South Australia
Fishermen's Friends Lyrics


In South Australia I was born
Heave away, haul away
In South Australia, 'round Cape Horn,
We're bound for South Australia

Haul away your rolling king
Heave away, haul away
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia

As I went out one morning fair
Heave away, haul away
'Twas there I met Miss Nancy Blair
We're bound for South Australia

Haul away your rolling king
Heave away, haul away
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia

I shook her up, I shook her down
Heave away, haul away
I shook her 'round about the town
We're bound for South Australia

Haul away your rolling king
Heave away, haul away
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia

There was just one thing that grieved me mind
Heave away, haul away
That's leaving Nancy Blair behind
We're bound for South Australia

Haul away your rolling king
Heave away, haul away
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia

As we went down around Cape Horn
Heave away, haul away
You'll wish to God you've never been born
We're bound for South Australia

Haul away your rolling king
Heave away, haul away
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia

In South Australia I was born
Heave away, haul away
In South Australia, 'round Cape Horn
We're bound for South Australia

Haul away your rolling king
Heave away, haul away
Haul away, you'll hear me sing

We're bound for South Australia

As a South Aussie born of Cornish descent, I love this version!

Shoot, I'm a Texan from one of the flattest prairies on earth, and I love this song. Good on ya, mate.

If you reflect cornish seafarer is the origin of the hard to replicate Australian accent. Well it's a hypothesis but looking back on it it lines up.

Sarah Forbes

Same for me

Danny Polglase

Ernst Becker

Ya don't have to be an Australian to love this song.
