Lyrics

Haul Away Joe

When I was just a little lad or so me mammy told me,
(Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.)
That if I didn't kiss the girls me lips would grow a-moldy.
(Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.)

{Chorus}
Away (Ho!) haul away! we'll haul away together!
Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.
Away (Ho!) haul away! we'll haul for better weather.
Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

I used to have an Irish girl, but she got fat and lazy
(Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.)
But now I've got a Bristol girl, and she just drives me crazy
(Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.)

{Chorus}
Old Louis was the king of France before the revolut-i-on.
(Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.)
But then he got his head chopped off an' it spoiled his constitut-i-on.
(Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.)

{Chorus}
You call yourself a second mate, you cannae tie a bowline,
(Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.)
You can't even stand up straight, when the packet she's a rollin'
(Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.)

{Chorus}
Well now can't you see the black clouds a-gatherin'.
(Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.)
Well now can't you see the storm clouds a-risin'.
(Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.)

{Chorus}
