One More Day 2 Oh row me 'cross the river I heard a maiden say Oh take me to me lover One more day Cho: Only one more day, me Johnnys One more day Oh rock and roll me over One more day I'm almost broken hearted I can no longer stay Once more must we be parted One more day Cho: So do not fear my beauty I can no longer stay And love makes way for duty One more day Cho: I've seen the sea birds flyin' Ashore from o'er the bay I felt they was all cryin' One more day Cho: 'Cause sea birds get the warnin' Which one and all obey The tempest loud is stormin' One more day Cho: So heave onside the anchor We sail out from the bay Oh heave onside the anchor One more day Cho: Unlike Colcord's version of the homeward bound shanty in the DT, this version, recorded by Lime Bay Mutiny in 1990, on their Live at the Blue Peter album, appears to be a leaving shanty. There is nothing in the liner notes regarding from where it was collected. It does not appear in the collections of Whall, Run ciman Terry or Shay. MC apr00
