Maine Lumberjacks             89
Chorus. My curse rest on that captain That parted my love and me.
5     There will ne'er a sash go round my waist
Nor a comb go in my hair, Neither fire, coal, nor candlelight To show my beauty fair.
Chorus. My curse rest on that captain That parted my love and me.
6     And neither will I married be
Until the day I dee, Since stormy winds and cruel waves Have parted my love from me.
Chorus. My curse rest on that captain That sailed the stormy seas.
