T'was of the young maiden who lived all alone

She lived all alone on the shore-o

There was nothing she could find to comfort her mind

But to roam all alone on the shore shore shore

But to roam all alone on the shore


T'was of the young captain who sailed the salt sea

Let the wind blow high blow low-o

I will die I will die the young captain did cry

If I don't have that maid on the shore shore shore

If I don't have that maid on the shore


I have lots of silver I have lots of gold

I have lots of costly fare-o

I'll divide I'll divide with my jolly ship's crew

If they row me that maid on the shore shore shore

If they row me that maid on the shore


By subtle persuasion they got her aboard

Let the wind blow high blow low-o

And he placed her away in his cabin below

Here's adieu to all sorrow and care care care

Here's adieu to all sorrow and care


She sat herself down in his cabin below

Let the wind blow high blow low-o

Where she sang so soft and complete

She sang captain and sailors asleep sleep sleep

She sang captain and sailors to sleep


She robbed him of silver she robbed him of gold

She robbed him of costly fare-o

Then took his broadsword instead of an oar

And paddled her way to the shore shore shore

And paddled her way to the shore


Well me men must be crazy my men must be mad

My men must deep in despair-o

For to let you away with your beauty so gay

And to paddle your way to the shore shore shore

And to paddle your way to the shore


I deluded your sailors as well as yourself

I'm a maiden again on the shore shore shore
