Henry Martin - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

Written by:Secunda/Traditional

There were three brothers in merry Scotland

 

In merry Scotland there were three

And they did cast lots which of them should go

 

Should go should go

 

And turn robber all on the salt sea

 

The lot it fell first upon Henry Martin

The youngest of all the three

That he should turn robber all on the salt sea

Salt sea the salt sea

For to maintain his two brothers and he

 

They had not been sailing but a long winter's night

 

And a part of a short winter's day

 

When he espied a stout lofty ship

Lofty ship lofty ship

 

Come bibbing down on him straight way

 

Hello hello cried Henry Martin

What makes you sail so nigh

I'm a rich merchant ship bound for fair London Town

London Town London Town

 

Would you please for to let me pass by

Oh no oh no cried Henry Martin

This thing it never could be

For I have turned robber all on the salt sea

Salt sea the salt sea

For to maintain my two brothers and me

Come lower your tops'l and brail up your mizz'n

And bring your ship under my lee

Or I will give you a full cannon ball

 

Cannon ball cannon ball

 

And all your dear bodies drown in the salt sea

 

Oh no we won't lower our lofty topsail

Nor bring our ship under your lee

And you shan't take from us our rich merchant goods

Merchant goods merchant goods

 

Nor point our bold guns to the sea

 

Then broadside and broadside and at it they went

For fully two hours or three

Till Henry Martin gave to them deathshot

 

The deathshot the deathshot

 

And straight to the bottom went she

 

Bad news bad news to old England came

Bad news to fair London Town

There's been a rich vessel and she's cast away

 

Cast away cast away

 

And all of her merry men drowned
