Dave Webber and Annie Fentiman have it on Bonnet and Shawl. If I have time, I'll transcribe it. I've wanted to learn it too, so, maybe. It IS two days before Christmas, tho, so don't hold your breath.
Blessings,
Barbara

Row On

Row on, row no another day
May shine with brighter light
Ply, ply the oars & pull away
Thou must not come tonight

Clouds are upon the summer sky
There's thunder on the wind
Pull on, pull on & homeward hie
Nor give one look behind

Bear where thou goest the word 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 younder 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

Thanks Shantyman, for some reason I had "Lights Along The Shore" & couldn't get past it. Barry

Many thanks Barbaara and Barry. I also found "Row On" with slightly different words on a tape called "Sailor": John Townley up. (Maritime Musice Int'l, White Stone VA
