Lyrics

300 Girls

My trunk has been stowed away
From the evening I came on board
I stand at the starboard bow
I strain but can’t see any shore

The waves look so cold and dark
Salt in the air stings my skin
Part of me wants to survive
Part of me wants to jump in

Oh ooh oh whoah oh oh
Oh ooh oh whoah oh oh
Oh ooh oh whoah oh oh
Oh oh

Catherine had stolen some silk
Mary got caught with her love
I swear that I’ve done nothing wrong
Why can’t the truth be enough?

I can’t lose my mother’s face
I’m told I will never see home
If the captain should summon me
What choice will I have but to go?

Oh ooh oh whoah oh oh
Oh ooh oh whoah oh oh
Oh ooh oh whoah oh oh
Oh oh

300 girls below deck
Our lives are no longer our own
I pray and I pray and I pray
But it’s hard to have hope all alone

Oh ooh oh whoah oh oh
Oh ooh oh whoah oh oh
Oh ooh oh whoah oh oh
Oh oh
