We Rigged Our Ship

We Rigged Our Ship
(Cindy Kallet)

We rigged our ship with lines of silver
   Way, hey, and we'll all come down
And we set her sails in New England waters
   Way, hey, gonna bring her round

We scraped her decks till our backs were strong
And we caulked her seams with strands of oakum

We oiled her rails with hands of linseed
And we sailed her up to the Beaufort Sea

We sewed her sails with threads of seaweed
And we sailed her into Takoradi

We filled her decks with bales of hay
And we ran her down to Casco Bay

We filled her holds with rum for the winter
And we ran her into Oak Bluffs harbor

We rigged our ship with lines of silver
And we set her sails in New England waters
