Can anyone provide the text to Row On ? written in the log book of 'The Three Brothers' and included in Songs the Whalermen Sang by Gale Huntington? Tim Laycock of the New Scorpion Band has written a fine tune and recorded the song,

A good place to start looking is in DigiTrad. Search for [Row On] ----the square brackets indicate that it's a phrase, and not two unconnected words.

It's on Ed Trickett's new CD Echo on the Evening Tide which is available through Folk-Legacy. Scroll down from the top of the opening page, then click on the image of Ed's CD. That'll show you the tray card. I'll try to find time to copy the words from Gale's book, but I can't do that tonight. Perhaps some kind soul will save me the trouble! Anyone else got the book?

ROW ON

Row on row on another day
May shine with brighter light
Ply ply the oars and pull away
Thou must not come tonight

Clouds are on the summer sky
There's thunder on the wind
Pull on pull on and homeward hie
Not give one look behind

Bear where thou goest the words of love
Say all that words can say
Changeless affections strength to prove
But speed upon the way

Oh like yon river would I glide
To where my heart would be
My bark should soon outsail the tide
That hurries to the sea

But yet a star shines constant still
Through yonder cloudy sky
And hope as bright my bosom stills
From faith that can not die

Row on row on God speed the way
Thou must not linger here
Storms hang about the closing day
Tomorrow may be clear.

Three Brothers 1846

[p. 290. No music]

Thank you, GUEST. I hate to type and can rarely do so without numerous typos that poor Joe Offer has to correct for me after the fact. You've provided a worthy service.

Sandy
