Abstract

Come sit thee down, my bonny, bonny, love;
Come sit the down by me love,
And I will tell thee many a tale,
Of the dangers of the sea.
Of the perils of the deep love
Where angry tempests roar;
And the raging billows wildly dash,
Upon the groaning shore.
And the raging billos wildly dash,
Upon the groaning shore
Come sit the down, my bonny, bonny, love,
Come sit thee down by me love,
And I will tell thee many a tale,
of the dangers of the sea.

The skies are flaming red my love,
The skies are flaming red love.
And darkly rolls the mountain wave
And rears its mountains head
While skies and ocean blending
And bitter howls the last
And the daring Tar 'twixt life and death
Clings to the shatter'd mast.
Come sit thee down, my bonny bonny love,
Come sit thee down by me love,
And I will tell thee many a tales
Of the dangers of the sea.
