this song brings a tear to me eye. you can laugh but Ill kick your ass. Dylan is one of my favorite humans, I worry about the day he dies. I dont want to think about the tailspin of depression that will cause me.
1. well, it's all of fair and handsome girl,
She's all in her tender years.
She fell in love with a sailor boy,
It's true she loved him well.
For to go off to sea with him
Like she did not know how,
She longed to see that seaport town
2. so she bargained with the sailor boy,
All for a piece of gold.
Straightaway then he led her
Down into the hold,
Sayin', "i'll dress you up in sailor's clothes,
Your jacket shall be blue.
You'll see that seaport town
3. now, when the other sailors heard the news,
Well, they fell into a rage,
And with all the ship's company
They were willing to engage.
Saying, "we'll tie her hands and feet, my boys,
Overboard we'll throw her.
She'll never see that seaport town
4. now, when the captain he heard the news,
Well, he too fell in a rage,
And with the whole ship's company
He was willing to engage,
Sayin', "she'll stay in sailor's clothes,
Her color shall be blue,
She'll see that seaport town
5. now, when they come down to canada
Scarcely 'bout half a year,
She's married this bold captain
Who called her his dear.
She's dressed in silks and satins now,
She cuts a gallant show,
Finest of the ladies
6. come, all you fair and tender girls,
Wheresoever you may be,
I'd have you to follow your own true love
Whene'er he goes to sea.
For if the sailors prove false to you,
Well, the captain, he might prove true.
You'll see the honor I have gained
By the wearing of the blue.

30,000 years ago a caveman blew paint over his hand on a cave wall. It still exists to this day... Think of that. A thing of beauty is a joy...
