about

Here's The Tender Coming
From William Gillies Whittaker’s North Countrie Ballads, Songs & Pipe-Tunes (1921). The Press Gang was An early form of conscription into the navy in time of war. TAking men away from home for an indefinite period, but certainly years, and exposing them to extreme danger and poor conditions, it wasn’t a popular choice and the gangs ‘impressed’ them against their will. The wives and children left behind were left to fend without a breadwinner.
Track illustration: George Hodge 'A ship of the line' 1790

lyrics

Here’s the tender coming, pressing all the men
Oh dear, hinny, what will we do then
Here’s the tender coming off at Shield’s Bar
Here’s the tender coming, full of men of war

Hide thee, canny Geordie, hide thyself away
Hide thee till the tender makes for Druid’s Bay
If they take thee, Geordie, who’s to win our bread?
Me and little Jackie better off be dead

Here’s the tender coming, stealing of my dear
O dear, hinny, they’ll ship you out of here
They will ship you foreign that is what it means
Here’s the tender coming, full of red marines

Hey, bonny lassie, let’s go to the Hawe
See the tender lying off at Shields Bar
With her colours flying, anchor at her bow
Took my bonnie laddie, best of all the crew
