Song: Blow ye winds in the Morning
Blow, ye winds, in the morning,
blow, ye winds, high-o !
Clear away your running gear
und blow, ye winds, high-o !

It's advertised in Boston, New York and Buffalo,
five hundred brave Americans a-whaling for to go !

Sing: Blow, ye winds, in the morning...

They send you to New Bedfort, that famous whaling port,
and give you to some land-sharks for to board and fit you out !

Sing: Blow, ye winds, in the morning...

They tell you of the clipper ships a-going in and out,
and say you'll take five hundred sperm, before you're six months out !

Sing: Blow, ye winds, in the morning...
