And for fun, here’s Elizabeth Singing the verse of the Song
(in case y'all are wondering, she sings a little off key, so this might not sound 
I tabbed it to her voice)

“Some men have died
and some are alive
and others sail on the sea
with the keys to the cage
and the Devil to pay
we lay to Fiddler's Green

The bell has been raised
from it's watery grave
Do you hear it's sepulchral tone?
We are a call to all,
pay heed the squall
and turn your sail toward home

Yo, ho, haul together,
hoist the colors high.
Heave ho, thieves and beggars,
never shall we die."

And there ya go.

Made a few corrections at least to my ear though without your tab it would've taken me ages. Thank you and here are my revisions.
