OUR CAPTAIN CRIED ALL HANDS

Our captain cried all hands, we sail tomorrow
And leave these girls behind to grieve and sorrow
Why do you go abroad, fighting for strangers
When you could be safe at home, free from all danger

You courted me a while just to deceive me
Now my heart you have gained, you mean to leave me
There's no belief in men, not my own brother
So girls if you can love, love one another

When I had gold in store you did invite me
Now that I'm low and poor you seem to slight me
I'll dry my wasted tears and leave off weeping
For happy we shall be at our next meeting

Farewell to all my friends, father and mother
I am your only child, you'll ne'er get another
There's no belief in men, not my own brother
So girls if you can love, love one another

@farewell @Army
