FISHERMEN'S EVENING SONG
Words: K T Sizer
A Breton folk song (for Solo(S) & Chorus(Ch))


(S) One song, my comrades, ere we go,
(Ch) Listen to the glad waves' call.
(S) The tide runs high, the sun sinks low.
(Ch) Listen to the wild waves call.
(S) We toil while others sleep.
(Ch) Hark they call, wild waves call.
(S) Far sailing o'er the deep.
(Ch) Listen to the deep waves' call.

(S) One cheer, my comrades, ere we go,
(Ch) Listen to the glad waves' call.
(S) A Breton fisher fears no foe.
(Ch) Listen to the wild waves call.
(S) 'Mid rocks and whirlpools dread.
(Ch) Hark they call, wild waves call.
(S) Boldly we seek our bread.
(Ch) Listen to the deep waves' call.

(S) One look, my comrades, ere we go,
(Ch) Listen to the glad waves' call.
(S)Our seaport town lies safe and low,.
(Ch) Listen to the wild waves call.
(S) Sleep soft, dear friends, at home.
(Ch) Hark they call, wild waves call.
(S) Sleep, while we cross the foam..
(Ch) Listen to the deep waves' call.

(S) One pray'r, my comrades, ere we go,
(Ch) Listen to the glad waves' call.
(S) For waves may roar and tempests blow.
(Ch) Listen to the wild waves call.
(S) Lord, let thy strong arm be
(Ch) Hark they call, wild waves call.
(S) Round all who toil at sea.
(Ch) Listen to the deep waves' call.

Thanks again, Nigel. It's a good tune worth promulgating. I've been looking for music to play on my flute, and this will be a good addition to the collection.

If there's anyone reading this who would like to see the tune in conventional music notation (sticks & dots) you can get it by copying the abc above, (from the X to the ||) and going to this page:

http://www.concertina.net/tunes_convert.htm

Then simply follow the directions.

Stephen Leek and Lloyd Conley also arranged this song (or one with the same title).

I was taught this song in primary school over 50 years ago but I could only remember the tune and the line "A Breton fisher fears no foe".

I was having a discussion about Bretons with an old friend earlier tonight. He was at school with me but couldn't remember anything about the song. I googled the line I remembered and found the words. Absolutely marvellous. Are there any recordings of it, perhaps on youtube?
