Lyrics

These lyrics are based off the video released by The Longest Johns in April 2020



{Chorus}
Fare thee well, ye icy acres
Fare thee well, ye whaling grounds
Fare thee well, ye banks of Greenland
Weary whalers homeward bound


{Chorus}

Homeward breezes bend the blossom
Where the oak and the apples grow
God forgot the green in Greenland
Made the flowers from ice and snow


{Chorus}

Home where grasses lace the meadows
By the waters running free
And the rivers sweetly flowing
Turn towards the open sea


{Chorus}

Six long months we've been a-hunting
Through a hell of frozen flame
Now like sails, our hearts are billowing
As we turn for home again


{Chorus x2 til End}
