Anyone know the rest of this ?

Last night as I lay sleeping fast Is the whale then no more I dreamed that this had come to pass Is the big feller gone

All the verses share the same second & fourth line

I've heard it only once, and I think its as good as the Andy Barnes 'Last Leviathan'

THE BIG FELLA'
(Rod Shearman)
(Recorded by Tom Lewis.)

Last night as I lay sleeping fast; IS THE WHALE THEN NO MORE?
I dreamed that this had come to pass: IS THE BIG FELLA GONE?

Sixty tons of streamlined grace; IS THE WHALE THEN NO MORE?
Has he disappeared from the earth's face? IS THE BIG FELLA' GONE?

In waters that he made a home; IS THE WHALE THEN NO MORE?
Is the Finback never more to roam? IS THE BIG FELLA' GONE?

Where the Sperm so deep did sound; IS THE WHALE THEN NO MORE?
Has he left the hunting ground? IS THE BIG FELLA' GONE?

Beneath the waves it echoed long; IS THE WHALE THEN NO MORE?
Shall we ne'er more hear the Humpback's song? IS THE BIG FELLA' GONE?

By Arctic shores so cold and still; IS THE WHALE THEN NO MORE?
The mighty Blue seeks the tiny krill. IS THE BIG FELLA' GONE?

Last night as I lay sleeping' fast; IS THE WHALE THEN NO MORE?
I dreamed that this had come to pass: IS THE BIG FELLA' GONE?
^^

I've had the privilege of hearing Rod Shearman do this with the best acapella choir in the world ( the barn at Towersey) and it's bloody awesome!

I'll be seeing Rod tonight (DV), and I'm tempted to ask him to do it again for old times' sake - it's a cracking song, and he does it beautifully.
Thanks for the reminder.
