Go To Sea Once More

When first I came to Liverpool
I went upon a spree
Me money alas I spent too fast
Got drunk as drunk could be
And when my money was all gone
‘Twas then I wanted more
But a man must be blind to make up his mind
To go to sea once more

I spent the night with Angeline
Too drunk to roll in bed
My watch was new and my money too
In the mornin’ with ’em she fled
And as I roamed the streets about
The whores they all would roar
Here comes Jack Rack, the young sailin’ lad
He must go to sea once more

As I was walkin’ down the street
I met with Rapper Brown
I asked for him to take me in
And he looked at me with a frown
He said “Last time you was paid off
With me you jobbed no score
But I’ll take your advance and I’ll give ya’s a chance
And I’ll send you to sea once more

I hired me aboard of a whaling ship (note 1)
Bound for the Artic seas
Where the cold winds blow through the frost and the snow
And Jamaican rum would freeze
And worst and bear I’d no hard weather gear
For I’d lost all my money ashore
‘Twas then that I wished that I was dead
So I’d gone to sea no more

Some days we’re catching whales me lads
And some days we’re catching none
With a twenty foot oar cocked in our hands
From four o’clock in the morn
And when the shades of night come in
We rest on our weary oar
‘Twas then I wished that I was dead
Or safe with the girls ashore

Come all you bold seafarin’ men
And listen to my song
If you come off of them long trips
I’d have ya’s not go wrong
Take my advice, drink no strong drink
Don’t go sleeping with no whores
Get married lads and have all night in
So you’ll go to sea no more

Detroit:

Firstly – in the state of Michigan, it is legal to carry an exposed weapon making Detroit one of this country’s heavily armed cities in the country. It follows Chicago in murders. Also, over the last 20 years Detroit has seen a mass exodus, losing 2/3 of its population due to urbanization, corruption, industrial restructuring and the decline of it’s auto and related industry – those who stayed loves the city too much to leave or those who would leave if they could, but cannot. After 20 years of declining economic and steadily worsening urban decay, the city is now on the rise again, but gentrification is pushing out those who stayed behind.

 Chicago

2016 was a deadly year for Chicago – 9 families grieved every week! The highest homocide rate since 1997.  Its easier to get a gun than it is to get a job.
