I made this video to go with the Unthanks' beautiful version of this old Northumbrian folk tune from the early 1800's. The material used was freely downloaded from online video sites, mainly vimeo. Editing of the clips used was minimal, and I put the whole thing together using Corel Video Studio Pro 4.

Lyrics:

Here's the tender coming, pressing all the men
Oh dear hinny, what shall 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 hinny, hide thyself away
Hide thee till the frigate makes for Druridge 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 off my dear
Oh 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 Lawe
To see the tender lying off at Shield's Bar
With her colours flying anchor at her bow
They took my bonny laddie best of all the crew

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

Here's the tender, coming pressing all the men
Oh dear hinny what shall we do then?
