|Blow Ye Winds|
|Public Domain - Adapt. by C. Carson Parks|
|Verse 1 ‘Tis advertised in Boston, New York and
“500 Brave Americans a-whaling for to go.”
Chorus Singin' “Blow ye winds in the morning, blow ye winds hi-ho
Heave away your running gear and blow, boys, blow!”
Verse 2 They'll tell you of the clipper ships a-running in and out
And say you'll take 500 whale before you're six months out.
Verse 3 And now we're out to sea my boys, the wind comes on to blow
Half the watch is sick on deck, the other half below
Verse 4 The skipper's on the quarterdeck, a-squinting at the sails,
When , up above, the lookout sights a mighty school of whales.
Verse 5 Then lower down the boats my boys, and after him we'll travel.
But if you get too near his flukes, he'll kick you to the devil
