I bought an audio cassette at a music store in St. Johns, Newfoundland because it included a song with that intriguing title. Make & Break Harbor is sung by Stan Rogers with violin, guitar, bass, and vocal accompaniment.

In New found land, an old one-lung marine engine is called a 'make & break' engine even if it has a spark plug. The song is a lament for the passing of small fishing boats and the rise of the great trawlers.

Here are the words, with permission of the Fogarty's Cove Music Company:

How still lies the bay in the light western airs

Which blow from the crimson horizon.
