Shanty Man's Life lyrics

Rating: 3.59
Song Details
Artist(s)Mark Lanegan
Album(s)I'll Take Care Of You

Steven Harrison Paulus
*note:it has been said that the version
of this song done by Dave Van Ronk is the one
that inspired Lanegan to record it.
A shanty man's life
Is a wearisome one
Though some say it's free from care
It's the swinging of an axe
From morning 'till night
In the forest wild and drear
Transported as we are
From a lady so fair
To the banks of some lonely stream
Where the wolf, bear, and owl
Give a terrifying howl
And disturb our nightly dreams
Oh sleeping at night
In our bunks without cheer
While the cold winter winds do blow
But as soon as the morning
Star does appear
To the wild woods we must go
Had we ale, wine, or beer
Our spirits far to cheer
When we're in those woods so wild
Where a glass of whiskey shone
When we're in the woods alone
For to pass away our long exile
A shanty man's life
Is a wearisome one
Tho some say it's free from care
It's the swinging of an axe
From morning 'till night
In the forest wild and drear
