The Banks of Newfoundland





D G D A D

On St. Patrick's Day the seventeenth from New York we set sail.

D A D A

Kind fortune did favor us with a sweet and pleasant gale,

D A D A

We bore away from America; the wind being off the land.

G D G D A D

And with courage brave we plowed the waves bound down for NFLD.





D G D A D

Our Captain's name was Nelson just twenty years of age.

D A D A

As true and brave a sailor lad as ever plowed the waves.

D A D A

"The Evelyn" our brig was named belonging to MacLean.

G D G D A D

And with courage brave we plowed the waves bound down for NFLD.





D G D A D

Now when three days out to our surprise the Captain he falls sick

D A D A

In short he was not able to take his turn on deck

D A D A

The fever raged which made us think that death was close at hand,

G D G D A D

So we bore away from Halifax bound down for Newfoundland.





D G D A D

Now at three O'Clock we sighted a light that we were glad to see,

D A D A

The small pox had been raging; its what it proved to be,

D A D A

And at four O'Clock in the afternoon as sure as God's command,

G D G D A D

Oh he past away off Arichat bound down for Newfoundland.
