about

We mix the fiddle tune 'Tam Linn' into our reworking of Lowlands, another traditional sea chanty. The Lowlands mentioned are, of course, the Netherlands which turn up in many a traditional song dating back to England's wars of the 17th and 18th centuries.

lyrics

Our packet is the Island Lass
Lowlands, lowlands, lowlands, low
There’s a laddie howlin’ at the main topmast Lowlands…
It’s a bully ship and a bully crew Lowlands…
And we’re the gang for to kick ‘er through

Our skipper hails from Barbados
Lowlands, lowlands, lowlands, low
He’s got the name Old Hammertoes Lowlands…
He feeds us bread as hard as brass Lowlands…
Our meat’s as salt as Lot’s wife’s ass
Lowlands, lowlands, lowlands, low

There’s a monkey rigged in sailor’s clothes
Lowlands, lowlands, lowlands, low
Where he got them from God only knows Lowlands…
Round Cape Stiff we’re bound to go Lowlands…
Round Cape Horn through the ice and snow
Lowlands, lowlands, lowlands, low

We’ll haul her high and let her dry
Lowlands, lowlands, lowlands, low
We’ll trice her up into the sky Lowlands…
It’s up aloft this yard must go Lowlands…
Up aloft from down below Lowlands…

Thought I heard the old man say…
Another pull and then belay…
Lowlands me boys and up she goes…
Get changed, m boys,to your shore goin’ clothes Lowlands…
