When I was a young man just barely 1
F chordF C chordC
Craving adventure and lore
F chordF C chordC
I boarded a clipper me dad was a skipper
G chordG C chordC C2 chordC2
and sailed it along the French shore ya
F chordF G chordG C chordC
we sailed all along the French shore

What beautiful vessels were sailing back then
Ah bound for the north Labrador
It's over that reason they came here that season
To sail all along the French shore ya
To sail all along the French shore

On each ship a maiden was hired to cook
A chordA beautiful girl to adore so young and cavorting
All ready for courting while sailing along the French shore ya
While sailing along the French shore

Being too young for courting I soon did decide
To spy on the lovers on shore I spied on a couple
So loving and supple while sailing along the French shore ya
While sailing along the French shore

Their actions peculiar appeared to me then
but now their not funny no more
they were huggin and kissin' oh what ive been missin
while sailing along the French shore ya
while sailing along sailing along while sailing along the French shore

That couple has children now married I know
You see they're not young anymore
Yet still they don't know how I witnessed the show
That they played all along the French shore ya
That they played all along the French shore

And that ends the story of my bonnie days
Oh that I could live them once more
and this much I know I'd produce my own show
and I'd stage it along the French shore ya
C chordC G chordG
While sailin along sailin along
F chordF C chordC
While sailin along sailing along
F chordF G chordG C chordC
While sailin along the French shore
