The Golden Vanity
8   I know that you've been just as good as your word, But never more will I take you on board,
As we sailed upon the low-de-lands deep.
9   If it wasn't for the love that I have for your girl, I'd do unto you as I did unto them,
I'd sink you in the low-de-lands deep.
10 But he turned upon his back and down went he, Down, down, down to the bottom of the sea, As they sailed upon the low-de-lands deep.
2   There was another ship in the South Amerikee, She went by the name of the Turkey Silveree, As she sailed in the Lowlands low.
3   O captain, O captain, what will you give to me To sink the ship of the Golden Willow Tree, As she sails in the Lowlands low ?
