Come All You Bold Sailormen lyrics

Pete Seeger

Come all you bold sailormen, listen to me
I'll sing you a song of the fish of the sea

Blow you winds westerly, westerly blow
We're bound for the south'ard so steady she goes

First comes the bluefish a-wagging his tail
He comes off on deck and yells, "All hands make sail!"

Blow you winds westerly, westerly blow
We're bound for the south'ard so steady she goes

Next comes the eels with their nimble tails
They jumped up aloft and loosеd all the sails

Blow you winds westerly, wеsterly blow
We're bound for the south'ard so steady she goes

Next comes the porpoise with his short snout
He jumps on the bridge and yells, "Ready about!"

Blow you winds westerly, westerly blow
We're bound for the south'ard so steady she goes

Next comes the swordfish, the scourge of the sea
The order he gives us is "Helms a-lee!"

Blow you winds westerly, westerly blow
We're bound for the south'ard so steady she goes

Having accomplished these wonderful feats
The blackfish sings out next to "Ríse tacks and sheets"

Blow you winds westerly, westerly blow
We're bound for the south'ard so steady she goes

Then comes the mackerel with his striped back
He plopped on the bridge and yelled "Board the main tack"

Blow you winds westerly, westerly blow
We're bound for the south'ard so steady she goes

Then come the catfish with his chuckle-head
Out in the main chains for a heave of the lead

Blow you winds westerly, westerly blow
We're bound for the south'ard so steady she goes

Last comes the whale, the biggest of all
Singing out from the bridge, "All haul mainsail haul"

Blow you winds westerly, westerly blow
We're bound for the south'ard so steady she goes

Well, up jumps the fisherman, stalwart and grim
And with his big net, he scoops 'em all in

Blow you winds westerly, westerly blow
We're bound for the south'ard so steady she goes
