Lowlands of Holland 2 The night that I was married And lay in marriage bed Up came a bold sea captain And stood at my bedhead Saying, "Rise, arise, new wedded man And come along with me To the lowlands of Holland For to face your enemy" Now Holland is a lovely land And in it grows fine grain It is a place of residence For soldiers to remain Where the sugar cane is plentiful And the tea grows on each tree I never had but the one sweetheart And he's far away from me For the stormy winds began to blow And the seas did loudly roar And the captain or his gallant ship Was never seen no more Says the mother to the daughter "Leave off your sore lament There's men enough in Galway For to be your heart's content" There's men enough in Galway But, alas, there's none for me Since the high winds and rolling seas Parted my love and me Child #92 recorded by Peg Clancy Power SOF
