Traditional Songs of Newfoundland
Feller From Fortune
Oh, there's lots of fish in Bonavista Harbour
Lots of fish right in around here
Boys and girls are fishin' together
Forty-five from Carbonear.
Oh - Catch-a-hold this one,
Catch-a-hold that one,
Swing around this one, swing around she;
Dance around this one, dance around that one,
Diddle dum this one, diddle dum dee.
Where the hag-downs sail and the foghorns wail
With my friends the Browns and the Clearys.
Let me fish off Cape St. Mary's.
Let me feel my dory lift
To the broad Atlantic Combers
Where the rip tides swirl and the wild ducks swirl
Where Old Neptune calls the numbers
'Neath the broad Atlantic Combers.
