    "Young Fisherwoman" Lyrics

    Charlie Waller & the Country Gentlemen

    [G] The boats were all set to depart
    The crews mend the nets for the [D] journey
    One [G] last kiss from sweethearts and [C] wives
    Who were [D] left standing there by the [G] sea.

    [G] One young wife with tears in her eyes
    Who had only a short time been [D] wed
    But with [G] others she waited re [C] turn
    Of her [D] husband the fisherman [G] Ned.

    [G] She watched the small boats where they sailed
    Just a spec on the distant ho [D] rizon

    Then she [G] turned her weary foot [C] home
    For she [D] knew that the night would soon [G] come.

    [G] How [C] empty the [G] village would [D] be
    How [G] lonely the fisherman's [D] wife
    For [G] this was Ned's first trip to [C] sea
    Since she'd [D] moved to the village his [G] wife.

    [G] Some days now have passed since they've gone
    Was time to return to the [D] harbor
    The [G] women and children were [C] there
    With [D] laughter and hearts all a [G] stir.

    [G] And soon there were cries of delight
    From the lips of the ones who were [D] gathered
    A [G] pointed white sail had been [C] seen
    They were [D] welcomed and hailed as they [G] neared.

    [G] And then came a sign of despair
    For the sight of the boats they had [D] yearned
    They [G] all knew that fifteen had [C] left
    But [D] only fourteen had re [G] turned.

    [G] There [C] Grace so [G] torn could not [D] see
    Was [G] Ned's boat that could not be [D] found
    The [G] others trekked back to their [C] homes
    While [D] Grace knelt there on the [G] ground.

    [G] The story was told of the wind
    And the storm how the one boat was [D] swept
    How the [G] men had been lost in the [C] night
    Then the [D] whole village silently [G] wept.

    The [C] village still [G] tells how for [D] years
    The [G] young fisherwoman and [D] bride
    Had [G] watched for a boat to come [C] in
    Each [D] day by the lonely sea [G] side.
