Maine Lumberjacks            57
Now a shanty-boy, I do love the best, And I never will deny the same,
For his heart scorneth those conceity beaus, That call it a disgraceful name.
4 It makes me, indeed, my very heart to bleed, To see the danger, he daily does stand, But all this he will repay, in some future happy day,
When joined in wedlock band. All rafting he'll give o'er, and anchor safe on shore,
Lead a quiet and sober life, Never more will he roam, from his peaceful, happy home, But he'll marry him a pretty little wife.
