Tears For Beers

Tears For Beers - Home Boys Home

oh well there wouldn`t be a sailor lad a sailin`on the main

to gain the good will of his captain`good name

he came ashore on evening for to be

and that was the beginning of my own true love and me

well I asked her for a candle for tolight me up to bed

and likewise for a handkerchief to tie around me head

she tended to me needs like a young maid ought to be

so then I say to her, "now won`t you leap in with me too

well she jumped into bed, making no alarm

thinking a young sailor lad could to her no harm

well I hugged her and kissed her the whole night long

till she wished the short night had been nine years long

well early the next morning the sailor lad arose

and into Mary`s apron threw a handful of gold

saying, "take this to me daer for the mischief that I`ve done

for tonight I faer I`ve left you with a daughter or a son

well, if it be a girl child, send her out to nurse

with gold in her pocket and with silver in her purse

and if it be a boy child he`ll wear the jacket blue

and go climbing up the rigging like his daddy used to do
