Do any of you have the melody for "Maid On The Shore" in ABC form or regular music?

Terry

THE MAID ON THE SHORE

There was a young maiden, who lived all alone Her beauty it did shine so clear-o And all she could find for to ease her sad mind Was to wander alone on the shore the shore Was to wander alone on the shore (2x)

And there was a young captain, who plowed the salt seas Let the wind blow high, blow low-o This beautiful maiden he chanced for to spy "Don't I wish that I had her on board on board Don't I wish that I had her on board." (2x)

The steward he ran and he lowered the boat And quickly he rode it to shore o And these were the very first words he did say: "Fair maid, won't you venture on board on board? (2x)

By coaxing, persuading, she entered the boat And quickly he rowed her on board o Our captain, he smiled and spat out his chew Saying "Fair you well sorrow and care and care." (2x)

The captain he poured out the richery wine That sparked so bright and so clear-o Saying "First you will lie in my arms all this night, And then I'll hand you to my crew my crew" (2x)

"Oh thank you, oh thank you," this maiden replied "That's just what I've been waiting for-o. For I've grown so weary of my maidenhead As I wandered alone on the shore ."

She sat herself down in the stern of the ship Her voice was so fair and so clear-o She sang them so sweet, so neat and complete She sang captain and sailors to sleep."

She robbed them of silver, she robbed them of gold She robbed them of costly wares-o Our captain's broad sword, she used for an oar To row herself back to the shore. (2x)

"Oh were me men crazy, or were they all drunk? Oh were they sunk deep in despair-o? To see her get away with her beauty so gay Don't I wish that I had her once more."

And yonder she stands all alone on the strand A-waving her handkerchief, fair o Saying: "You are the captain that sails the salt seas And I'm still a maid on the shore the shore, And I am the maid on the shore."

the yet another digital tradition site can display the tunes in the DT as ABC, SongWright, PostScript, Lilypond, or a MIDI file; penny whistle or dulcimer tab

Hmm. The ABC Tunefinder does not know about it; I think that implies it isn't on Mudcat either--am I wrong?

Another slightly different version is at www.mp3.com/cauldron13
Is it a different melody, too? MMario?

I LOVE the way they did it!

Nutty, it won't come up right because the DT is actually a database. So you would need to somehow link to the search term instead of to the search result.

It is enough to know that one can put the title in the search box, and get 3 songs with those words, and many threads discussing those words.
