Greenland Fisheries

Traditional (North American, I think)
Rise Up Singing chapter: Seas and Sailors, p.202

D - - - / - - A - / D - G A / D G A - / D A D -

Alternate verse after the seamen die:

"Bad news, bad news!" our captain he cried
For it grieved his heart full sore
But the losing of that hundred barrel whale
It grieved him ten times more
