Jimmy Judge
Jimmy Judge was this young man's name, I'm going to let you know, And I mean to sing his praises wherever I do go. For he was as fine a young man as ever the sun shone on, And 'twas on that Bonneshai River that he was drownded on. Come all you wild young heroes that run the restless deep, Just think of the sad fate of him who now beneath you sleeps. It was of as fine a young man as ever the sun shined on, Down on those foaming waters he found a dismal doom. It was on the Bonneshai River aways below Renfrew That he went to break the jam and with it he went through. In spite of his activity his precious life to save, In vain was his exertion; he found a watery grave. It was early the next morning the raftman all did join. They all sailed out together this young man for to find. They searched the deep in every place where the current does so fly, It was a fisher boy, as I am told, his floating corpe did spy. It would melt your heart with pity when they brought him on the shore For to see his handsome features with the rocks all cut and tore, To see so fine a young man all in his youthful bloom. Down on those foaming waters he found a dismal doom. Oh the lass that loved him dearly, she cried, "Now I'm undone!" Likewise his aged parents, they cried "My darlin son." But now he is in Paradise and happy he may be, For I hope in heaven his soul will shine for all eternity.
