Subject: Lyr Req: Gordon Bok - Jericho - Lyrics Help?
From: GUEST,B.Fish
Date: 01 Mar 09 - 02:37 AM

I stumbled onto Gordon Bok by listening to my Pandora Station. "Jericho" from this 1972 album "Schooners" played when I logged on. I was instantly floored and hooked. Unfortunately, my google-fu is weak in trying to locate the lyrics. Can anyone assist?

Go to Timberhead music web site. I'm sure Kathy will be able to help.

Here you are Guest B.Fish. Our group, Four 'n' Aft, sing it and we got the lyrics from "Schooners". Great Song - enjoy!


When she's a tight old staver
you do all you can to save her
When she drops her dear old transom
Time to pack your bags and leave her.

        Ho-ro the wind and snow
        Flying o'er the Jericho
        When the stormy winds do blow
        Swing her off and let her go

Here's to her lodgin' knees
And her bobstays if you please
Here's to her trestle trees
May they never leave her

When the fog is on the punkin
And you hear them bells a-tunkin'
Just remember mama's warning
Keep her off the rockpiles darlin'

Here's to the dear old lady
Here's to her paint and putty
Here's to her chainplates darlin'
May they keep her all together

Keep her full and keep her going
Never jibe her when it's blowing
There ain't no way of knowing
When she's going to tear it darlin'

Don't you go down to the city
Tho the women all be pretty
They'll take your money darlin'
Oh, and they'll reef your mainsail!

So here's to her garboard strakes
And the water that she makes
When to the pumps we takes
Just to let her know we loves her
