The Coasts Of High Barbaree - lyrics

playlist Playlist
Look ahead, look a stern
Look the weather in the lee
Blow high! Blow low! And so sailed we
I see a wreck to the windward
And a lofty ship to lee
A sailling down along
The coasts of High Barbaree
Oh, are you a pirate
Or a man-o-war? cried we
Blow high! Blow low! And so sailed we
Oh no! I'm not a pirate
But a man-o-war, cried he
A sailing down along
The coasts of High Barbaree
So back up your topsails
And heave your vessel to
For we have got some letters
To be carried home by you
We'll back up your topsails
And heave your vessel to
But only in some harbor
And along the side of you
For broadside, for broadside
They fought all on the main
Blow high! Blow low! And so sailed we
Until at last the frigate
Shot the pirate's mast away
A sailling down along
the coasts of High Barbaree
For quarters! For quarters!
The saucy pirates cried
Blow high! Blow low! And so sailed we
The quarters that we showed them
Was to sink them in the tide
Oh, it was a cruel sight
And it grieved us full sore
To see them all drownin'
As they tried to swim to shore
With cutlass and gun
Oh we fought for hours three
Blow high! Blow low! And so sailed we
The ship it was their coffin
And their grave it was the sea
Blow high! Blow low! And so sailed we!
