Look ahead, look a stern
Look the weather in the lee!
Blow high! Blow low! And so sailed we
I see a wreck to the windward
And a lofty ship to lee
A-sailing down along
The coast of High Barbary "Then hail her, o captain,"
He called o're the side
Blow high! Blow low! And so sailed we
"O are you a pirate
Or a man o' war?" he cried
A-sailing down along
The coast of High Barbary"O are you a pirate
Or a man o' war?" cried we
Blow high! Blow low! And so sailed we
"O no! I'm not a pirate
But a man-o-war," cried he
A-sailing down along
The coast of High BarbaryThen back up your topsails
And heave your vessel to
Blow high! Blow low! And so sailed we
For wе have got some lettеrs
To be carried home by you
A-sailing down along
The coast of High Barbary
We'll back up our topsails
And heave vessel to
Blow high! Blow low! And so sailed we
But only in safe harbor
And along the side of you
A-sailing down along
The coast of High BarbaryFor broadside, for broadside
They fought all on the main;
Blow high! Blow low! And so sailed we
Until at last the frigate
Shot the pirate's mast away
A sailing down along
The coast of High Barbary"For quarters, for quarters!"
The saucy pirates cried
Blow high! Blow low! And so sailed we
The quarters that we showed them
Was to sink them in the tide
A sailing down along
The coast of High BarbaryWith cutlass and gun
O we fought for hours three;
Blow high! Blow low! And so sailed we
The ship it was their coffin
And their grave it was the sea
A-sailing down along
The coast of High Barbary
But, oh, it was a cruel sight
And grieved us full sore
Blow high! Blow low! And so sailed we
To see them all a-drowning
As they tried to swim for shore
A-sailing down along
The coast of High BarbaryWith cutlass and gun
O we fought for hours three;
Blow high! Blow low! And so sailed we
The ship it was their coffin
And their grave it was the sea
A-sailing down along
The coast of High BarbaryLook ahead, look-astern
Look the weather in the lee!
Blow high! Blow low! And so sailed we
I see a wreck to the windward
And a lofty ship to lee
A-sailing down along
The coast of High Barbary
