Ballads and Songs
i. There was a little ship In the North Amerikee And it went by the name of The Merry Golden Tree, As she sailed on the lonesome Lowlands low, As she sailed on the lonesome sea.
2.  There was another ship In the North Amerikee
And she went by the name of
The Turkey Revelee
And she sailed on the lonesome Lowlands low,
And she sailed on the lonesome sea.
3. "O captain, O captain, What will you give to me
To go and sink yon Turkey Revelee And sink her in the sea, As she sails on the lonesome Lowlands low, As she sails on the lonesome sea ?"
4 "I'll give you money, I'll pay your fee; I have a loving daughter that I'll marry unto thee,
If you sink her in the lonesome Lowlands low, If you sink her in the lonesome sea."
5. He bowed to his breast And away swam he. He swum till he come To the Turkey Revelee, As she sailed on the lonesome Lowlands low, As she sailed on the lonesome sea.
