Davy Lowston sheet music for Treble Clef Instrument
Landscape view? Pause before start?
Me name was Davy Lowston, I did seal, I did seal
Me name was Davy Lowston, I did seal
Oh, me men and I were lost,
though our very lives it cost,
We did seal, We did seal, We did seal
We were set down in Open bay, we were set down, we were set down
Dawn, we were set down in Open bay, we were set down
We were left, we gallant men, nevermore to sail again,
Nevermore, nevermore, nevermore
Our captain John McGraw, he set sail, he set sail
Oh, yes, for old Port Stanley, he set sail
"I'll return, men, without fail", but he foundered in the gale,
And went down, and went down and went down
So come all you lads who venture far from home, far from home
So come all you lads who venture far from home
Where the icebergs tower high,
That's a pitiful place to die,
Never seal, never seal, never seal
(additional verse sung by June Tabor):
We cured ten thousand skins for the fur, for the fur
We cured ten thousand skins for the fur.
Brackish water, putrid sea, we did all of us fall ill
For to die, for to die, for to die.
Recorded by Carthy & Swarbrick on Byker Hill; by June Tabor on A Cut Above
