Jess A Lyr Req: Death of Nelson (43) Lyr Req: Death of Nelson 18 Oct 04

Since the 200th anniversary of Nelson's demise is nearly upon us, Rich & I were wanting to sing some Trafalgar & Nelson related songs... and in particular the one which I think Abby is referring to in this (old) thread although nobody actually posted the words to the version I'm after there. The version starts 'On the twenty-first of October at the rising of the sun' and has a chorus which goes something like

'Let him lie in peace,
God bless you all,
on board a man of war' (x2)

I've heard it sung by the Wilsons and I suspect it is a Bellamy tune. I am (fingers crossed) hoping that somebody out there might have the words to hand?
