Haul on the Bowline

Haul on the Bowline

Traditional - Lyrics from Songs of American Sailormen, by Joanna Colcord


Haul on the bowline, our bully ship's a rolling,
Haul on the bowline, the bowline Haul!

Haul on the bowline, Kitty is my darlin',
Haul on the bowline, the bowline Haul!

Haul on the bowline, Kitty lives in Liverpool,
Haul on the bowline, the bowline Haul!

Haul on the bowline, the old man is a growlin',
Haul on the bowline, the bowline Haul!

Haul on the bowline, it's a far cry to payday,
Haul on the bowline, the bowline Haul!

Haul on the bowline, so early in the morning.
Haul on the bowline, the bowline Haul!
