Captain Gordon’s Welcome Home: a New Song in Praise of his taking the French Privateers

Verse 1: ‘Now Brave Captain Gordon’s come, / And brought more Prizes with him home / Let’s Drink a Cup full to the brim, / In Health to Captain Gordon, / Because where ever he appears, / He clears Our Coasts of Privateers, / Makes Merchant Ships Trade without fears / Through out the Northern Ocean.’ The ballad was to be sung ‘To an Excellent New Tune, Hark I hear the Cannons Roar’. for more click here
