Roll and Go

There was a ship - she sailed to Spain
Ch: O. Roll and go;
There was a ship - she sailed to Spain
Ch: O Tommy's on the topsail yard!

There was a ship came home again,
There was a ship came home again.

What d'ye think was in her hold?
What d'ye think was in her hold?

There was diamonds, there was gold,
There was diamonds, there was gold.

What was in her lazareet?
What was in her lazareet?

Good split peas and bad bull meat,
Good split peas and bad bull meat.

Many sailormen gets drowned,
Many sailormen gets drowned.

From A Sailor's Garland by John Masefield (1906)
