Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Out on the Rolling Sea (Joseph Spence)
The version on "Good Morning Mr. Walker" is also helpful. With some more lyrics:

Rollin' sea when Jesus speak to Jonah
Rollin' sea when it roll
Rollin' sea when it speak to me
Rollin' sea when it roll

The crayfish started a ruckus and
Ran aground the sinking sun
For around the whale he chose upon the son
The bin and the bait came a-throwed it down
Tell you about something that a don't know man
But still don't know…

Jonah in that fish, ain't 'bout to lie,
Someone? Anyone alive?
Pray for Jonah
Down on Nineveh's bank
On the bank of Zion
Was out on the roll…

Been away yonder on the mountain top
To hear what they spoke of the chariot stop
The halibut, tuna, mackerels, and the guppies
Down man? Does anyone know?
In the morning sun, they was out on the roll…

Tell of one, Ishmael, Abraham's son
The bearer of Isaac and dreadful one
Tell of how Judah was killed by a fall
Solomon built the Millo to lift up that wall
Low in the morning sun, he was out…
