Excerpt from Salt-Water Ballads
Fever-chills; He tottered out of the alleway with cheeks the colour of paste
One of the Bo'sun's Yarns; Loafin' around in Sailor Town, a-bluin' o' my advance
Hell's Pavement; 'When I'm discharged in Liverpool 'n' draws my bit o' pay'
Sea-Change; 'Goneys an' gullies an' all o' the birds o' the sea'
Harbour-Bar; All in the feathered palm-tree tops the bright green parrots screech
The Turn of the Tide; An' Bill can have my sea-boots, Nigger Jim can have my knife
One of Wally's Yarns; The watch was up on the topsail-yard a-making fast the sail
