ABIGAIL WASHBURN lyrics - Captain

ABIGAIL WASHBURN
"Captain"

Oh the water
Oh the water
Oh the water

So clear
And blue
And free

Thought I heard old
Big leg lula
Callin' me, boys
Singin' come on home

If I can just make it
Through January, February
I'll march on through, boys
I'll march on through

Oh the water
Oh the water
Oh the water

So clear
And blue
And free

I asked the foreman
What time of day was
He was so hard hearted
Just walked away

I asked the judge
What be my fine?
He said: if I don't hang you
I give you ninety-nine'
I give you ninety-nine, boys
I give you ninety-nine
If I don't hang you
Give you ninety-nine

If you wanna
Please your captain
Sink 'em low, boys
Raise 'em high

Sink 'em low, boys
Sink 'em low, boys
Sink 'em low, boys
Raise 'em high

Hail the captain!
Hail his gun!
Hail the chiefman!
And his prodigal son!

I seen him preachin'
And I seen him run
I read his Bible
I don't owe him none

I don't owe him none, boys
I don't owe him none
I'll be a witness
To the rising sun

If you wanna
Please your captain
Sink 'em low, boys
Raise 'em high

Sink 'em low, boys
Sink 'em low, boys
Sink 'em low, boys
Raise 'em high

Oh the water
Oh the water
Oh the water

So clear
And blue
And free
