South Australia
by Tommy Makem

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

Haul away, you rolling king,
Heave away! Haul away!
Haul away and hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia!

As I walked out one morning fair,
Heave away! Haul away!
'Twas there I met Miss Nancy Blair.
We're bound for South Australia!

Haul away, you rolling king,
Heave away! Haul away!
Haul away and hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia!

I sher up, I sher down,
Heave away! Haul away!
I sher round and round the town.
We're bound for South Australia!

Haul away, you rolling king,
Heave away! Haul away!
Haul away and hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia!

There ain't but one thing grieves my mind,
Heave away! Haul away!
To leave Miss Nancy Blair behind.
We're bound for South Australia!

Haul away, you rolling king,
Heave away! Haul away!
Haul away and hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia!

And as you lollop round Cape Horn,
Heave away! Haul away!
You'll wish to Christ you'd never been born!
We're bound for South Australia!

Haul away, you rolling king,
Heave away! Haul away!
Haul away and hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia!
