Thread Name: Sea Ballads
Subject: RE: Sea Ballads
Check out Silly Wizard's Fisherman's Wife on You Tube. Written by the late great Andy M. Stewart.
On a storm torn headland a woman is standing
The spray hung like jewels in her hair.
And the sea tore the rocks near that desolate landing
As though it had known she stood there

But she had come down to condemn that wild ocean
For the murderous loss of her man.
His boat went out on Wednesday morning
And it's feared she's gone down with all hands....

The Bay of Biscay
