cetmst Lyr Req: I Lost Her in Gloucester (R E Dameron) (21) Lyr Add: LOST HER IN GLOUCESTER (from Jones/Goslin 02 Mar 09


Transcribed from a tape by David Jones and Tom Goslin. Sorry, a couple of the fish got away.

I LOST HER IN GLOUCESTER

I lost her in Gloucester, in Gloucester by the sea.
I told her that I loved her and she said that she loved me.
The shad (?) was loaded and so was she.
Well I lost her in Gloucester, in Gloucester by the sea.

Down by the ocean was where I flounder.
Just for the halibut I threw my arms around her
But I could not get to first bass with her
(She was a mussel) and she had a lovely kisser.
She was hard of herring and she smelt like turpentine.
I fell for her with a hook, line and sinker,
But how was I to know she was a whale of a drinker.

I lost her in Gloucester, in Gloucester by the sea
She never said goodbye or I'll see you .....
Sh here I'll perch on this rock by the sea,
And sing you this tuna of the girl that once loved me.

Hope salmon can add the missing words.
