Let Her Run
Bellowhead Lyrics


Oh the finest ship that you ever could find
Oh boys, are you done, are you done?
Is the old "Wild Cat" of the Swallow Tail Line!
Clear away the track, boys, and let her run!

Oh Liza Lee if you were mine
Oh boys, are you done, are you done?
I would dress you up in silk so fine
Clear away the track, boys, and let her run!
For the sun is high and the wind blows free
Oh boys, are you done, are you done?
With Liza Lee all on my knee
Clear away the track, boys, and let her run!

Oh in Liverpool town the girls hang around
Oh boys, are you done, are you done?
And it's there my Liza will be found
Clear away the track, boys, and let her run!

When I come home from across the sea
Oh boys, are you done, are you done?
Liza Lee will you marry me?
Clear away the track, boys, and let her run!

For the sun is high and the wind blows free
Oh boys, are you done, are you done?
With Liza Lee all on my knee
Clear away the track, boys, and let her run!
Clear away the track, boys, and let her run!

Ohoh, let her run!

Well the prettiest sight that you ever did see
Oh boys, are you done, are you done?
Is Liz Lee all on my knee
Clear away the track, boys, and let her run!

I'll stay with you upon the shore
Oh boys, are you done, are you done?
And it's back to see I'll go no more
Clear away the track, boys, and let her run!

For the sun is high and the wind blows free
Oh boys, are you done, are you done?
With Liza Lee all on my knee
Clear away the track, boys, and let her run!
Clear away the track, boys, and let her run!

Clear away the track, boys, and let her run!

You guys are, and will always be, one of my fave bands ever! I don't know of another band that puts me in quite the mood you guys do! Bellowhead, I salute you!

Such an imaginative version of Eliza Lee I’m absolutely enamoured

"Let Her Run" is a traditional African American variation of Eliza Lee, used as a work song by stokers.

Excellent stuff.  And Bellowhead must be amongst the fittest band around: just see how quick Rachael and Paul do a lightning sit-down-stand-up at around 2.22 :-)

My Shelfish Life

I will forever regret that I only discovered you guys earlier this year and never got to see you live
