Haul Away Joe
 
Traditional
 
When I was a little boy,
so my mother told me, TAMMY
Way haul away, we’ll haul away Joe
That if I did not kiss the girls,
my lips would all grow moldy, TAMMY
Way haul away, we’ll haul away Joe
 
Way, haul away,
the good ship now is rolling, TAMMY
Way haul away, we’ll haul away Joe
 
First I met a yankee girl
and she was fat and lazy, TAMMY
Way haul away, we’ll haul away Joe
And then I met an Irish girl,
she damn near drove me crazy, TAMMY
Way haul away, we’ll haul away Joe
 
St. Patrick was a gentleman,
he came form decent people, TAMMY
Way haul away, we’ll haul away Joe
He built a church in Dublin town and
on it put a steeple, TAMMY
Way haul away, we’ll haul away Joe
 
King Louis was the King of France
before the revo-lu-tion,
Way haul away, we’ll haul away Joe
And then he got his head cut off,
it spoiled his consti-tu-tion,
Way haul away, we’ll haul away Joe
 
Way haul away, we’re bound for
better weather, TAMMY
Way haul away, we’ll haul away Joe
