Stewart Island Fisherman

Stewart Island Fisherman.

Stewart Island Fisherman,
Whither do you tack?
Hard a port to fishing grounds
And hard a starboard back
With ev'ry stitch of canvas on
Your saucy little smack.
Stewart Island Fisherman,
Cheerio! What luck?
Tossing on your fishing ground
Hidden to the truck
With nothing but a staysail and …
A mighty lot o’ pluck.
Stewart Island Fisherman,
Whither are you bound?
Wind abeam for Half Moon Bay
From your fishing ground
With ev'ry stitch of canvas. May
God speed you safe and sound.
