RISE ME UP FROM DOWN BELOW
(James P. Barker in the style of "Lemon" Curtis)
(Doerflinger - 'Songs of the Sailor and Lumberman' - p47)
Oh, I come from the world be-low. That is where the cocks do crow.
[Whis-key oh, John-ny oh!
Oh, rise me up from down be-low,
down be-low, oh, oh, oh, oh
Up a-loft this yard must go, John!
rise me up from down be-low!]
I come from the world below!
That is where the fires do roar
