GREAT BIG SEA


Harbour LeCou Lyrics

As I rode ashore from my schooner close by.
A girl on the beach sir I chanced to espy,.
Her hair it was red and her bonnet was blue.
Her place of abode was in Harbour Lecou..
Oh boldly I asked her to walk on the sand.
She smiled like an angel and held out her hand.
So I buttoned me guernsey and hoved way me chew.
In the dark rolling waters of Harbour Lecou.
.
My ship she lay anchored far out on the tide.
As I stroll along with that maid at my side.
I told her I loved her, I said I'll be true,.
And I winked at the moon over Harbour Lecou.
As we walked on the sands at the close of the day.
I thought of my wife who was home in Torbay.
I knew that she'd kill me if she only knew.
I was courting this lassie in Harbour Lecou..
.
As we passed a log cabin that stood on the shore.
I met an old comrade I'd sailed with before,.
He treated me kindly saying "Jack, how are you?.
Its seldom I see you in Harbour Lecou"..
And as I was parting, this maiden in tow,.
He broke up my party with one single blow.
He said "Regards to your missus, and your wee kiddies too,.
I remember her well, she's from Harbour Lecou"..
.
I looked at this damsel a standing 'long side.
Her jaw it just dropped and her mouth opened wide.
And then like a she-cat upon me she flew.
And I fled from the furys of Harbour Lecou..
.
So come all you young sailors who walk on the shore.
Beware of old comrades you sailed with before.
Beware of the maidens with the bonnets of blue.
And the pretty young damsels of Harbour Lecou,.
And the pretty young damsels of Harbour Lecou..
