"Here's a Health" as written by and Cara/lakeman Dillon....
Kind friends and companions, together combine
And raise up your voices in chorus with mine
Let us drink and be merry, all grief to refrain
For we may and might never all meet here again

[Chorus]
Here's a health to the company and one to my lass
Let us drink and be merry all out of one glass
Let us drink and be merry, all grief to refrain
For we may and might never all meet here again

Here's a health to the wee lass that I love so well
Her style and her beauty, there's none can excel
There's a smile on her countenance as she sits on my knee
Sure there's no one in in this wide world as happy as me

[Chorus]

Our ship lies at harbor, she's ready to dock
I hope she's safe landed without shake or shock
And when we are sailing to the land of the free
I will always remember your kindness to me

I have read this old proverb, I've read it so true
My love is as fair as the bright morning dew
I have read this old proverb, I suppose you have too
So good friends and companions I bid you adieu

[Chorus]
