A Song Composed about a Shipwreck

It was with a precious cargo from Bergenn we set sail.

It was with a precious cargo from Bergenn we set sail.
Kind fortune did favour us with a sweet and pleasant gale,
For nights and days we ploughed the seas

Our ship was heavily laden with tobacco and strong rum
And our captain prayed to God to steer our ship
Safe o'er the foam on to Inishowen Head.
