about

GREENLAND'S ICE: A Pogues-esque sea-shanty reel about a stubborn sea captain and his crew. Tin whistle and a lengthy Irish-folk instrumental drive the song.

lyrics

In the month of June on the eighteenth day
We braced our sheets and we sailed away
And our colours flew up against the sky
But all of Greenland’s ice was in the captain’s eye

It was eighteen months without a sight of land
No mountains green not a stretch of sand
The belly timber gone and the rum run dry
And all of Greenland’s ice was in the captain’s eye

We suffered keen and bitter blasts
Our dearest hopes they were slipping fast
And to a man we thought that we would die
’Cause all of Greenland’s ice was in the captain’s eye

There came a sail out on the main
But this brave sight vexed our captain’s brain
We cried out loud as the ship came by
’Cause all of Greenland’s ice was in the captain’s eye

For our despair he would make us pay
And the captain steered our ship away
And I asked him straight the reason why
’Cause all of Greenland’s ice is in my eye

That night I saw him against the rail
And the waves did crash and the winds did wail
And his tears would freeze if he could but cry
’Cause all of Greenland’s ice was in his eye
