Sugar in the Hold
The Longest Johns Lyrics


Well, I wish I was in Mobile Bay,
Screwing cotton all the day.
But I′m stowing sugar in the hold below,
Below, below, below.
(HUH.)

Hey, ho, below, below
Stowing sugar in the hold below
Hey, ho, below, below
Stowing sugar in the hold below

Well the J.M. White, she's a brand new boat,
Stern to stem she′s mighty fine.
'Can beat any boat on the New Orleans line,
Stowing sugar in the hold below.
(HUH.)

Hey, ho, below, below
Stowing sugar in the hold below
Hey, ho, below, below
Stowing sugar in the hold below

Well the engineer shouts through his trumpet:
"Tell the mate we got bad news:
Can't get no steam for the fire in the flue,"
Stowing sugar in the hold below.
(HUH.)

Hey, ho, below, below
Stowing sugar in the hold below
Hey, ho, below, below
Stowing sugar in the hold below

Well the captain′s on the quarter deck,
Scratchin′ 'way at his old neck.
He shouts out: "Heave the larboard lead!"
Stowing sugar in the hold below.
(HUH.)

Hey, ho, below, below
Stowing sugar in the hold below
Hey, ho, below, below
Stowing sugar in the hold below

Hey, ho, below, below
Stowing sugar in the hold below
Hey, ho, below, below
Stowing sugar in the hold below
