HAUL ON THE BOWLINE (3)

So long, my boys, you been to sea
You cannot tie a bowline

Cho: Haul on the bowline the bowline haul

So long, my boys, you been to sea
You cannot tie a bowline

Cho: Haul on the bowline, the bowline haul

Grand Cho: A bowline, a bowline, you cannot tie a bowline
Haul on the bowline the bowline haul

Well, breeze & storm & sun & rain
I never seen a girl like Lucy Jane

I pulled her dress above her knee
She says "young man now let me be"

I'll tell me Ma when I get home
Them Windward girls won't leave me 'lone

They spend me money quick on shore
Pack me bag, to sea once more

This version was recorded in the Bahamas in the 1930's.
