"General Taylor" as written by David Eric Swarbrick, Simon Nicol, David Pegg and Dp,....
General Taylor gained the day
Walk him along, John, carry him along
Oh, General Taylor gained the day
Carry him to his burying ground

To me way hey, you Stormy
Walk him along, John, carry him along
To me way hey, you Stormy
Carry him to his burying ground

Oh I wish I was old Stormy's son
Walk him along, John, carry him along
I'd build a ship ten thousand tons
Carry him to his burying ground

To me way hey, you Stormy
Walk him along, John, carry him along
To me way hey, you Stormy
Carry him to his burying ground

I'd load her down with ale and rum
Walk him along, John, carry him along
And every shellback should have some
Carry him to his burying ground

To me way hey, you Stormy
Walk him along, John, carry him along
To me way hey, you Stormy
Carry him to his burying ground

Oh we dig his grave with a silver spade
Walk him along, John, carry him along
And his shroud of the softest silk is made
Carry him to his burying ground

To me way hey, you Stormy
Walk him along, John, carry him along
To me way hey, you Stormy
Carry him to his burying ground

And we lower him down on a golden chain
Walk him along, John, carry him along
On every link we'll carve his name
Carry him to his burying ground

To me way hey, you Stormy
Walk him along, John, carry him along
To me way hey, you Stormy
Carry him to his burying ground

General Taylor's dead and gone
Walk him along, John, carry him along
General Taylor's dead and gone
Carry him to his burying ground

To me way hey, you Stormy
Walk him along, John, carry him along
To me way hey, you Stormy
Carry him to his burying ground
