Sea Shanty: “Old Blood Roses”

My clothes are all in pawn
Go down you blood red roses, go down
And it’s mighty draughty around Cape Horn
Go down you blood red roses, go down
Oh, you pinks and posies
Go down you blood red roses, go down

It’s round Cape Horn we’ve got to go
Chasing whales through ice and snow

Oh my old mother she wrote to me
My darling son come home from sea

Oh it’s one more pull and that will do
For we’re the bullies to kick her through
