Oh, My Rolling River

Oh, My Rolling River

All through the rain and squally weather
     Oh, my rolling river
All through the rain and squally weather
     We are bound away from this world of misery

Misery, I come to tell you
All through this rain and wind all squally

Salambo, I love your daughter
Salambo, this white mulatta

Seven long years we toiled the ocean
Seven long years I never wrote her

All through the rain and squally weather
All through this rain and windy squally

Misery, my captain cry out
Solid fas', my bowman cry out

I courted Sally, no pen no paper
I courted Sally with foolscap paper
From Roger Abrahams's Deep the Water, Shallow the Shore.
