CHORUS (CHORDS AS VERSE 1):
So bend your backs and row, me lads, and take me to me whale.

Di Di Di Di Da Di DE Di Di

The whale it came so close, it was bigger than the sky.
They lowered down the longboat and they heard the captain cry:
CHORUS

The whale it came so close, it almost tipped the boat.
The captain took his spear and he rammed it down its throat.
The whale it gave a mournful cry and tifted its great tail
And brought it down a-crushing their small boat like a gale.

(SPOKEN) Now 100 years have passed since the captain and his men
Went down to spend their days in Davy Jones's den.
The whale it goes on living but inside it bears a scar,
And if you're ever near that place a voice calls from afar:

CHORUS TWICE, LAST LINE:
We'll show them all we captured the monster from the sea.

I have only ever heard this sung by an Australian group from the 70's called The Ants (who wore brightly coloured boiler suits). I was always under the impression that they wrote it. A group that I was in played it a couple of times - I suspect our lyrics were learned from radio air play.

G'day Rapaire, Charley (... Ted ... John ... Uncle Tom Cobbley & all ...),

The song was written late '60s / early '70s by two blokes from down the Illawarra region, south of Sydney. I don't have the text and details handy, but it was recorded by a few Australian (and the odd American ... ?) groups in the '70s.

Rapaire is right about it being a straight lift of the story line of Moby Dick ... but those good old stories can make for good songs (Right, eh, Charley?).

I'll try to find more details of the authors (I heard one of them at the Australian Folk Festival at Kiama ... about 5 years back) so we can get it right - after I get home tonight.

Regards,

Bob

G'day again,

Here's full reply to a local query (about 1˝ years back) for words and background on The Whale:

The Whale
(Terry Fielding and Fred Dyer)

(Am) Di Di Di Di Da (G) Di DE Di (Am)Di

(Am) They sailed from port one morning; the (G) weather it was (Am) fair.
A gentle breeze it pushed them and (G) no one gave a (Am) care.

(Am) The Captain said "a piece of gold for (G) him who sees me (Am) whale.
So bend your backs and row me boys I (G) know that we won't (Am) fail".
Chorus (chords as Verse 1)
So bend your backs and row me lads and take me to me whale.

Di Di Di Di Di Da Di Di

They saw the whale one morning - the weather it was fair.

The whale it came so close it was bigger than the sky -
They lowered down the longboat and they heard the captain cry:
Chorus

Di Di Di Di Di Da Di Di

Chorus
The whale it came so close it almost tipped the boat -
The captain took his spear and he rammed it down its throat.
The whale it gave a mournful cry and lifted its great tail -
And brought it down a'crushing their small boat like a gale!

(spoken)
Now 100 years have passed since the Captain and his men
Went down to spend their days in Davy Jones's den.
The whale it goes on living - but inside it bears a scar
And if your ever near that place, a voice calls from afar ...

Chorus twice, last line:
We'll show them all we captured the monster from the sea.

I got the definitive reply on this song from Russ Hannah - universal organiser /stage manager /folk club doer from the Illawarra Region (south of Sydney):

"The Whale was written by Terry Fielding and Fred Dyer and produced as a single in 1972 when it reached the top five in the national charts (It could have been on top in some charts). It was followed by another single called The Ghost. Terry Fielding in fact did live in the Illawarra (I think at Corrimal).

... In 1992 EMI produced their first album (on Axis) called Fielding and Dyer #7243 8 14786 2 2. Terry appeared at Jamberoo [the Illawarra Folk Festival] a few years ago and I have not seen him since. Fred's whereabouts I do not know ... "

My other enquiries with friends in working folk groups indicates that the song remains a (local, at least) standard with groups ranging from Folk to Rock - almost as much of a hardy perennial as Running Bear!

I hope some of this is useful,

Bob

G'day David from Sydney,

I just had a music session at my place (inner Sydney Leichhardt) and one of my friends attending was in a group which recorded The Whale on an LP ... way back then ... I'll ring him and ask if he has the dots ... somewhere close enough to the surface to excavate!

If he has the music - or can write it out - I'll post it (as an ABC - since the MIDItext program is "no longer supported by Mudcat". (If you give me an email addres, I can send you a MIDI - or an image of a transcription of the dots.)

Hi all, here we go again! I just can't seem to get my post up,so If the other posts appear suddenly, I'm sorry for the repetition...I forgot to 'copy" them...ha ha...so here goes...
What a nice surprise to find this site...thank you for remembering our song The Whale....Info: Terry has been living in Geelong Vic for many years now and I have been at Lake Macquarie, NSW for over 20 years. We are both retired from our "day jobs". we still get together regularly ..have a bash, write some songs and down a few ales :-) We won the Bandstand Songwriters Awards (C&W section )with a song called Big White Horse back in 1971(!)It was Brian Henderson's last show as its compere..sent out live.. Yes, The Whale is based on Moby Dick ,one of our favourite yarns..We did the album in 1995, our first! We had fun...no pressure. If anyone is interest, i can supply a copy of the album, which contains the original versions of The Whale'72,the Ghost '73, Big White Horse '71..The A & B sides, remember when they used to be called that? ha ha...Plus a copy of the original sheet music ,complete with "typo " error.."A gentle breeze it RUSHED them."!

G'day Fred,

It looks like almost 24 hours since you posted ... I missed the posts initially because I was off to a 40th birthday party for a musician /singer friend ... and only got home a couple of hours back. Interestingly, I was playing along (on button accordion) with your song about 3 hours ago!

I turned out that my other friend (who had played fiddle and concertina in a Sydney Group Pinchgut that recorded The Wahale on their LP Dewy, dewy Grass in 1982 (check your royalties sheet ... but I'm pretty sure they paid up!) did not have the "dots" - however he gave me a CD-R copy of their LP, saving me frpm doing all the copy to computer / edit / trim / balance / &c work. I was going to get around to transcribing the tune for "David from Sydney - but the real sheet music would be more appropriate! I'll email you as soon as I get of the Mudcat.

"... P.S. Bob...the chords are a little out ..:-) " I wouldn't be surprised ... chords are very variable player to player / arranger to arranger - and I didn't annotate those posted above. I may not have made it clear enough, but the information and the lyrics / chords were all supplied to me by Russ Hannah, from the Illawarra Folk Club. Russ is not a singer / musician, so he probably had to take what he was given on trust ... and I had not yet transcribed the tune, so I hadn't checked the chords against my theoretical choices.

Thanks for your posting and your kind offer.

Regards,

Bob Bolton

G'day again Fred,

My email is probably being dealt with at your end as I write ... it was sent from home, so I'll look it up when I get back there (before ... or after ... tonight's Music Session, which I run at the Bush Music Club.

I'll appreciate whatever you can easily lay your hands on. I'm sure I can get the "dots" down - as I can play the tune and that just means telling my left-brain to pay attention to what the right-brain is happily doing! Your chords will help my mate Chris (the birthday boy) - he's a natural ear musician and picks up every nuance faster than anyone dependent on music - but he will have heard any number of secondhand versions of The Whale ... but probably not your original!

I have another get-together with his family at the Monday Night Bush Music Club session - his Dad (who was in a "bush Band" with me in the '70s) is a stalwart of the sessions (resonator mandolin! / guitar / fiddle) although he played button accordion and concertina back then. The kids who were always around when Rouseabouts pratciced over at John's place are all regulars at my session - Chris (guitar / banjo / vocals), his brother Mark (drums), sister Stephanie (piano / mouth organ / whistle / 'bluesy' vocals) ... and Chris's wife Margaret (vast range of rattly / shakey percussion / whistles / &c). We have anything up to 20 sessioners ... many of them 'beginners' (even if well into later years!) and the solid support of Chris and his tribe really ties it all together.

Regards,

Bob

G'day Sandra ...

I think "pointy things" (angle brackets...?) are signals for an html command on this type of site. If there is no intelligible command ... what's inside the angle brackets gets ignored (i.e. - omitted).

Regard(les)s,

Bob

I can't beleive I have finally found info on where I can purchase a cd containing the whale song. I remember in 1976 with a few mates in Glebe mucking around with our guitars drunk as skunks playing the whale song.(showing my age now)Good one Fred. Will be ordering right now!
