Davy Lowston (gezongen door/sung by Martin Carthy)

Het lied is uit Nieuw-Zeeland. Vissers zijn op zeehondenjacht in 1810. Hun schip liep vast. Het duurde 3 jaar voor de bemanning gered kon worden.

De zanger is Martin Carthy. Het lied staat op zijn LP Byker Hill.

Oh, me name was Davy Lowston, I did seal, I did seal
Oh, me name was Davy Lowston, I did seal
Oh, me men and I were lost
though our very lives it cost,
We did seal, we did seal, we did seal

We were set down in open bay, were set down, were set down
We were set down in open bay, oh, were set down
Were left, we gallant men, nevermore to sail again
Nevermore, nevermore, nevermore

Our captain John McGraw, he set sail, he set sail
Oh, yes, for old Port Stanley, he set sail
"I'll return, men, without fail", but he foundered in the gale
And went down and went down and went down

So come all you lads who venture far from home, far from home
So come all you lads who venture far from home
Where the icebergs tower high
That's a pitiful place to die
Never seal, never seal, never seal
