Greetings Cats, it's been a long time!

I'm looking for the lyrics (and chords if possible) to a few songs. The first a sea shanties.... "Down Red Rosie's" & "Blue Bell Line (?)". Not sure of the correct name of the later, it was a shanty of the late 1800s, about a ocean liner company.

Also looking a song called "War Like Lads of Russia". Sometime also called "Bonaparte's Retreat" but I think it a different song. The chorus is somewhat like....

War Like Lads of Russia, they follow him blind. Bonaparte to run and leave his troops behind.

That's it! Thanks JenEllen!

And I also just found the lyrics to "War Like Lads of Russia"... where? On my own website!! I feel like such a tool on that one.

Warlike Lads of Russia recorded by Nic Jones and is on Unearthed. I believe he put it together himself, from a broadsheet.
