Fires of Calais by James Keelaghan ukulele Chords

CAPO: 5th Fret

INTRO: C F Em G C F Em G

The [C]fishing boats rolled [Em]out across the [F]dark green channel [G]water
As they [C]gather speed for [Em]Flanders, they [F]cut their nets a[G]way
It’s not [C]herring they’ll be [Em]pulling from the [F]waters on this [G]morning
But they’ll [C]reap a bitter [Em]harvest from the [F]fires of Ca[C]lais

INTERLUDE: C F Em G C F Em G

[C]Twenty leagues from [Em]France I saw the [F]amber soaked ho[G]rizon
In our [C]lee the cliffs of [Em]Dover fall be[F]neath the channel [G]waves
Where [C]waters used to [Em]sing a song to [F]soothe the hearts of [G]fishers
Now we [C]hear the rolling [Em]thunder from the [F]fires of Ca[C]lais

INTERLUDE: C F Em G C F Em G

As we [C]pull in tight to [Em]shore, this ar[F]mada bent on [G]rescue
I could [C]curse the men be[Em]hind the desks who [F]sell our lives this [G]way
I never [C]signed aboard to [Em]save them from this [F]bloody lack of [G]planning
That [C]strands these fine young [Em]men beneath the [F]fires of Ca[C]lais

INTERLUDE: C F Em G C F Em G

On the [C]beach allied con[Em]fusion, will they [F]stand or are they [G]running
If it’s [C]run, where will they [Em]go to between the [F]sea and the me[G]lee
On the [C]flanks the troops ad[Em]vancing and with [F]heavy guns they’re [G]firing
And not a [C]mother’s son could [Em]save them from the [F]fires of Ca[C]lais

INTERLUDE: C F Em G C F Em G

In scattered [C]groups upon the [Em]shore, some look to[F]wards a safer [G]harbour
Some [C]fix their eyes u[Em]pon the flames that [F]turn night to [G]day
Some yet [C]standing bold and [Em]ready to stoutly [F]guard the rear from [G]Jerry
They’ll [C]need no flares to [Em]see him ‘neath the [F]fires of Ca[C]lais

INTERLUDE: C F Em G C F Em G

I’ve [C]fished these channel [Em]waters since I was [F]man enough to [G]face them
For the [C]herring and the [Em]flounder I have [F]often hauled a[G]way
But a [C]catch like this I’ve [Em]never had in [F]forty years of [G]sailing
Saving [C]Tommies as they [Em]flounder ‘neath the [F]fires of Ca[C]lais

INTERLUDE: C F Em G C F Em G

The [C]fishing boats rolled [Em]out across the [F]dark green channel [G]water
As they [C]gather speed for [Em]Flanders, they [F]cut their nets a[G]way
It’s not [C]herring they’ll be [Em]pulling from the [F]waters on this [G]morning
They’ll [C]reap a bitter [Em]harvest from the [F]fires of Ca[C]lais
