Wade Hemsworth – The Franklin Expedition

I dreamed a dream I thought was true
Concernin’ Franklin and his jovial crew
That from old Engaland they sailed away
To the frozen ocean in the month of May

Now ’tis more than any man can do
With heart undaunted and courage true
And many’s wife is leaved to mourn
In grief and sorrow for their return

There’s Captain Austin from Scarboro town
Brave Captain Ross of high renown
And there’s Granville and Penny and many a more
Have long been a-searchin’ the Arctic shore

In Baffin’s Bay, where the whale-a-fish blow
The death of Franklin, no onе do know
Nor the death of Franklin, no tongue can tеll
Lord Franklin along with his sailors do dwell
