Songs That Every Child Should Know 191
Tom never from his word departed,
His virtues were so rare, His friends were many and true-hearted,
His Poll was kind and fair; And then he 'd sing so blithe and jolly,
Ah! many 's the time, and oft, But mirth is turn'd to melancholy,
For Tom has gone aloft.
Yet shall poor Tom find pleasant weather
When He, who all commands, Shall give, to call life's crew together,
The word to pipe all hands. Thus death, who kings and tars despatches,
In vain Tom's life hath dofT'd, For though his body 's under hatches,
His soul has gone aloft
