Mudcatters (and fans of Gordon Bok) -

Here are my 'cliff notes' on the concert last night. For attendees and fans, I would appreciate filling out the Song Titles from the clues given here -

1. Lord John Gordon (ballad)
2. 'Song about schooners' - Hesper (sw - Lois Lyman)
3. Berry (or Berries)
4. Tom Gunnell (from New Yorker poem by Hillary Clarke)
5. Jane Barnes (great ballad from the Oregon Coast, circa 1816)
6. 'Rackers Prayer' (?)
7. St. John River
8. Johnny Stewart (sw Chris Buck)
9. missing....
10. 'St. Patrick's Day Song' - hilarious
    ("because all the Whiskey is Gone")
11. The Angelos(?) - poem by Elizabeth Stane (sp)
12. Walter's Garden (sw - Nick Berringer)
13. 'Song about schooners' - Thayer & Johnston, Great Banks and
    Georgia Shoals
14. missing....('this way, bring out the harbor')
15. Edward Marriott ballad - 'odds, bods, hammer and tongs'
    credits to Bob Zentz, Master & Commander
16. Where the Cane Fires Burn (sw Bill Scott)
17. Encore 'take away the days...'

OK. These are my notes. It's always a challenge to capture a title
from a lyric you are not familiar with (and write it down in the dark).

Great show.
Thanks to the FSGW organizers

#17 (the encore) was Gordon's own song, "Clear Away in the Morning"

A fine concert, indeed!

I saw Gordon at Woods Hole last evening; and he sang a song from ??? Marryat - ie. he could not remember the poets first name.

It was Frederick, and the poem is shown below, and he is best known for his books "Children of The New Forest."

Tim Radford

THE CAPTAIN STOOD ON THE CARRONADE

[61]
The Captain stood on the carronade—"First lieutenant," says he,
"Send all my merry men aft here, for they must list to me,
I haven't the gift of the gab, my sons—because I'm bred to the sea;
That ship there is a Frenchman, who means to fight with me.
Odds blood, hammer and tongs, long as I've been to sea,
I've fought 'gainst every odds—but I've gained the victory.

That ship there is a Frenchman, and if we don't take she,
'T is a thousand bullets to one, that she will capture we;
I haven't the gift of the gab, my boys, so each man to his gun;
If she's not mine in half an hour, I'll flog each mother's son.
Odds bobs, hammer and tongs, long as I 've been to sea,
I've fought 'gainst every odds, and I've gained the victory.

We fought for twenty minutes when the Frenchmen had enough.
"I little thought," said he, "that your men were of such stuff."
[62]
The Captain took the Frenchman's sword, a low bow made to he;
I haven't the gift of the gab, Monsieur, but polite I wish to be.
Odds bobs, hammer and tongs, long as I've been to sea,
I've fought 'gainst every odds, and I've gained the victory."

Our Captain sent for all of us, "My merry men," said he,
"I haven't the gift of the gab, my lads, but yet I thankful be;
You've done your duty handsomely, each man stood to his gun;
If you hadn't, you villains, as sure as day, I'd have flogged each mother's son.
Odds bobs, hammer and tongs, as long as I'm at sea
I'll fight 'gainst every odds—and I'll gain the victory."
—FREDERICK MARRYAT.
