A simple New England whaler's tale


On the North Shore of Boston my ship is sailing
It’s a leaving from the port town just south of Salem
Gonna catch me a fish with a belly full of gold
I’m looking for one that is old on this trip of whaling

When I blow into a town they likely will recognize
They say “there goes tom Moore, a master of setting ties
A rogue & a rambler, saved from death nine times
He got a hook for his right hand & his face is like gnarly vines.”

Well I’m waging on a fortune, heavy to be exact
I’m boxing up his treasure, eaten up by his tax
Oh I used to own my own rig outfitted to the teeth
Some devilish squall came & took it a way from me
