Native North American Ballad and Broadside Ballad lyrics:  Native North American Ballad and Broadside Ballad lyrics Aunt Martha’s Sheep:  Aunt Martha’s Sheep Come gather all around me and I’ll sing to you a tale About the boys in Carmenville who almost went to jail It happened on a November’s night when all hands was asleep We crept up over Joe Tulk’s Hill and stole Aunt Martha’s sheep Aunt Martha’s Sheep:  Aunt Martha’s Sheep Now if you’ll pay attention, I know I’ll make you laugh We never meant to steal the sheep, we meant to steal the calf The old cow she got angry ‘cause we woke her from her sleep We couldn’t take any chances so we had to steal the sheep Aunt Martha’s Sheep:  Aunt Martha’s Sheep We caught the woolly animal and dragged her from her pen She said good-bye to the little lambs she’d never see again She knew that those dark strangers soon would take her life In less than half an hour she felt the dreadful knife Aunt Martha’s Sheep:  Aunt Martha’s Sheep Aunt Martha she got angry when she heard about the loss She said she’d catch the robbers, no matter what the cost Next morning just at sunrise, she to the office went And to the RCMP a telegram she sent Aunt Martha’s Sheep:  Aunt Martha’s Sheep The Mountie got the message and started in to read This is from Aunt Martha, telling an awful deed Last night my sheep was stolen, by whom I cannot tell I’d like for you to catch them and to drag them back to jail Aunt Martha’s Sheep:  Aunt Martha’s Sheep Just a short time later, about twelve o’clock that night We had the sheep a-cooking, and everyone feeling tight The smell of mutton and onions, no man could ask for more We were chug-a-lugging Dominion when a Mountie walked in the door Aunt Martha’s Sheep:  Aunt Martha’s Sheep Said sorry boys, your party I really don’t want to wreck I smelled the meat a-cooking, and I had to come in and check You see the sheep was stolen and the theif is on the loose I said come right in and join us sir, we’re having a piece of moose Aunt Martha’s Sheep:  Aunt Martha’s Sheep He said thanks a lot and he sat right down and I gave him a piece of the sheep This is the finest piece of moose I know I’ve ever eat About two o’clock in the morning he bid us all good day If we get any clues on the sheep, sir, we’ll phone you right away Aunt Martha’s Sheep:  Aunt Martha’s Sheep He said thanks a lot, you’re a darn fine bunch and I know your promise you’ll keep If everyone was as good as you, she wouldn’t have lost her sheep After he left we had the piece we had in the oven to roast We might have stole the sheep, boys, but the Mountie ate the most The Moose Song:  The Moose Song Come all you Newfoundlanders and listen to my song I’ll tell you about the moose we killed and the man that did us wrong On a sunny morn, October 3rd, I’m telling you no lies When Lizzie Walker hollered out, saying, “get your guns, me boys” The Moose Song:  The Moose Song “There is a moose down in the Reaches, coming up the lane Jim Keeping’s got him rounded up, I think he must be lame” Our guns and ammunition, we got without delay Lou Lemmen had the first shot, I’m very sure to say The Moose Song:  The Moose Song George Croucher had the second shot, if you want to know his name Bill Mondin had the third shot, which brought him to his end There were men, women and children all gathered ‘round the hill All looking for a piece of meat, their appetite to fill The Moose Song:  The Moose Song But just before we got him clean, the boys from the crowd did say “I guess we’re going to be hung, the squealer’s on his way” He came up alongside of us, unto us he did say “I’m sorry, boys, to inform on you,” and turned and walked away The Moose Song:  The Moose Song We took the moose and chopped him up and gave it all around It looked just like a meat market that day on Dewey’s ground The men that killed the moose, me boys, they would not hurt a chick To let that squealer inform on us, we should have broke his neck The Moose Song:  The Moose Song But let’s think of the Bible, boys, and with it we’ll advise When they slap you on the left cheek, hold up the other side The magistrate he came around, unto the laws he went To try to soak us poor boys who never had a cent The Moose Song:  The Moose Song He said, “You broke the law, me boys, indeed you understand” Two hundred dollars is a fine, but I’ll do the best I can” If he had all to do within, he would not soak us men To see the grief lie on these faces, his heart was touched within The Moose Song:  The Moose Song Our statement was all given in, everything went very well He said, “five dollars is a fine, or fourteen days in jail” And now my song is ending, I’m going to propose It’s going to pay the squealer to keep his big mouth closed Aunt Lucy’s Sheep:  Aunt Lucy’s Sheep It was eight o’clock in the evening and Lucy was going to bed Her dad was just ahead of her, he was up on the stair head He looked through the window and a car he saw the white He said, “I believe Lucy, they’re stealing our sheep tonight” Aunt Lucy’s Sheep:  Aunt Lucy’s Sheep They lived out on the point where there wasn’t a street light Strangers seldom drive out there, especially late at night Her daddy was ninety years and in no shape for a fight They had to stay and watch them load the sheep and drive out of sight Aunt Lucy’s Sheep:  Aunt Lucy’s Sheep They always kept a flock of sheep and they called each one by name Lucy loved the poor things because they were so tame Her daddy said wait ‘til morn, there’s not much more we can do But call down the Mounties, and get them all the clues Aunt Lucy’s Sheep:  Aunt Lucy’s Sheep Next morning the Mounties got the call and they rushed down to the scene The white car they were looking for turned out to be light green They closed in on the suspects, freezers filled to the top “This time,” the Mounties said to them, “these pranks have got to be stopped” Aunt Lucy’s Sheep:  Aunt Lucy’s Sheep A few days later the Mounties brought in the four guys “This time,” the judge said, “you didn’t pull the wool over their eyes” He passed out stiff sentences, a fine for them to pay The four guys looked at each other, and someone in court said “Baaah” Aunt Lucy’s Sheep:  Aunt Lucy’s Sheep So if you’re driving late at night and seeking a little fun Just remember you hurt yourself if you try to hurt someone And if you’re feeling hungry and want to become a glutton Stay away from sheep, boys, ‘cause you can’t get your mutton for nuttin’ Loss of the Danny Goodwin:  Loss of the Danny Goodwin The Danny being a noble boat, all [dollied] over new She carried a crew of six fishermen and dories she carried two She carried her crew of six fishermen as you may understand And the schooner named the Danny from New Harbour, Newfoundland Loss of the Danny Goodwin:  Loss of the Danny Goodwin The Danny left New Harbour on the western shore to go To risk their lives in dories through the bitter frost and snow To risk their lives in dories, I cannot understand But the schooner named the Danny from New Harbour, Newfoundland Loss of the Danny Goodwin:  Loss of the Danny Goodwin ‘Twas on Rose Blanche bank that morning that’s where we hove her to Our dories they got lowered away like they oftimes used to do Our dories they got lowered away, I cannot understand And perhaps he got them saved on board and saved her for the land Loss of the Danny Goodwin:  Loss of the Danny Goodwin A skipper from another boat, those words I heard him say He did not have his dories in when we got underway He did not have his dories in, I cannot understand And perhaps he got them saved on board and saved her for the land Loss of the Danny Goodwin:  Loss of the Danny Goodwin Going to land that evening through the bitter frost and snow Our skipper was a stranger, those harbours did not know Although he might have come to land, or perhaps he run’d ashore And perhaps he might have got drifted off and never return no more Loss of the Danny Goodwin:  Loss of the Danny Goodwin It blowed so hard for friends at home and the ones they loved so dear To have lost a son and a brother the one they loved so dear Leaving homes and little children they’ll never see no more And sure I’ll give up all hope to live upon the western shore.
