The Bluenose (Michael Stanbury)
See also: Bluenose (Stan Rogers)
And also: Bluenose (Ryan's Fancy)

Now, I've got a story to tell
Of a ship that served her people well,
O, the Bluenose was her name
And she never lost a race;
She won herself a place
In the history of Canada.
Blow, winds, blow,
For the Bluenose is sailing once again.

Beat to the windward once more,
And up, sheath the for's'l as before,
For your country will be proud once again
Of the ship and the men
Who sail her smartly into victory.
Blow, winds, blow,
For the Bluenose is sailing once again.

Built in a Nova Scotia town
Where the shipwrights had earned the world's renown,
Down in Lunenburg they built
A living legend out of skill, sweat, and pride,
And they sailed her masterfully till she died.
Blow, winds, blow,
For the Bluenose is sailing once again.

Beat to the windward once more,
And up, sheath the for's'l as before,
For your country will be proud once again
Of the ship and the men
Who sail her smartly into victory.
Blow, winds, blow,
For the Bluenose is sailing once again.

Beat to the windward once more,
And up, sheath the for's'l as before,
For your country will be proud once again
Of the ship and the men
Who sail her smartly into victory.
Blow, winds, blow,
For the Bluenose is sailing once again.
For the Bluenose is sailing once again.
