Concerning Charlie Horse
traditional

Come all ye friends I‘ll sit you down
And sing an oleful ditty,
T‘was on a day in April month
We started from the city
We planned a day or two at Mahers
We stalwart men were chosen
To remove ol‘ Charlie from Angle Pond,
Who fell in when the pond was frozen.

We seven men came roaring down
On the road to Roaches Line,
We might have stopped in Avondale or Brigus might have been fine,
We was hungry as sin but we never stopped in
Nor took any time to park us,
We all of us knew that we must get through to remove old Charlie‘s carcass.

Here‘s to Charlie Horse, here‘s to Shave the Master
No better horse ne‘er ran the course nor pulled the logs more faster,
Here‘s to Charlie Horse and I wants ye all to know,
Charlie‘s gone to the big corral where all good horses go.

In the car was Ol‘ Pocket Comb and beside him Old Moose Coosten,
And Barracuda Bill and Jimmy Clark in the back seat he was roostin‘
There was Smiley Stubborn and the Mounted Police
It wasn‘t hard to find him,
And Johnny Pollack and Sagebrush Sam was sitting right in beside him.
Kevin and Buck was also there, but they brought some brawn and brains,
They was aiming to help as best they could to remove old Chuck‘s remains,
Charlie was like a brother to Shave and he loved him well of course,
Charlie was a very good man you see although he‘d been a horse.

Here‘s to Charlie Horse, here‘s to Shave the Master
No better horse ne‘er ran the course nor pulled the logs more faster,
Here‘s to Charlie Horse and I want ye all to know,
Charlie‘s gone to the big corral where all good horses go.

Now I‘ll spare you all the gruesome details
And just relate the end.
With two stout doors and a few strong ropes
We removed old Shady‘s friend,
We gave him a decent send off with all our hats removed,
So long as we helped old Shave and his friend, our loyalty was proved.
Somewhere up in the great beyond his eyes are shining bright,
Charlie nods an approving nod cause he knows we did him right.
Shave will join him there one day and he‘ll bring the harness leather,
And so and for all of eternity they‘ll pull the logs together.

Here‘s to Charlie Horse, here‘s to Shave the Master
No better horse ne‘er ran the course nor pulled the logs more faster,
Here‘s to Charlie Horse and I want ye all to know,
Charlie‘s gone to the big corral where all good horses go.

Mermaid
traditional

Well I was a lad in the fishing town
An old man said to me
You can spend your life, your jolly life just sailing on the seas
You can search the world fro pretty girls till your eyes are weak and dim
But don’t go searching for a mermaid son if you don’t know how to swim

Cause her hair was green as seaweed
Her skin was blue and pale
Her face it was a work of art
I love that girl with all my heart
But I only liked the upper part
I did not like the tail

So I signed on to a whaling ship
My first very day at sea
I seen a mermaid in the waves
Reaching out to me
Come live with me in the sea she said
Down on the ocean floor
I’ll show you a million wondrous things that you never seen before

So over I jumped and she pulled me down
Down to her seaweed bed
And a pillow made of a turtle shell she placed beneath my head
She fed me shrimp and caviar upon a silver dish
From her head to her waist it was just my taste
But the rest of her was a fish

Cause her hair was green as seaweed
Her skin was blue and pale
Her face it was a work of art
I love that girl with all my heart
I only liked the upper part
I did not like the tail

But then one day she swam away
So I sang to the clams and the whales
Oh how I miss her seaweed hair
And the silver shine of her scales
But then her sister she swam by
And set my heart awhirl
Cause her upper part was an ugly fish
But her bottom part was a girl

Yes her hair is green as seaweed
Her skin is blue and pale
Her legs they are a work of art
I love that girl with all my heart
I don’t give a damn about the upper part
Cause that’s how I get my TAIL

Scolding Wife
Well I came into a scolding wife a few short years ago
And ever since I lead a life of misery and woe
My wife she is a tyrant around the ??
Ah I'd sell her to the devil for a glass or two of gin

Sure I'll get up and go to work as mild as any man
And she'll get up and dress herself and go and have her dram
And I chance to say a word it's well I know my due
She'll follow me with the fire shovel up and down the room

And if the devil'd take her I'd thank him for his pain
I swear to God I'll hang meself if I get married again
And if the devil'd take her I'd thank him for his pain
Though I swear to God I'll hang myself if I get married again

When I get up at breakfast time she'll tap me on the head
When I come home at dinner time I'll find her drunk in bed
When I come home at supper time at patience I must stop
'Cause she drinks what's in the teapot and I must drink the slop

And if the devil'd take her I'd thank him for his pain
I swear to God I'll hang meself if I get married again
And if the devil'd take her I'd thank him for his pain
Though I swear to God I'll hang myself if I get married again

Well once I asked me scolding wife if I could go to bed
She scare gave me an hour on the pillow to lay me head
When like a roarin' lion she came bustin' down the door
She caught me by the middle and threw me naked on the floor

And if the devil'd take her I'd thank him for his pain
I swear to God I'll hang meself if I get married again
And if the devil'd take her I'd thank him for his pain
Though I swear to God I'll hang myself if I get married again

Now me and my companions go to a public place
She'll search around the neighbourhood until she finds my face
She'll hoist me up in ridicule before the company
Sayin' 'Petticoats is your master and forever more shall be'

And if the devil'd take her I'd thank him for his pain
I swear to God I'll hang meself if I get married again
And if the devil'd take her I'd thank him for his pain
Though I swear to God I'll hang myself if I get married again

And if the devil'd take her I'd thank him for his pain
I swear to God I'll hang meself if I get married again
And if the devil'd take her I'd thank him for his pain
Though I swear to God I'll hang myself if I get married again

And if the devil'd take her I'd thank him for his pain
I swear to God I'll hang meself if I get married again
And if the devil'd take her I'd thank him for his pain
Though I swear to God I'll hang myself if I get married again

Sonny's Dream

Sonny don't go away, I am here all alone
And your Daddy's a sailor who never comes home
And the nights are so long and the silence goes on
And I'm feelin' so tired, I'm not all that strong

Sonny lives on a farm, in a wide open space
Kick off your sneakers
and let go the race
And you can lay down your head
by a sweet river bed
But Sonny always remembers
what it was his Mama said

Sonny don't go away, I am here all alone
And your Daddy's a sailor who never comes home
And the nights are so long and the silence goes on
And I'm feelin' so tired, I'm not all that strong

Sonny carries a load, though he's barely a man
There ain't much to do, yet he does what he can
He watches the sea from a room by the stairs
The waves keep on rollin'
They've done that for years

Sonny don't go away, I am here all alone
And your Daddy's a sailor who never comes home
And the nights are so long and the silence goes on
And I'm feelin' so tired, I'm not all that strong

It's a hundred miles to town,
Sonny's never been there
Yet he goes to the highway
and stands there and stares
And the mail comes at four,
and the mailman is old
But he still keeps his dreams
full of silver and gold

Sonny don't go away, I am here all alone
And your Daddy's a sailor who never comes home
And the nights are so long and the silence goes on
And I'm feelin' so tired, I'm not all that strong

Sonny's dreams can't be real,
they're just stories he's read
They're just stars in his eyes,
they're just dreams in his head
Still he longs in his mind for the wild world outside
And I know I can't hold him though I've tried, and
I've tried, and I've tried

Sonny don't go away, I am here all alone
And your Daddy's a sailor who never comes home
And the nights are so long and the silence goes on
And I'm feelin' so tired, I'm not all that strong
