All through the rain and squally weather
Oh, my rolling river
All through the rain and squally weather
We are bound away from this world of misery

Misery, I come to tell you
All through this rain and wind all squally

Salambo, I love your daughter
Salambo, this white mulatta

Seven long years we toiled the ocean
Seven long years I never wrote her

All through the rain and squally weather
All through this rain and windy squally

Misery, my captain cry out
Solid fas', my bowman cry out

I courted Sally, no pen no paper
I courted Sally with foolscap paper

From Roger Abrahams's Deep the Water, Shallow the Shore.
