Lyrics

Haul Away Joe

Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe!

When I was a little lad
My mother often told me,
Way, haul a[Am]way, we'll haul away, Joe!
That if I did not kiss the girls
Me lips would all grow moldy.
Way, haul away, we'll haul away, Joe!

Chorus:
Way, haul away, we're bound for better weather,
Way, haul away, we'll haul away, Joe!
Way, haul away, we'll haul and sing together,
Way, haul away, we'll haul away, Joe!

First I had an Spanish girl, but she was fat and lazy.
Way, haul away, we'll haul away, Joe!
ThenI had an English maid, she damn near drove me crazy.
Way, haul away, we'll haul away, Joe!

Chorus

Then I got meself an Irish girl, her name was Maggie Flannigan,
She stole me boots, she stole me clothes, she pinched me plate and pannikin

Chorus

You may talk about your Bristol gals and round-the-corner-Sallies
But none can hold a candle to the girls from down our alley

Chorus

So listen while I sing to you about me darling Nancy
She's copper-bottomed, clipper-built, she's just me style and fancy

Chorus

Once I was a land lubber a'digging turf and taties.
But now I'm on a Yankee ship a haulin' on the braces.

Chorus

We squared our yards and away we rolled, with the fiddles playing handy
With a roll and go, and a westward ho, and a Yankee Doodle Dandy

Chorus
