Rebel Ship

Rebel Ship (G)
 
       G
We fought in wars on foreign shores
             C                       G
Till our fathers were forsaken
 
Some still cry for those who died
                 D
Under the butchers bloody apron
    G                                 C               G
In Hamel on the Somme at Gallipoli
(C)                                              D               G
Only under Fleming's flag will we be truly free
 
Chorus
 
     C…………C…..G
So raise your glass
C                             G
Hold your head up high
C                                 G
Raise your heart and praise your soul
          D
Pink White and Green we'll fly
C………C…..G
We'll be free
      C                     G
To challenge any land
           C               G
We're on a rebel sailing ship 
             D                             C…….G…….
The Republic of Newfoundland
 
        G
The year was 1949
          C                          G
They gave our nation away
 
For pension cheques and UI stamps
      D
To live from day to day
G                              C                             G
Some stood by and watched the ballots fall
(C)                                                 D                G
No more wicked sisters no more Cinderella's ball
chorus
 
Bridge:  G….Am….Bm….C….D
 
{So it's been 50 years of bloody jokes
50 years of being broke
50 years of blowing smoke
to all us Newfoundlanders
50 years of Smallwood dreams
50 years of foolish Schemes
only  worked for them it seems
God Guard Thee Newfoundlanders}
 
chorus

G

Come Liberal, come Tory

C

Come Cadillac, come dory

G

Come Labrador and Newfoundland

D

It’s here we make our stand

G

With our hearts and our souls

C

And our spirits bold

D

God guard thee Newfoundland

chorus

Outro (off-strum): C….Bm….Am….G
