Subject: Lyr Add: TO PENSACOLA TOWN WE'LL BID ADIEU
From: George Seto - af221@chebucto.ns.ca
Date: 13 Sep 02 - 09:41 PM

That second one which Masato referenced is:

    TO PENSACOLA TOWN WE'LL BID ADIEU / HOMEWARD BOUND
1
To Pensacola town we'll bid adieu,
To lovely Kate and pretty Sue.
Our anchor's weighed and our sails unfurled,
We're bound for to plough this watery world.

CHORUS: You know we're outward bound,
Hurrah, we're outward bound!

2
The wind blows hard from the east nor-east,
Our ship sails ten knots at least,
The skipper will our wants supply,
And while we've grog we'll ne'er say die.

3
And should we touch at Malabar,
Or any other port so far,
Our skipper will tip the chink,
And just like fishes we will drink.

4
And now our three years it is out,
It's very near time we back'd about;
And when we're home, and do get free,
O, won't we have a jolly spree.

5
And now we'll haul into the docks,
Where all the pretty girls come in flocks,
And one to the other they will say,
"Here comes Jack with his three years' pay!"

6
And now we'll haul to the "Dog and Bell,"
Where there's good liquor for to sell,
In comes old Archer with a smile,
Saying, "Drink, my lads, it's worth your while."

7
But when our money's all gone and spent,
And none to be borrowed nor none to be lent,
In comes old Archer with a frown,
Saying, "Get up, Jack, let John sit down."


    Note: These exact lyrics can by bound in American Sea Songs and Chanteys, by Frank Shay (Norton, 1948)

Subject: Lyr Add: HOMEWARD BOUND (Ian Campbell Folk Group)
From: GUEST,Roberto
Date: 30 Sep 02 - 05:30 AM

This is the version sung by the Ian Campbell Folk Group

HOMEWARD BOUND

To Liverpool docks we bid adieu,
To Suke, and Sal, and Kittie too.
The anchor's weighed. the sails unfurl.
We're bound to cross the watery world.

CHORUS: For you know we're homeward bound.
Hurrah, we're homeward bound.

The wind it blows from the east-nor'east.
Our ship will scud ten knots at least.
The purser will our wants supply,
So while with life we'll never say die. CHORUS

And should we touch at Malabar,
Or any other port as far,
Our purser he will tip the chink,
And just like fishes we will drink. CHORUS

And when we're hauled into Liverpool docks,
Them bloomers all come 'round in flocks.
Them pretty girls, we hear 'em say,
"Here comes Jack with his twelve-month pay." CHORUS

And when we get to the Dog and Bell,
Where there's good vittle for to sell,
In comes Archie with a smile.
"Drink up me lads, it's worth your while." CHORUS

And when Jack's money is gone and spent,
There's none to be borrowed, no more to be lent.
In comes Archie with a frown,
"Get up now, Jack. Let John sit down!"

CHORUS: For you know you're outward bound.
Hurrah, you're outward bound.

It may well have become a forebitter but it was written by William Upton for the stage in about 1790. See the Universal Songster.

At the Sunnyside Singers (in Queens, New York) there is an Irish fellow named Martin Daly who does a lovely version of this song, accompanying himself on the guitar. It's the version I'm most familiar with, and, of course, I've forgotten who Martin told me he got it from. (I believe it was Jimmy something-or-other, but I just can't recall anything more.)

Next time I see Martin I'll have to remind myself to ask him for the details.
