Thread Name: Lyr Req: Dockyard Gate (from Peter Bellamy)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Peter Bellamy's Dockyard Gate
Well, the line does make more sense to me as:

"Perhaps he's at his watch on deck, our joys he can't behold"


"Or perhaps he is in the black list, our joys will never unfold"

only further evidences the perils of transcribing from what someone actually sings! Buy that singer another beer.
