This was a popular, but fatalistic, nautical song written around 1815, telling of a mother's lament of her son's crippling in a meeting with a cannonball. The "foreign wars" in the last verse refers to the Peninsular Campaign of the Napoleonic wars of 1808-1814.

Lead Vocals: Preston Murchison, Doumbek: Craig Lutke, Tamborine: David Ruffin
