Martin Carthy And Dave Swarbrick - Davy Lowston lyrics

Oh me name is Davy Lowston, I did seal, I did seal,
Oh me name is Davy Lowston, I did seal.
Though 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, were set down, were set down,
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 McGrath, he set sail, he set sail,
Oh yes for old Port Stanley he set sail.
"I'll return, men, without fail,"
But she 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,
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.
