GUEST,Shanty Kees Lyr Req: Coming Around the Horn (12) RE: Lyr Req: Coming Around the Horn 06 Nov 04


Anne,

Maybe this will help. I do have the CD "San Francisco Shanties and Sea Songs of Califonia's Gold Rush" by Holdstock & Murphey.

The song you want is on it but as English is not my native tongue I'm not sure about some of the words. Maybe someone else can help this. The song wanted has the following chorus:

Oh I remember well, the lies they used to tell,
Of gold so bright, it hurt the sight and made the miners ill(or yell).

Kees
