One More Day

Have you heard the news, my Johnny
One more day!
We're homeward bound tomorrow
Only one more day!

2. Don't you hear the old man growlin'
One more day!
Don't you hear the mate a howlin'
Only one more day!

3. Don't you hear the old man callin'
One more day!
Don't you hear the pilot bawlin'
Only one more day!

4. Only one more day a-howlin'
One more day!
Can't you hear the gals a-callin'
Only one more day!

5. Only one more day a-rollin'
One more day!
Can't you hear the gulls a-callin'
Only one more day!

6. Only one more day a-furlin'
One more day!
Only one more day a-cursin'
Only one more day!

7. Heave and sight the anchor, Johnny
One more day!
For we're close 'board the port, Johnny
Only one more day!

8. Put on your long-tail blue, Johnny
One more day!
For your payday's nearly due.
Only one more day!

9. We're homeward bound today, Johnny
One more day!
We'll leave her without sorrow, Johnny
Only one more day!

10. Pack your bags today, my Johnny
One more day!
O, an' leave her where she lies, Johnny
Only one more day!

11. No more gales or heavy weather
One more day!
Only one more day together
Only one more day!

12. Only one more day, my Johnny,
One more day!
O, rock and roll me over.
Only one more day!
