Thread Name: Lyr Add: The Lady Maria (Dave Robinson)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: THE LADY MARIA
I have amended the last two verses to include the sad loss of three of the Maria's crew.

But now on the rocks between Rump's Point and Pentire,
The Lady Maria has a watery grave.
John Shannon, Anne Taylor and Emily MacFarlane
Were lost with The Lady, dashed by the cruel waves.

No more will she grace the ports that embraced her,
No more will she sail all on the wild sea.
But The Lady Maria will ne'er be forgotten
By those sailed on her and landsmen like me.

Dave Robinson.
