MMario Songs of the Sailor and Lumberman (165* d) Lyr Add: STORMALONG 20 Dec 02

DT tunefile - STRMALNG

(from the singing of Richard Maitland)
(Doerflinger - 'Songs of the Sailor and Lumberman pp82-83)

Old Storm-a-long was a gay old man,
[To me, way, old Storm-a-long!
Old Storm-a-long was a grand old man
[Aye, aye,aye,Cap-tain Storm-a-long]

But now he's dead, poor old Stor-my's gone
We bur-ied old Storm-y off Cape Horn

Poor old Stormy we'll ne'er see again.
We buried Poor Stormy off Cape Horn

We rolled him up in a silvery shroud
We lowered him down with a golden chain.

Although he's gone, he's left us a son.
How I wis I was old Stormy's son!

I'd build a ship of a thousand ton
I'd load her down with New England Rum

I'd sail this wide world round and round
And every day my crew would get their rum!

I'd pour out two drinks for the shantyman (twice)

I'd pour out drinks for every man
And a double cup for the shantyman!
