Haul on the Bowline (3)

Haul on the Bowline (3)

So long, my boys, you been to sea
 You cannot tie a bowline

 Cho: Haul on the bowline the bowline haul

 So long, my boys, you been to sea
 You cannot tie a bowline

 Cho: Haul on the bowline, the bowline haul

 Grand Cho: A bowline, a bowline, you cannot tie a bowline
               Haul on the bowline the bowline haul

 Well, breeze & storm & sun & rain
 I never seen a girl like Lucy Jane

 I pulled her dress above her knee
 She says "young man now let me be"

 I'll tell me Ma when I get home
 Them Windward girls won't leave me 'lone

 They spend me money quick on shore
 Pack me bag, to sea once more

This version was recorded in the Bahamas in the 1930's.
