Subject: Chord Req: my love cape breton and me
From: GUEST,jsimpson

Hello- I'm looking for the lyrics and chords/music for "My Love, Cape Breton, and Me." As of now, I know that Roger Whittaker and John Gracie have sung it. It is a beautiful song, and I wrote down what I thought most of the lyrics were from a recording, but I would truly love to be able to sing and play it myself. The first two verses and chorus are:

"Sing me a song of your ---- (years?),
Of Mountains and waters so still.
A song that will speak of the magic of three,
My love Cape Breton, and Me.

Teach me the way of your land
How power and peace go hand in hand.
It's all that I want in this life and it's free
My Love, Cape Breton and Me.

Always your rivers are calling to me
And I hear the sounds the sweet melody
When we're apart and I feel all alone,
Carry me home, carry me home…"

If anyone can help me out, I would really appreciate it. Thank you so much!

If that is you asking Rollie I can give it to you at the jam in Judique tomorrow. I have the music sheet but it's loaded with odd chords.

Sorry to take so long getting back with this. The music sheet shows two progressions. Too many chords for me. :-}
      Sandy

    My Love Cape Breton And Me (by Bob Quinn)

1. (C)Sing me a(G/B)song of your(Am)hills,
Of(Dm)mountains and(C)waters so(G)still,
A(F)song that will(E)speak of(E7)the(Am)magic of(D7)three:
My(C/G)love Cape(F6/G)Breton and(C)me.

2. Teach me the way of your land,
How power and peace go hand in hand.
It's all that I want in this life and it's free:
My love Cape Breton and me.

(chorus)
(Am)Always your(Em/G)rivers are(F)calling to(Em)me;
(F7)I hear the(Am)sound of(F7)sweet melo(G add9)dy.

3. If my time could end perfectly,
I know how I'd want it to be.
God's gift of Heaven would be made up of three:
My love Cape Breton and me.

(repeat verse one and chorus)

MY LOVE, CAPE BRETON AND ME
From the album: Blueprint
Vocals: Kate Quinn
Lyrics: Bob Quinn
Music (Prayer For Peace Waltz): Natalie MacMaster

* This song was sung by my cousin Kate Quinn (composed by her Father Bob)
at my wedding on Oct 5th, 2002 just moments after my husband and I were
married. It was then that I was inspired to include it on the recording. -- Natalie

Sing me a song of your hills
Of mountains and waters so still
A song that will speak of the magic of three
My love, Cape Breton and me

Teach me the ways of your land
Where power and peace go hand in hand
It 's all that I want in this life and it 's free
My love, Cape Breton and me

Always your rivers are calling to me
I hear the sound of sweet melody
When we 're apart and I feel so alone
Carry me home, carry me home

If my time could end perfectly
I know how I 'd want it to be
God 's gift of heaven would be made up of three
My love, Cape Breton and me

It 's all that I want in this life and it 's free
My love, Cape Breton and me
