Artist/Band: Great Big Sea
Lyrics for Song: Yarmouth Town
Lyrics for Album: Sea Of No Cares [2002]



In Yarmouth Town

there lived a man

He had a little tavern by the Strand

And the landlord has a daughter fair

pretty little thing with golden hair



Won't ya come down

Won't ya come down

Won't ya come down to Yarmouth Town



One night there came a sailor man

he asked the daughter for her hand

"Well, I won't marry you," she said

"I have all I want without being wed

But if with me you'd like to linger

I'll tie some string around my finger

And as ya walk by pull on my string

and I'll come down and let you right in



Won't ya come down

Won't ya come down

Won't ya come down to Yarmouth Town

Won't ya come down

Won't ya come down

Won't ya come down to Yarmouth Town



Well, the very next day at closing time

the sailor man goes off to the Strand

And as he walks by, pull son that string

and she came down and let him right in

Now he's never seen such a sight before--

A string around her finger was all she wore



Oh, Won't ya come down

Won't ya come down

Won't ya come down to Yarmouth Town

Won't ya come down

Won't ya come down

Won't ya come down to Yarmouth Town



So all you men who to Yarmouth go

You see those girls with their hair hung low

All ya gotta do is pull on their strings

and they'll come down and let you right in



Won't ya come down

Won't ya come down

Won't ya come down to Yarmouth Town

Oh, won't ya come down

Won't ya come down

Won't ya come down to Yarmouth Town
