Lyrics: Have you heard the news of my boy Jack?
He set sail upon the sea
When do you think that he’ll come back?
This distance is sickening me

Has anyone had word from him?
For the wind is blowing strong
And what is sunk will hardly swim
With the tide that’s moving on

My love what comfort can I find?
In days as they pass by
My dear jack he sailed to sea for to not shame his kind

I’ll hold my head up all the more
This son that I have bore
With all my heart I grieve for him
And will forever more

'Gorgeous vocals that come intimately to the forefront; the harmonies complimenting each other beautifully whilst each voice individually grabs and ravels you in, forcing you to listen intently' - For Folk's Sake (extract from EP review)
