Legend Of The Captain's Daughter

The ship went down in the icy water
Captain cried where is my daughter
Put her in a life boat
She must go free
Tie my body to the masthead
I would rather see myself dead
Than to see her drowning in the sea

Wild geese were flying low
Saw the sinking ship below
Heard the final cries of the crew
A vigil through the stormy night
And with the dawn, no life in sight
So onward to the south
The wild geese flew

People came from miles around
To save some souls, not one was found
And never did they find the captain's child
Somewhere off the coast of Iceland
Near a fearful rooky island
Swims the damsel in the ocean wild

Often in the night a-passin'
Sailors hear a frightful laughin'
From the rocks
A warnin' to stay clear

Some folks say it is the maiden
All alone and still forsaken
Waiting for the angels to appear

If you sail the northern waters
And you meet the captain's daughter
Leave her golden apples one two three
Do not cast away your eyes
Do not speak to her with lies
Else you will never leave the Iceland sea

For I have lived beneath the deep
The oceans and her secrets keep
And I know where the legends come and go
Where kings and queens and paupers too
Have written down the truth for you
And time is now
And will be long ago
