Sacramento - Lyrics & Chords


bully ship and a bully crew,
Hoo-dah, to me hoo-dah,
bully mate and a captain, too
Hoo-dah,  hoo-dah  day.


Then blow, boys, blow
For  Californi- o,
There's  plenty of gold
So  I've been told
On the b anks of the  Sacramen to.

Round Cape Horn in the months of snows,
Hoo-dah, to me hoo-dah,
If we get there nobody knows,
Hoo-dah, hoo-dah day.

Oh around the Horn with a mainsail set,
Around Cape Horn and we're all wringing wet.

Oh, around Cape Horn in the month of May,
Oh, around Cape Horn is a very long way.

To the Sacramento we're bound away,
To the Sacramento's a hell of a way.

Oh, a bully ship with a bully crew,
But the mate is a bastard through and through.

Ninety days to 'Frisco Bay,
Ninety days is damn good pay.

Sing and heave and heave and sing,
Heave and make them handspikes ring.

I wish to God I'd never been born,
To go a-rambling around Cape Horn.
