Lyrics

The Dubliners

In South Australia I was born
To me heave away, haul away
In South Australia round Cape Horn

[Chorus]
We're bound for South Australia
Haul away you rolling kings
To me heave away, haul away
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia

As I walked out one morning fair
To me heave away, haul away
'Twas there I met Miss Nancy Blair
Chorus:

I shook her up and I shook her down
To me heave away, haul away
I shook her round and round the town

[Chorus]

I run her all night and I run her all day
To me heave away, haul away
And I run her until we sailed away
Chorus:

There ain't but one thing grieves me mind
To me heave away, haul away
To leave Miss Nancy Blair behind
Chorus:

And as we wallop around Cape Horn
To me heave away, haul away
You'll wish to God you'd never been born
Chorus:

In South Australia my native land
To me heave away, haul away
Full of rocks and thieves and fleas and sand

[Chorus]

I wish I was on Australia's strand
To me heave away, haul away
With a bottle of whiskey in my hand

[Chorus]
