Sandy Lyr Req: Jock an Tam gaed oot tae sea in a wee... (2) Somebody must know this... 08 Oct 98

I've posted this a few times in the past. I'm going to keep on asking until I hopefully find someone that knows it. It's a poem and starts,

Jock and Tammie went to sea in a wee bit fishing boat..

It goes on about the weather getting bad, a strom blowing up e.t.c. until they are in dire fear for their lives. Jocky at this point prayes to god that if they are saved he will give up women and drink. It ends with...

....... and to drink I'll take no more, Says Tammie, Hud on, hud on noo Jocky Boy, I think I see the shore.

I heard this last in Pittenweem (fishing village on the East Coast of Scotland) from a seasoned fisherman who died some years ago. I cannot remember the words. Someone somewhere must surely know this. It's a classic.
