Bold Riley

Our anchor's aweigh and our sails are all set,
Bold Riley-oh, boom-a- lay!
And the folks we are leaving, we'll never forget,
Bold Riley-oh, gone away!

Chorus:
Goodbye, me darlin', goodbye, me dear-oh,
Bold Riley-oh, boom-a-lay,
Goodbye, me darlin' goodbye, me dear-oh,
Bold Riley-oh, gone away.

2. Wake up Mary Ellen, and don't look so glum,
Bold Riley-oh, boom-a- lay!
By Whitestocking time, you'll be drinking hot rum.
Bold Riley-oh, gone away!
Chorus:

3. The rain it is raining now all the day long,
Bold Riley-oh, boom-a- lay!
And the northerly wind, it does blow so strong.
Bold Riley-oh, gone away!
Chorus:

4. We're outward and bound for Bengal bay,
Bold Riley-oh, boom-a- lay!
Get bendin', me boys, it's a hell of a way.
Bold Riley-oh, gone away!
Chorus:
