Lyrics

Turnagain Arm

My name is Jack Tar like my father before
I signed on to sail where no man had explored
I had nary a notion of what we would find
I was green as the hills we were leaving behind

The great Resolution she rocked in the bay
I trembled to see her that very first day
My sweetheart she waved as we turned in the wind
And I wondered if I'd ever see her again

Hey boys we've traveled so far
Thru the Straits of Magellan - round the mighty Cape Horn
Turn again turn again turn about hard
It's a long way to London from Turnagain Arm

My name is James Cook I received my command
For my king and my country I claimed distant lands
One final challenge was given to me
Head east from Alaska to the frozen North Sea

We sailed up the coast of the new Spanish crown
There was never a doubt that the way would be found
For the Glory of England that the Empire may rise
For the one who gains passage -the ultimate prize

Hey boys we've traveled so far
Thru the Straits of Magellan - round the mighty Cape Horn
Turn again turn again turn about hard
It's a long way to London from Turnagain Arm

We watched from our village the day they arrived
Strange ships with their masts reaching up to the sky
They searched for a river that never would end
They tried and they tried but they turned back again
We could have told them it was never to be
One place on this earth remains sacred and free

Hey boys we've traveled so far
Thru the Straits of Magellan - round the mighty Cape Horn
Turn again turn again turn about hard
It's a long way to London from Turnagain Arm
