Keep your voice low Let soft shadows play On their sleeping faces We've come far, my wife, since that long ago night I know we'll be alright We'll be alright Our ship left at the first hour of the new year After midnight We set our sails by the full moon light And turned our backs on the old land On decks below by lamplit glow our hope to grow A new family Distant shore and rough seas between us and freedom On the third day a black flag made unease among the lads Astern she came on an ill wind, bearing down dark and grim The helmsman said avast, there be a battle on our hands Blood was spilled and still we fought Cannon fire held them off Board they did at our side Rapier fight, many died Seadog devils, nasty tricks Pegleg bludgeon finished it Cut them loose, threw them off Victory! And so we left with heads held high, battered, bruised, Still alive We returned sails to clear blue sky And set off again in ocean wide On decks below by lamplit glow our hope arose Our new child Distant shore and rough seas lead us to freedom Days passed and we journeyed on, stars to guide our way Morning came with a golden dawn, travel's end that day Land was seen and we all cheered Watch the coastline drawing near Shout we did, at the sight Of our new life! We arrived at high tide of morning ide Into port It's the last time our crew climbed the mastline And lowered sails On decks below by lamplit glow my story told To our child A distant shore and rough sea lead us to freedom
