Go To Sea No More
Sung by: The Irish Descendants

Its another day we
go, sailin' over the blue
I looked to the horizon, my thoughts drift home to
you
A young man only 17, adventure couldn't wait
Set sail from home on a
fishin' ship, bound for the Boston states

I shipped out on a Gloucester's
mack, and fished the George's Bank
The work was hard and the wage was fair,
to the good Lord I gave thanks
Although I've had a good life, as good as any
other man
If I could change the course of time, I live in my home
land

My thoughts are always with you, have you change since I've
gone
Oh how I long to see you, the time as been so long
If I could get
just one more chance, to walk your rugged shore
I trade the life I choose to
make, and Go To Sea No More....

Last night as I laid dreamin', I sailed
the ragin' foam
My ship she took me far away, to the rocky shores of
home
And I can write a thousands lines to say just how I feel
I hope and
pray that some fine day my dreams can be real

My thoughts are always with
you, have you change since I've gone
Oh how I long to see you, the time as
been so long
If I could get just one more chance, to walk your rugged
shore
I traded the life I choose to make, and Go To Sea No More....

My
thoughts are always with you, have you change since I've gone
Oh how I long
to see you, the time as been so long
If I could get just one more chance, to
walk your rugged shore
I traded the life I choose to make, and Go To Sea No
More
I traded the life I choose to make, and Go...... To Sea No More

CATCH THE WIND
Irish Descendants


In the chilly hours and minutes .. of un-cer-tain-ty, I want to be
In the
warm hold of your loving mind
To feel you all a-round me .. and to take your
hand a-long the sand
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind


When sundown pales the sky, I want to hide a-while be-hind your smile
and
every-where I'd look, your eyes I'd find
For me to love you now, .. would be
the sweetest thing, t'would make me sing
Ah, but I may as well try and catch
the wind


Diddy di dee dee diddy diddy, diddy diddy, diddy diddy, .. dee dee dee


When rain has hung the leaves with tears, I want you near to kill my
fear
To help me to leave all my blues be-hind
Standin' in your heart is
where I want to be and long to be
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the
wind

Rattlin' Bog
The Irish Descendants


Chorus
Oh, Oh, The rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-O
Oh, Oh,
The rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-O


And in that bog there was a tree,
A rare tree, a rattlin' tree:
With
the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-O


Chorus


And on that tree there was a limb,
A rare limb, a rattlin' limb:
With
the limb on the tree
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the
valley-O


Chorus


And on that limb there was a branch,
A rare branch, a rattlin' branch:

With the branch on the limb
And the limb on the tree
And the tree in
the bog
And the bog down in the valley-O


Chorus


The song continues following the pattern, until the last verse,
sung at
top speed:


And on that feather there was a flea,
A rare flea, a rattlin' flea:

With the flea on the feather
And the feather on the bird
And the
bird on the egg
And the egg in the nest
And the nest on the twig
And
the twig on the branch
And the branch on the limb
And the limb on the
tree
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-O

Raggle Taggle Gypsy


There were three bould gypsies, came to our hall door,
Down the stairs
came the lady-o,
One sang high and another sang low,
The other sang the
bonny bony biscay-o.


They sang so fast and they sang so shrill,
That fast her tears began to
flow,
She laid down her silken gown,
Her golden rings and all her show.


Then she pulled off her silk finished gown,
And she pulled off her satin
bow,
She left them all at our door,
She is gone with the raggle taggle
gypsy-o.


it was late at night, when my lord came home,
Enquiring for his
lady-o,
The servants said on every hand,
She is gone with the raggle
taggle gypsy-o.


O he rode high and he rode low,
He rode through wood and
corpses-o,
Until he came to a wide open field,
And there he spied his
lady-o.


O what made you leave your house and land,
What made you leave your
money-o,
And what made you leave your new-wedded lord,
To be off with the
raggle-taggle gypsy-o.


O what care I for my house and land,
What care I for money-o,
And what
care I for my new-wedded lord,
I'm off with the raggle-taggle gypsy-o.


O what care I for my goose feathered bed,
With the sheet turned down so
bravely-o,
Tonight I will sleep in a wide open field,
In the arms of the
raggle-taggle-gypsy-o.
