Haul Away Joe


When I was a little lad and so me mother told me, to me.
Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

That if I did not kiss the girls me lips would all grow moldy, to me.
Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

Way haul away, me boys, the good ship now is rolling, to me.
Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

Away haul away, me boys, we'll haul for better weather, to me.
Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

Away haul away, me boys, we'll haul away together, to me.
Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

King Louis was the king of France before the revolution.
Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

And then he got his head chopped off it spoiled his constitution.
Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

Saint Patrick was a gentleman.  He came from decent people, to me.
Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

He built a church in Dublin town and on it put a steeple, to me.
Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

Once I was in Ireland a'digging turf and taties, to me.
Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

But now I'm on a Yankee ship a'hauling on the braces, to me.
Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

Once I had a German girl but she was fat and lazy, to me.
Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

But now I got a Yankee girl, she damn near drives me crazy, to me.
Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe.
