Subject: Lyr Add: AWAY HAUL AWAY (from Stan Kelly)

From SAILORS' SONGS & SEA SHANTIES, just out by Highpoint Recordings, it is a collection from the TOPIC catalogue. This version of Haul Away, Joe, sung by Stan Kelly. I think I have just one problem in the transcription (but maybe there are more mistakes than I'm aware of). It is in the first stanza. Please, help. Thank you. Roberto

Talk about your harbour girls, Round-the corner Sally
Away, haul away, haul away me Rosie
Away, haul away, haul away me Johnny-O
But they wouldn't go to ... (tea???) with the girls from Booble Alley
Away, haul away, haul away me Rosie
Away, haul away, haul away me Johnny-O

King Louie was the king of France before the Revolution
Away, haul away, haul away me Rosie
Away, haul away, haul away me Johnny-O
But the people cut his off and it spoiled his constitution
Away, haul away, haul away me Rosie
Away, haul away, haul away me Johnny-O

Well now I live in Liverpool bound for the Bay of Mexico
Away, haul away, haul away me Rosie
Away, haul away, haul away me Johnny-O
I thought I heard the Old Man say – It's time for us to roll and go
Away, haul away, haul away me Rosie
Away, haul away, haul away me Johnny-O

This is what Jon Boden sings, if that helps:


When I was a little lad or so my mother told me
(Chorus)
Away haul away we'll haul away for Rosie
Away haul away we'll haul away for Johnnie-o

And if I didn't kiss the girls my lips would go all mouldy
(Chorus)

King Louis was the king of France before the revolution
(Chorus)

But then he got his head cut off which spoiled his constitution
(Chorus x 3)

I think the first line is: "Talk about your harbour girls around the corner Sally" but I'm not sure

It's clearly "Well now I'm leaving Liverpool" not "I live in Liverpool" (whatever mainlynorfolk.info says!)

We tend to treat Sea Shanties Lyrics as being one set of verses and always being sung in a set order.

In real life shanties were mixed about, verses changed. new subject material added based on the shanty singer own experiences, the local whores at the last port, or got the pox, the ships cat or dog name, how well the Mates were regarded, the port the ship sailed from, how drunk the crew was before signing on, etc etc.

These songs were never static, they were constantly envoling, so what we now know as a particular shanty, are in general the most common verses cleaned up and recorded.
