Great Big Sea lyrics : "Yarmouth Town"

In Yarmouth town there lived a man
He had a little tavern by the strand
And the landlord had a daughter fair

Pretty little thing with golden hair

[Chorus:]

Won't you come down
Won't you come down
Won't you come down to Yarmouth town


One night there came a sailor man
He asked the daughter for her hand

Well I won't marry you she said
I have all I want without being wed


But if with me you'd like to linger
I'll tie some string all around my finger
As you walk by, pull on my string

I'll come down and let you right in

[Chorus 2x]


Well the very next day at closing time
The sailor man goes off to the strand

And as he walks by pulls on that string
And she came down and let him right in


Well he's never such a sight before
A string on her finger was all she wore


[Chorus 2x]

So all you men who to Yarmouth go

If ya see those girls with their hair hung low
All ya gotta do is pull their strings
And they'll come down and let you right in


[Chorus 4x]
