some sailor from the US Coast Guard, 1880-1900?

Full many a sailor points with pride
To cruises o’er the ocean wide;
But they cannot compare with me,
For I have sailed the Bering Sea.

2. While though you’ve weathered fiercest gale
And every ocean, you have sailed;
You cannot a salty sailor be
Until you've sailed the Bering Sea.


This song was sung by sailors on the Bering Sea Patrol. If anybody can supply additional verses, please send me an e-mail.
