Great Big Sea – General Taylor lyrics
Well General Taylor gained the day,
Walk'em along John carry him along,
Well General Taylor gained the day,
Carry him to his burying ground.
Chorus:
Tell me where is Stormy,
Walk'em along John carry him along,
Tell me where is Stormy,
Carry him to his burying ground.
We'll dig his grave with a silver spade,
Walk'em along John carry him along.
His shroud of the finest silk will be made,
Carry him to his burying ground.[Chorus:]
We'll lower him down on a golden chain,
Walk'em along John carry him along.
On every inch we'll carve his name,
Carry him to his burying ground.[Chorus:]
General Taylor he's all the go,
Walk'em along John carry him along.
He's gone where the stormy winds won't blow,
Carry him to his burying ground.[Chorus:]
General Taylor he's dead and he's gone,
Walk'em along John carry him along.
Well, General Taylor he's long dead and gone,
Carry him to his burying ground.(Chorus-repeat)
