore from Lazy Head hard abeam Half Island
---Bm----------------------G-D--------A---------D
To-night we let the anchor go down in Fogarty's Cove

---------Bm----------------------A------Em----------------F#m
She will walk the sandy shore so plain, watch the combers roll in
-------G--------------------------D----A-----------------D
'Til I come to Wild Rose Chance a-gain down in Fogarty's Cove
-------Bm---------------------A----Em----------------F#m
She'll walk the sandy shore a-gain, watch the combers roll in
-------G-------------------------D-----A-----------------D
'Til I come to Wild Rose Chance a-gain down in Fogarty's Cove.

My Sally's like a raven's wing, her hair is like her mother's
With hands that make quick work of a chore and eyes like the top of a stove
Come suppertime she'll walk the beach wrapped in my old duffel
With her eyes upon the Masthead Reach, down in Fogarty's Cove

repeat chorus:

She cries when I'm away to sea, nags me when I'm with her
She'd rather I'd a government job, or maybe go on the dole
But I love her wave as I put about and nose into the channel
My Sally keeps a supper and a bed for me down in Fogarty's Cove

repeat chorus twice.

If the chords don't exactly line up in your display, just copy the whole thing to your word pro and change the font to "Courier New". Should do the trick.

It's also capoed 2nd or 3rd for the album key I'm pretty sure... I KNOW it's not in D... I'm almost certain it's in E...

And that really cool time sig change in the chorus... great fun that!

who say's folk music has to be simplistic...

Good work on the chords! Any clue what the phrase "Wild Rose Chance" means? Is it a landmark, a village, a figment of Roger's collective imagination?

I have also wondered about the meaning of Wild Rose Chance. There are certainly no pubs in Fogarty's Cove. We are talking about a rugged shoreline with a very small population. I suspect that it is a local term as the places mentioned are real.

Fogarty's Cove and Fogarty's Head are located a few miles from the town of Canso, where the Stanfest is held. They do exist and are located between Queensport and Canso. Lazy Head and Half Island also lie on this stretch of coastline.
This is a direct quote from Stan in his songbook:
" For some strange reason , government maps of Chedabucto Bay, Nova Scotia, show the place that I think of as Fogarty's Cove as being called Indian Cove. A lot they know."
The place that dosen't exist is Make And Break Harbour. That name came from the old put-put engines (the one-lunger) that most fishermen used in earlier days. It was chosen to apply to any fishing community along that shore.

Was curious about this myself, sorry to hear Wild Rose Chance either doesn't exist or is locally known only. For those interested in science fiction, S.M. Stirling's "Island in the Sea of Time" and it's sequels make some use of Stan's music, including a small town (in a Bronze Age Long Island) being named Fogarty's Cove - with a rather nice tavern named Wild Rose Chance. Thought it a nice homage.

Cheers!

Wild Rose Chance is the girl's name. Like Daisy Fortune, except it's Wild Rose Chance. Or like the hillbilly girl in Steinbeck's "Grapes Of Wrath" named Rose of Sharon, or Rosasharn as he gives it in dialect. Maybe Papa Chance was away working in Alberta when his daughter was born so they named her Wild Rose after the provincial flower.

"eyes like the top of a stove"

What damsel could resist such a romantic fantasy?

"Wild Rose Chance" as the name of a seaside pub makes lots of sense. "Wild Rose" is typically the name of a cheap whisky or other such liquor, while "chance" used to mean "favorable" as in the nautical phrase "chance of wind."

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

The idea of a 'seaside pub' has romantic appeal - but as far as I know, such a thing was an exceedingly rare creature in the Maritimes - still is, although not quite as much so now as in the 1960s or whatever earlier era Stan was imagining. See Sandy's first post.

Eyes like the top of a stove is not referring to the shape of her eyes, but rather the warmth.

I take the "eyes" business to be a reference to the round, removable, lids over the holes in the top of a woodstove, of the type that were common in country kitchens of the Maritimes (and elsewhere)in Stan's early days.

In the front page of todays Halifax Herald it tells of the coming destruction of Fogarty's Cove; how the land is being expropriated from the Fogarty family to house a large gravel quarry.
