The Bay of Biscay-O Of all the harbors, east or west, There is one port that I love best; So whichever way the wind doth blow I'll steer for the bonny Bay of Biscay-O. cho: For the girl I love is waiting there With her eyes of blue and her golden hair, So I eastward hi, and westward ho But return to the bonny Bay of Biscay-O! At night in my hammock I will sleep As I sail upon the briny deep, Though the tempests rage and the wild winds blow I'll dream of the bonny Bay of Biscay-O. cho: In one more year, I will settle down With my bride in this free seaport town, She is sweeter and dearer by far, I know Than the wind of the bonny Bay of Biscay-O. (Collected by Frank Warner from Mrs. Lena Bourne Fish; recorded by Warner on Hudson Valley Folk Songs, DISC Records, late 1940's) Copyright Anne Warner RG
