Thread Name: Songs of the Sailor and Lumberman
Subject: Lyr Add: THE SCOW ON COWDEN SHORE (3)
(from the singing of Charlie Chamberlin)
(Doerflinger - 'Songs of the Sailor and Lumberman' - pp235-236)

Mi-chael Hayd'n and Pat-rick Bug-gy on night got ver-y drug-gy,
Oh, the night was sark and fog-gy, you could hear the dead-ly roar;
There were men from Ri-chi-buc-to and more brom O-ro-moc-to,
Res-ti-gouch-ers and Pug-moosh-ers and Mac-Don-alds by the score

He could make a song and sing it, and into rhyme he'd bring it,
And the ti-tle I will give the tune is 'Fair-bank Bul-la-more'
There were men of dif-ferent ra-ces with their pale and swarth-y fa-ces,
and they were hard men to con-quer on the scow on Cow-en shore.
