A folk song is often a story
Bold Dighton - - Come all you bold heroes that plough the rough main, - Give ear to our story, the truth I'll explain. - It was our misfortune which happened in great war, - - And how we escaped from the French at Bastar. - 2. We were then confined on the Guadaloupe shore, - Of true valiant seamen four hundred or more, - Shut up in a small compass being greatly distressed, - With painful disease and famine oppressed. - - 3. A gallant young hero, from Saint Lucia he came, - Both generous and wealthy, called Dighton by name. - He had the heart of a lion, the soul of a prince, - And friends's kind impulse to us did evince. - - 4. He came to our prison, he mourned our sad fate, - He launched out his gold to relieve our sad state. - Five hundred bright guineas he gave, I am sure, - Which did greatly relieve us in this distressed hour.
