Ballad of the Mayflower

- Linda G. Paulsen

There was a ship, Mayflower by name; Hey, Ho -
Took a trip, she crossed the main; Hey, Ho -
Full of people seeking peace,
Praying for freedom to increase;
Hey, Ho, Dee-o, Dee-o!

The Pilgrims came to Plymouth Rock; Hey, Ho -
Simple people, sturdy stock; Hey, Ho -
To be free they crossed the sea,
Thanked the Lord on bended knee; Hey, Ho, Dee-o, Dee-o! mayflower

How when the crops were gathered in; Hey, Ho -
A dinner party did begin; Hey, Ho -
Pilgrims, Indians, pumpkin pie, Turkey, venison, corn, oh my!
Hey, Ho, Dee-o, Dee-o!

Bet you thought my song was done; Hey, Ho -
But I've really just begun; Hey, Ho -
Ever since that autumn day,
Thanksgiving has been here to stay, Hey, Ho, Dee-o, Dee-o!
