Maine Lumberjacks            81
4      "Oh, no, oh no!" said Andrew Martine,
"Oh no, that never can be! Your ship and your cargo we '11 all take away, And your bodies give to the salt sea!"
5      The news it came to merry England,
And to King George's ears, And he did fit out a nice little band, For to catch this Andrew Martine.
6      "Oh, who are you?" said Captain Charles Stuart,
"Who are you that comes tossing so high?" "I am a brave ship from merry Scotland, Will you please for to let me pass by?"
7      "Oh, no, oh no!" said Captain Charles Stuart,
"Oh, no that never can be! Your ship and your cargo we 11 all take away, And your bodies give to the salt sea."
8      They fought and fought, and fought again,
Until the light did appear, And where was Andrew, and all his brave crew? Their bodies were in the salt sea.
