Jack Hinks

Ah, when Jack comes ashore

He's got money galore

And he's seldom cut short of a job

He can dress now as well

As any can tell

With a good silver watch in his fob



Poor Jack in his life

Was ne'er paired with a wife

Though sometimes with lasses he links

He's a seafaring sailmate

Can gambol a caper

Grog drinking hero, Jack Hinks

Oh, Jack Hinks



When inclined for to spend

He walks with a friend

And with pleasure he sits himself down

He tips off his glass

And he winks at the lass

And he smiles if she happens to frown



And like a ramblin' true blue

When the rent becomes due

On the table the money he clinks

He's a seafaring sailmate

Can gambol a caper

Grog drinking hero, Jack Hinks



Round home the other fall

We fell into a squall

Now the northermost head of Cape Freels

We were washed away

Without further delay

At the thought how my spirit it chills



We were bashed on the rocks

Like a hard hunted fox

Of death and destruction he thinks

He's a seafaring sailmate

Can gambol a caper

Grog drinking hero, Jack Hinks

Oh, Jack Hinks



Jack without fail

Was out in that same gale

Having drove across Bonavist Bay

Oh Neptune did sail

As he handed all sail

And he had his two spars cut away



Oh, but Providence kind so eases the wind

And on sailors so constantly thinks

He saved

That seafaring sailmate

Can gambol a caper



That seafaring sailmate

Can gambol a caper

That seafaring sailmate

Can gambol a caper

Grog drinking hero, Jack Hinks
