Thread Name: Lyr Req: Out on the Rolling Sea (Joseph Spence)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: joseph spence - on a rolling sea
bbc, If this is you asking, I'll share what I can figure out. Yes it sounds incoherent, but there's a basic underlying structure (tho some of the verses are just jamming, with variations on the one before.
But look at it this way: there is a basic melody line, and there is a plot (the next verse talks about Peter telling people to get their nets). Tons of us sing "And I bid you goodnight" which originaly sounds a lot like this one.
But I wasn't sure if GUEST was a troll. Do you still live ther same place? I have a box sitting on the counter waiting to be mailed.
