Dear 100 Hour Board,
I am trying to find a song I heard once a few years ago. All I remember is that:
it's kind of folks-y
follows a narrative
a man and woman are in love but do not end up together (he might be a pirate?)
she marries someone else, has a child
he finds her and convinces her to leave with him
there's a lyric about her making the decision to leave her child
later [on a ship?] there's a storm and death is eminent, she laments leaving her child
That's all I got. Anything?
-Pirate Love Song
Dear Elizabeth Turner,
Alas, I have searched high and low on the seas of the internet,but did not find your song. I'm sorry, but despite the clues I could not find the song you seek. If any readers know of the song please leave a comment below. Although I have failed in your quest, I did find a compilation album of old pirate shanties titled Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs, and Chanteys. It's chock full of good old pirate tunes if you're into that kinda stuff.
P.S. FYI, although most of the songs are clean, a few have foul language, as would be expected of pirate songs.
