Sea Song

Mp3 file


Many a poor young boy Have heard the ocean call
Life upon the ocean Made a sailor of them all
Grandpa was a sailor The ocean was his floor
One stormy night he stumbled Now he’s gone forever more

Now the sailor makes a living One step away from deathship
The sea is full of danger And there ain’t no time to rest
The Captain is a mean man But he knows the sea real well
Hey ho and up she’ll go He’ll send us all to hell

Hey haul away Joe The wind is blowing free
Hey haul away Joe Into the roaring sea
There’s a girl in every harbor Crying her eyes red
Ah her ship won’t be coming `Cause her poor sailors dead

Now the wind knows every sailor And the devil knows their names
At night we hear him calling In the dark he’ll make his claim
You better stay awake boy He’s out to get your soul
No place left to hide boy The sea is dark and cold

Hey haul away Joe The wind is blowing free
Hey haul away Joe Into the roaring sea
There’s a girl in every harbor Crying her eyes red
Ah her ship won’t be coming `Cause her poor sailors dead

Like my father done before me And his fathers father too
I`m going to the Captain Sail away is what I`ll do
I`m headed for the ocean A shortcut to my grave
Please say a prayer for me Once a poor boy now a slave

Last night I dreamed of heaven I saw the pearly gate
The good Lord stood above me And said thou are to late
Said go back to the ocean Heaven’s not for thee
There’s nothing I can do boy The devil rules the sea

anchor

Hey haul away Joe The sun is sinking low
Hey haul away Joe Into the sea you’ll go

There’s a girl in every harbor Crying her eyes red
Ah her ship won’t be coming `Cause her poor sailors dead

Hey haul away Joe The wind is blowing free
Hey haul away Joe Into the roaring sea
There’s a girl in every harbor Crying her eyes red
Ah her ship won’t be coming `Cause her poor sailors dead
