Miquelon Run (Alf Fewer) tabs

Click Here for tabs.

Sixty bucks for a bottle's too much, me son,
Taxes on 'baccy killin' me and me woman;
Hellish when you got no 'baccy and rum,
'lows you're gonna have to go on the Miquelon run.
Put your fast boat out on the Miquelon run.

Yeah, I got me a boat she's as fast as the wind,
Them smokies they've tried to get me time and again;
I outrun em before, I'll take my chances again,
In a twenty-one footer that's fast as the wind.
Twenty-one footer that's fast as the wind.

Tonight I'll be looking over my shoulder,
For anything that moves out on the sea;
Me old dory mate just heard it on the scanner,
There's a Boston whaler and she's gonna be chasing me.

I was cruising home from the Miquelon run,
Boat came up behind me and I started to run;
Put the throttle to the floor, thought she'd come undone,
Doing ninety miles an hour on the Miquelon run.
There were tears in their eyes and they looked awful glum,
When I left 'em way behind me on the Miquelon run.

I'm all stocked up on 'baccy and rum,
Got lots to do me for months to come;
Winter's gone and the spring's coming on,
Will I take my boat from the Miquelon run,
Or will I put my fast boat back on the Miquelon run?

Racing on the high sea is not all fun,
Looking over your shoulder, always on the run;
Will I take my boat from the Miquelon run,
Or will I put my fast boat back on the Miquelon run?
May never see me again back on the Miquelon run,
May never see me again back on the Miquelon run.
