- Have you news of my boy Jack?
- Not this tide.
- When d'you think that he'll come back?
- Not with this wind blowing and this tide.
- Has anyone else had word of him?
- Not this tide.
- For what is sunk will hardly swim,
- Not with this wind blowing and this tide.
- Oh, dear, what comfort can I find?
- None this tide, nor any tide,
- Except he did not shame his kind-
- Not even with that wind blowing, and that tide.
- Then hold your head up all the more,
This tide,
And every tide;
- Because he was the son you bore,
And gave to that wind blowing and that tide.
