Subject: Lyr Req: Time now to leave you (Tony Rose?)
From: GUEST,Silas

Trying to find the lyrics to this great parting song that I remember Tony singing years ago, as far as I can remember it goes;

Its time now to leave you
Haul away the anchor
Haul away the anchor
Its leaving time.


Anyone help?

Would this be it?

1. Time to Go

Its time to go now
All the holds are laden
All the holds are laden
For our leaving Time
Its time to go now all the Flags are flying
Its time to go now all the Flags are flying
For our leaving Time
Its time to Go now
Heave away the Anchor
Heave away the Anchor
For our leaving Time
Its Time to go now
Wind is in the canvas
Wind is in the canvas
For our leaving time....

That loks very much like it, though I seem to recall a 'topsail' verse somewhere.

Thanks very much!

More likely to be the "Farewell Shanty":

THE FAREWELL SHANTY

It's time to go now.
Haul away your anchor.
Haul away your anchor.
'Tis our sailing time.

Get some sail upon her.
Haul away your halyards.
Haul away your halyards.
'Tis our sailing time.

Get her on her course now.
Haul away your foresheets.
Haul away your foresheets.
'Tis our sailing time.

Waves are breaking under.
Haul away down-channel.
Haul away down-channel.
On the evening tide.

When my time is over.
Haul away for Heaven.
Haul away for Heaven.
God be at my side.

Usually attributed to Mervyn Vincent but apparently only popularised by him in the 60s.

See the Digital Tradition and threads on the song for more detail.

Actually, these look like being versions of the same song, at least they would fit to the same tune.

'Doc tom' said this in a recent thread here:

Tony, of course, was very much part of the south-west singing tradition and would most probably have sung the version popularised by Mervyn, and by Johnny Collins at so many shanty festivals.

Cos tells us that Mervyn found the words of the Farewell Shanty in an old (small, red) book, and that Charlie Bate worked out the tune for it on the box, aided and abetted by Fi.
