Jack Went A-Sailing
18 So here's a handsome couple So quickly did agree. How stylish they got married, And why not you and me ?
2 This young lady she was courted By men of high degree ;
There was none but Jack the sailor Would ever do for she.
3 As soon as her waiting-maid Heard what she did say, She went unt© her father With her heart content.
4 Dear daughter, if this be true What I have heard of you, It's Jackie shall be vanished And you confined shall be.
5 This body you may have, My heart you can't confine; There's none but Jack the sailor That can have this heart of mine.
6 Poor Jackie, he's gone sailing With trouble on his mind, A-leaving of his country And darling girl behind.
