Heave Away

Heave Away published on

Come get your duds in order
Cause we’re bound to cross the water
Heave away, me jollies, heave away
Come get your duds in order
Cause we’re bound to leave tomorrow
Heave away me jolly boys, we’re all bound away

Sometimes we’re bound for Liverpool
Sometimes we’re bound for Spain
Heave away, me jollies, heave away
But now we’re bound for Old St John’s
Where all the girls are dancing
Heave away me jolly boys, we’re all bound away

I wrote me love a letter
I was on the Jenny Lind
Heave away, me jollies, heave away
I wrote me love a letter
And I signed it with a ring
Heave away me jolly boys, we’re all bound away

Now it’s farewell Nancy darling
For it’s now I’m going to leave you
Heave away, me jollies, heave away
You promised that you’d marry me
But how you did deceive me
Heave away me jolly boys, we’re all bound away
