old republican ballad titled "THE BIG SHIP"

Maggie wrote to me with the following request:

"please can you trace a favourite ballad of mine. i think it is call "the big ship is sailing" the word of the ballad goes

the big ship is sail across the blue ocean
farewell lovely annie i bid you adieu
for i am in danger and i fear every stranger
in village and city who walk by my side.

but our names they were given by a judus imformer. i remember his face he fought right beside me.

this is all i remember of the song but it might help someone recall the text of the song. maggie"
