I can only find one passing reference to this on MudCat. I'm lloking for the tune. Also for the composer/lyricsist

Lyrics as I have been given them are:
normal text = together
bold = male
italic = female

Marblehead morning, coloured cobblestone grey
Coming on stront to a New England Day
The harbour's a forest of tall sailing trees
Getting ready to sail on the midmorning breeze.

Fair is my captain, I long to tell him so
Haul away, Heave away, he's going to sail away
Good times are passing by, high tide is running
Haul away, heave away, he's going to sail away


Farewell good Janelle
How I wish I could stay
Good bye first love of mine
Look for my sail on the first day of May.


For 300 yeatrs of going to sea
The Marblehead men left their women to keep
a close watch upon the fine line between
the blue of the sky and the green of the sea

Fair is my captain, I long to tell him so
Haul away, Heave away, he's going to sail away
Good times are passing by, high tide is running
Haul away, heave away, he's going to sail away


Farewell good Janelle
How I wish I could stay
Good bye first love of mine
Look for my sail on the first day of May


It's a marblehead mourning coloured cobblestone grey
As long as I'm gone, I'll remember today
I'll look for your sail on the first day of May
