牋牋牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋?The Candlelight Fisherman

牋牋牋牋牋牋牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?Traditional English

牋牋牋牋牋?

牋牋牋牋牋?I learned this from old Eric Ilot, "The Bristol Chanteyman" who graced our town for a few weeks some winters ago.?It was also collected by Bob Roberts.

牋牋牋牋牋?This old codger had a good dodge when he didn't want to go fishing; he's talking about a candle-lantern, a four-sided glass box with a candle in it, one side of which opens like a door.?If you want the candle to keep burning, you keep the door (pane) closed.

牋牋牋牋牋?Now me Dad was a fisherman bold

牋牋牋牋?And he lived till he grew old

牋牋牋牋?'Cause he'd open the pane and pop out the flame

牋牋牋牋?Just to see how the winds do blow.

 

牋牋牋牋?Now me Dad he says to me

牋牋牋牋?If you're ever going to go to sea

牋牋牋牋?Do you open the pane and pop out the flame

牋牋牋牋?Just to see how the winds do blow.

 

牋牋牋牋?Now when the cold North wind do blow

牋牋牋牋?Then it's we lie snug below

牋牋牋牋?'Cause we open the pane?o:p>

 

牋牋牋牋?When the wind comes up from the East

牋牋牋牋?It isn't fit for man nor beast

牋牋牋牋?Still I open the pane?o:p>

 

牋牋牋牋?When the wind comes up from the West

牋牋牋牋?She's going to blowup rough at best

牋牋牋牋?So I open the pane?o:p>

 

牋牋牋牋?But when the South wind soft do blow

牋牋牋牋?Well there ain't enough wind to go

牋牋牋牋?Still, I open the pane?o:p>

 

牋牋牋牋?When me wife she says to me

牋牋牋牋?We'll starve if you don't go

牋牋牋牋?Well, I open the pane?o:p>

牋牋牋牋?So if you'd be a fisherman bold

牋牋牋牋?And you'd live till you grow old

牋牋牋牋?Do you open the pane?o:p>
