Our Captain Cried All Hands Our captain cried all hands, we sail tomorrow And leave these girls behind to grieve and sorrow Why do you go abroad, fighting for strangers When you could be safe at home, free from all danger You courted me a while just to deceive me Now my heart you have gained, you mean to leave me There's no belief in men, not my own brother So girls if you can love, love one another When I had gold in store you did invite me Now that I'm low and poor you seem to slight me I'll dry my wasted tears and leave off weeping For happy we shall be at our next meeting Farewell to all my friends, father and mother I am your only child, you'll ne'er get another There's no belief in men, not my own brother So girls if you can love, love one another AJS
