OLD SWANSEA TOWN ONCE MORE Traditional Folk Song Oh the Lord, made the bees, An' the bees did make the honey, But the Divil sent the woman foe to rob us of our money. An around Cape Horn we'll go! An when me money's all spent ol' gal, We'll round Cape Horn for more ol' gal ol'gal! You're the one I do adore. An all I'm living in hope to see, Is ol' Swansea Town once more! Now we're outward bound around Cape Horn to 'Frisco an' around I'll send you letters when we get there, An' you'll know I'm homeward bound ol' gal ol' gal! Now when we're homeward bound, my dear I'll bring you silks galore, I'll bring you jewels an' rings an' things, An ye won't wear the weeds no more, ol' gal ol' gal. Chorus: You're the one I do adore, An' all I've livin' in hopes to see, Is ol' Swansea Town once more, old gal, old gal! You're the one I do adore, So take me ropes an' make me fast, In ol' Swansea Town once more. Now when we're leaving 'Frisco Town, Outside of the Golden Gate, I'll write my last letter to you, me dear Then ye won't have so long to wait, old gal, old gal! Chorus: You're the one I do adore, An' all I've livin' in hopes to see, Is ol' Swansea Town once more, old gal, old gal! You're the one I do adore, So take me ropes an' make me fast, In ol' Swansea Town once more. An' when we're leavin' the old Fallerones, bound for my o' Swansea, I know ye'll pull gal, on the string, For to haul me in from sea, old gal, old gal! Chorus: You're the one I do adore, An' all I've livin' in hopes to see, Is ol' Swansea Town once more, old gal, old gal! You're the one I do adore, So take me ropes an' make me fast, In ol' Swansea Town once more. An then when we're rounded old Cape Horn, Climbin' the hill for home Passed teh Western Islands into the Bay We'll have no further for to roam, old gal, old gal! Chorus: You're the one I do adore, An' all I've livin' in hopes to see, Is ol' Swansea Town once more, old gal, old gal! You're the one I do adore, So take me ropes an' make me fast, In ol' Swansea Town once more. An' then when we up the Channel do sail, I'll pray that you'll be there, To wait, me dear, on Swansea pier My lovely presents for to share, old gal, old gal! Chorus: You're the one I do adore, An' all I've livin' in hopes to see, Is ol' Swansea Town once more, old gal, old gal! You're the one I do adore, So take me ropes an' make me fast, In ol' Swansea Town once more. When Swansea Town we're off once more, We'll see the lights so clear, I know that's Megan down on the pier In her dimity apron dear, old gal, old gal! Chorus: You're the one I do adore, An' all I've livin' in hopes to see, Is ol' Swansea Town once more, old gal, old gal! You're the one I do adore, So take me ropes an' make me fast, In ol' Swansea Town once more. (Contributed by Andy & Mogg - May 2004)
