St. Peter Down At Courland Bay

St. Peter, St. Peter, down at Courland Bay,
St. Peter, St. Peter, down in Courland Bay!

An' the water is very fresh an' feel fresh an' gay,
St. Peter, St. Peter, down in Courland Bay!

I'm goin' to take you to St. Peter's on that day,
St. Peter, St. Peter, down in Courland Bay!

I'm goin' to buy you silks an' laces on that day,
St. Peter, St. Peter, down in Courland Bay!

St. Peter, St. Peter, down at Courland Bay,
St. Peter, St. Peter, down in Courland Bay!

I'm goin' to drink rum an' be dancin' on that day,
St. Peter, St. Peter, down in Courland Bay!

St. Peter, St. Peter, down at Courland Bay,
St. Peter, St. Peter, down in Courland Bay!

An' the water is very fresh an' feel fresh an' gay,
St. Peter, St. Peter, down in Courland Bay!

Saint Peter's Day is June 29, during the Fishermen's Fête. Neil was drawn to this shanty from Roger D. Abrahams's collection Deep the Water, Shallow the Shore – a song for the fisherman coming to the Fête.
