Hanging Johnny

Hanging Johnny

Traditional - Lyrics from Iron Men & Wooden Ships, by Frank Shay


They call me Hanging Johnny,
Away-i-oh;
They call me Hanghing Johnny,
So hang, boys, hang!

First I hung my mother,
Away-i-oh;
Then I hung my brother,
So hang, boys, hang!

Hang and haul together,
Away-i-oh;
Hang for better weather,
So hang, boys, hang!
