Subject: Lyr Add: A SHIP SET SAIL FOR NORTH AMERICA
From: Roberto
Date: 08 Apr 04 - 12:44 PM

Ollie Jacobs, A SHIP SET SAIL FOR NORTH AMERICA (Child #286), on Child Ballads Traditional in the United States vol.II, edited by Bertrand H. Bronson, Long Playong Records AAFS L58.

I think I got it all right, except for stanza 5. Please, help. Thanks. R

A ship set sail for North America
And she went by the name of the Turkish Revelee
As she sailed along the lonesome lowlands low
As she sailed along the lowlands sea

There was another ship in the North Country
And she went by the name of the Golden Willow Tree
As she sailed upon the lonesome lowlands low
As she sailed upon the lowlands sea

Captain, oh captain, what will you give me
If I overtake her and sink her in the sea
If I'll sink her in the lonesome lowlands low
If I'll sink her in the lowlands sea

I have a house and I have land
And I have a daughter that will be at your command
If you'll sink her in the lonesome lowlands low
If you'll sink her in the lowlands sea

I have a little tool just fitted for the use
??? Pouring for salt water and letting in the slews ???????
As she sails upon the lonesome lowlands low
As she sails upon the lowlands sea

He fell upon his back and away swam he
Until he overtaken the Golden Willow Tree
As she sailed along the lonesome lowlands low
As she sailed along the lowlands sea

Some with their hats and some with their caps
Trying to stop the salt water gaps
As she sailed along the lonesome lowlands low
As she sailed along the lowlands sea

He fell upon his back and away swam he
Until he overtaken the Turkish Revelee
As she sailed along the lonesome lowlands low
As she sailed along the lowlands sea

Captain, o captain, take me on board
And be to me as good as your word
For I've sunk her in the lonesome lowlands low
For I've sunk her in the lowlands sea

Neither will I take you on board
Nor be to you as good as my word
Though you've sunk her in the lonesome lowlands low
Though you've sunk her in the lowlands sea

If it wasn't for the love I have for your men
I would serve you as I've served them
I would sink you in the lonesome lowlands low
I would sink you in the lowlands sea
