Man-O-War Sailor

Man-o-war sailor, you better le' me go
     Man-o-war sailor, ho-heave-ho
Man-o-war sailor, I'm try-ing to go home;
     Man-o-war sailor, ho-heave-ho
Man-o-war sailor, I'm go-ing home.
     Man-o-war sailor, ho-heave-ho

Man-o-war sailor, I'm go-ing home;
     Man-o-war sailor, ho-heave-ho
Man-o-war sailor, I'm rowing home;
     Man-o-war sailor, ho-heave-ho
Man-o-war sailor, the current going home.
     Man-o-war sailor, ho-heave-ho

Etc. ad lib.

From Roger Abraham Deep the Water and Shallow the Shore
Note: Rowing shanty from small-boat fishermen. "Man-o-war"
probably refers to Man-o-war Bay in Tobago, rather than one who
shipped on a man-o-war.
