There is a young maiden, She lives all alone
She lives all alone on the shore-o
There's nothing she can find to comfort her mind
But to roam all alone on the shore, shore shore
But to roam all alone on the shore

Twas of the young captain who sailed salt sea
Let the wind blow high blow low
I will die, I will die, The young captain did cry
If I don't have that maid on the shore, shore shore
If I don't have that maid on the shore.

Well I have lots of silver, I have lots of gold
I have lots of costly ware-o
I'll divide, I'll divide with my jolly ship's crew
If they row me that maid on the shore, shore shore
If they row me that maid on the shore

After much persuasion they got her aboard
Let the wind blow high blow low
They replaced her away in his cabin below
Here's a do to all sorrow and care, care care
Here's a do to all sorrow and care

They replaced her away in his cabin below
Let the wind blow high blow low
She's so pretty and neat, She's so sweet and complete
She sung captain and sailors to sleep, sleep sleep
She sung captain and sailors to sleep.

Then she robbed him of silver, She robbed him of gold
She robbed him a costly ware-o
Then took his broadsword instead of an oar
And paddled here way to the shore, shore shore
And paddled her way to the shore

Well me men must be crazy, Me men must be mad
Me men must be deep in dispair-o
For to let you away from my cabin so gay
And to paddle your way to the shore, shore shore
And to paddle your way to the shore

Well your men was not crazy, your men was not mad
Your men was not deep in dispair-o
I did looted your sailors as is what as yourself (?)
I'm a maiden again on the shore, shore shore
I'm a maiden again on the shore

Well there is a young maiden, she lives alone
She lives all alone on the shore-o
There's nothing she can find to comfort her mind
But to roam all alone on the shore, shore shore
But to roam all alone on the shore
