Song Description

The father in the song was a whale hunter. ca 1900-1950.

Lyrics


I remember my father

I remember my father as he stood by the gate
I was much younger then, maybe seven or eight
And the smell of his jacket the spread of his hands
As he's leaving home for his work in some far distant lands

He came to the northlands where the whale fishes blow
Deep in the place where the eskimos go
In the wastes of the icebergs in their skin canoes
Just the sound of the sea and the ice all deep green and blue

They were close to the walrus and watching the seals
As they danced on the ocean riding hard on their heels
When a man with a harpoon made of steel and bone
Threw it deep in a whalefish that sank with the speed of a stone

It took down the harpoon it took down half the crew
Their boat was so icebound there was nothing they could do
So they hauled on the rope still attached to the line
And my father came up, thanks to god, for it wasn't his time

In the home of the Icelanders the summers are green
All yellow, vermillion and all colours between
He drifted out of the ocean and came to that shore
To the summers that lasted all night till the dark of the fall

And he took to a girl with gold in her hair
She lived by the fjord where the whales take the air
And the song of the whales could be heard on the land
From the sound of the waters and the volcanic black sand

When the rain falls like sunbeams it softens the snow
And the moon and the stars shine wherever you go
When the sun meets the ocean the hour grows late
I remember my father (he) stood there looking back from the gate
