Somebody emailed these lyrics to me. They're a transcription from a recording from the Shantygroup ?Ship?n Whales? Norway!. Anybody know where the song comes from? Any corrections?

THESE OLD WOODEN BARS

Stamp your feet boys, one more blow
Round the capstan let it go
Make it work lads, hear us sing
Give the devil one more swing

These old wooden bars got a hold on us, never let us go,
These old wooden bars got a hold on us
Let us go, let us go, let us go

Well stamp your feet boys, keep up the pace
Forget the grin on the old man's face
To hell with the good boys, make him do the walk
To hold Davey Jones for to have a talk

These old wooden bars got a hold on us, never let us go,
These old wooden bars got a hold on us
Let us go, let us go, let us go

Well keep the fate boys, walk the ring
Acheny (???) and pain is the sweetest thing
We won?t brake down, we won?t give in
We?ll give the devil one more swing
Give the devil one more swing

These old wooden bars got a hold on us, never let us go,
These old wooden bars got a hold on us
Let us go, let us go, let us go

Stamp your feet boys, one more blow
Round the capstan let it go
Make it work lads, hear us sing
Give the devil one more swing

These old wooden bars got a hold on us, never let us go,
These old wooden bars got a hold on us
Let us go, let us go, let us go
