Subject: Lyr Req: Ballad of Gipsy Moth IV - Pennine Folk

The Pennine Folk appeared on numerous Beeb folk programmes such as Country Meets Folk, Folk on Friday, etc.

http://genome.ch.bbc.co.uk/search/0/20?adv=0&q=pennine+folk#search

On one of these they sang the Ballad of Gypsey Moth IV about Sir Francis Chichester's circumnavigation of the world.

The chorus went:

Hey ho, roll an go,
In the months of rain and snow,
How many times can a man defy,
The raging seas and the rolling sky?

As a tall ship sailor who has survived many storms - mainly in or around the North Sea (Christian Radich), Bay of Biscay (Christian Radich), St. Kilda (Sir Winston Churchill), and the English Channel (HM Bark Endeavour)!! - I can well imagine this scenario.

Sorry, can't find anything to help other than your post from 2014, which adds that it was written by Ken Campbell
