The Maid On The Shore (Solas)

There was a fair maid and she lived all alone She lived all alone on the shore No one could she find for to calm her sweet mind But to wander alone on the shore, shore, shore To wander alone on the shore There was a brave captain who sailed a fine ship And the weather being steady and fair I shall die, I shall die,this dear captain did cry If I can't have that maid on the shore, shore, shore If I can't have that maid on the shore After many persuasions they brought her on board He seated her down on his chair He invited her down to his cabin below Farewell to all sorrow and care Farewell to all sorrow and care I'll sing you a song,this fair maid did cry This captain was weeping for joy She sang it so sweetly, so soft and completely She sang the captain and sailors to sleep Captain and sailors to sleep She robbed them of jewels, she robbed them of wealth She robbed them of costly fine fare The captain's broadsword she used as an oar She rowed her way back to the shore, shore, shore She rowed her way back to the shore Oh the men, they were mad and the men, they were sad They were deeply sunk down in despair To see her go away with her booty so gay The rings and her things and her fine fare The rings and her things and her fine fare Well, don't be so sad and sunk down in despair And you should have known me before I sang you to sleep and I robbed you of wealth Well, again I'm a maid on the shore, shore, shore Again I'm a maid on the shore
