    "Home Boys Home" Lyrics

    Tears For Beers

    oh well there wouldn't be a sailor lad a sailin'on the main
    to gain the good will of his captain'good name
    he came ashore on evening for to be
    and that was the beginning of my own true love and me

    well I asked her for a candle for tolight me up to bed
    and likewise for a handkerchief to tie around me head
    she tended to me needs like a young maid ought to be
    so then I say to her, "now won't you leap in with me too

    well she jumped into bed, making no alarm
    thinking a young sailor lad could to her no harm

    well I hugged her and kissed her the whole night long
    till she wished the short night had been nine years long

    well early the next morning the sailor lad arose
    and into Mary's apron threw a handful of gold
    saying, "take this to me daer for the mischief that I've done
    for tonight I faer I've left you with a daughter or a son

    well, if it be a girl child, send her out to nurse
    with gold in her pocket and with silver in her purse
    and if it be a boy child he'll wear the jacket blue
    and go climbing up the rigging like his daddy used to do
