Subject: (A)sleep in the Deep
From: Wally Macnow
Date: 30 Nov 98 - 10:02 AM

I'm looking for a song for a Canadian friend. His dad used to sing it in Cape Breton. The opening line is "Many brave hearts are asleep in the deep" Any ideas?

Actually, that's the last line:
"Many brave hearts are asleep in the deep, so beware, be.. (drops to low F)ware."
My uncle, who was in the navy used to sing it, it's a performance piece, religious, and is for Basso Profundo.
Maybe someone can come up with the rest of the words.
Blessings,
Barbara

This song MUST be sung by a deep, deep voice. For those of us who only sing in the shower, Asleep in the Deep is THE song!!

I found the complete lyrics and sheet music to the song at the marvelous Duke University site. Go to http://scriptorium.lib.duke.edu/sheetmusic/ and do a search on "asleep" in the title.

Now, will some guru explain to me how to add a "click here" link to a post? Do I need a special HTML editor?

well, here it is..(I think)..(wonder why Steve didnt just type it out..it's only 150 characters or so..*grin*

click here

Steve ..the 'formula' looks like this...but with angle brackets < > instead of square ones [ ]

[a href=address]click[/a} what I did was copy the address and 'paste' it into the formula, replacing 'address' with thos 150+ characters the word 'click' is replaced with anything you wish...here is the same link with the entire address replacing the word 'click'...just pasted it into BOTH places in the formula...

(gee, I hope I did it all right!)

For any of you that don't want to wade through the 300K a page, here are the words.

ASLEEP IN THE DEEP
(words, Arthur Lamb, music Henry W. Petrie c 1897)

1. Stormy the nights and the waves roll high,
Bravely the ship doth ride;
Hark! While the lighthouse bells' solemn cry
Rings o'er the sullen tide.
There on the deck see two lovers stand
Heart to heart beating, and hand in hand,
Tho' death be near, she knows no fear
While at her side is one of all most dear...

REFRAIN:
Loudly the bell in the old tower rings
Bidding us list to the warning it brings
Sailor take care, sailor take care
Danger is near to thee, Beware! Beware!
Beware! Beware!
Many brave hearts are asleep in the deep, so beware, beware!
Many brave hearts are asleep in the deep, so beware, beware!

2. What of the storm when the night is o'er?
There is no trace or sign!
Save where the wreckage hath strewn the shore.
Peaceful the sun doth shine.
But when the wild raging storm did cease
Under the billows two hearts found peace, No
more to part, no more of pain
The bell may now toll its warning in vain...

Refrain.
