Our Captain Calls Our captain calls all hands To sail tomorrow. Leaves many a fair pretty girl In grief and sorrow. What makes you go abroad Fighting for strangers, When you could stop at home Free from all dangers? When I had gold in store You did invite me Now that I'm low and poor You seems to slight me Dry off your brandy tears And leave off weeping For happy shall we be At our next meeting You courted me a while Just to deceive me Now my heart you have gained You mean to leave me Saying there's no belief in man Not my own brother So girls if you can love Love one another. from Seeds of Love, Sedley Recorded by Carthy/Swarbrick on Byker Hill RG
