Brewster: Ballads and Songs of Indiana            203
5.   "O Mother, where's that stranger came here last night to
dwell?" "He's dead and safe in sea harbor, and you no tales must tell; He's dead and safe in sea harbor; his gold will make a show. We sent his body a-sinking down in the lowland low."
