One More Day 2

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.
