Urmăriți Bonnie Ship The Diamond de la Wolfstone

lyric

Oh the Diamond is a ship me lads, for the Davis strait she's bound And the key it is all garnished wae bonnie lassies round Captain Thompson gees the orders, to sail the ocean wide Where the sun it never sets me lads, and darkness dims the sky Oh the Diamond is a ship me lads, for the Davis strait she's bound And the key it is all garnished wae bonnie lassies round Captain Thompson gees the orders, to sail the ocean wide Where the sun it never sets me lads, and darkness dims the sky All along the key at Peterhead, the lassies stand around Wae their shawls aw poo'd aboot them, and their sawt tears runnin' doon Oh don't you weep my bonnie lass though you be left behind For the rose will grow on Greenland's ice before we change your mind And it's cheer up my lads Let your hearts never fail For the bonnie ship the Diamond Here's a health to the Resolution and likewise the Eliza Swan Here's a health to the Battler o' Montrose and the Diamond ship o' fame We wear the troosers o' the white and the jackets o' the blue When we return tae Peterhead we'll hae sweethearts anew And it's cheer up my lads Let your hearts never fail For the bonnie ship the Diamond Goes a fishing for the whale My heart has been torn from me and I am bleeding My soul has been wrent from me and I am crying All the beauty around my fades and I am screaming I am the last of the great Whales, and I am dying It'll be bricht both the day and nicht when the Greenland lads come hame Wae a ship that's full of oil me lads money tae oor name We'll mak the cradles for tae rock and the blankets for tae tear And every lass in Peterhead sing 'hushabye my dear'
