THE BERGEN – J.Lowe / Lowe Life Music
Sleep why do you wake with this dreams you bring?
Dreams came to me where I lay,
And deep the melody the wild waves sing,
And my love is far, far away.
Pity the hearts the wild waves part,
My love sails the bonny barque The Bergen.
They heap their nets upon their decks by light,
Then creep out gentle at the dead of night.
The reap a harvest from a cold night’s sea,
It leaps with herring ‘neath his decks for me.
Steep waves rise above his cold bare head,
Keep him safe to lie here in my bed.
It weeps with rain tonight where my love lies,
Sweep that foreign sand from out his eyes.
