Leave Her Johnny
Various Artists Lyrics


I thought I heard the Old Man say
"Leave her, Johnny, leave her."
Tomorrow ye will get your pay
and its time for us to leave her

Leave her, Johnny, leave her!
Oh, leave her, Johnny, leave her!
For the voyage is long and the winds don't blow
And it's time for us to leave her
Oh, the wind was foul and the sea ran high
Leave her, Johnny, leave her!
She shipped it green and none went by
And it's time for us to leave her
Leave her, Johnny, leave her!
Oh, leave her, Johnny, leave her!
For the voyage is long and the winds don't blow
And it's time for us to leave her
I hate to sail on this rotten tub
"Leave her, Johnny, leave her!"
No grog allowed and rotten grub
And it's time for us to leave her
Leave her, Johnny, leave her!
Oh, leave her, Johnny, leave her!
For the voyage is long and the winds don't blow
And it's time for us to leave her
We swear by rote for want of more
"Leave her, Johnny, leave her!"
But now were through so we'll go on shore
And it's time for us to leave her
Leave her, Johnny, leave her!
Oh, leave her, Johnny, leave her!
For the voyage is long and the winds don't blow
And it's time for us to leave her

@ElGodt
Looking it up now, I’ll be back

Oh my god...you are correct.
Part of me really wants to imagine in the final minutes, that everyone was put into a voice call with a group of devs that started singing Leave her Johnny, Leave her and everyone and I mean EVERYONE pitched in.
Just think at the high note of this video, thousands of people
“Leave her Johnny, Leave her. Oh leave her Johnny, leave her. For the voyage is done and the winds don’t blow. And it’s time, for us, to leave her~”
And then the cutscene starts
I know it’s pretty much impossible but maybe there’s different VCs for different languages? Either way it’s a nice fantasy

I wish our boy Johhny Depp heard this shanty before she screwed up his life. I miss the Black Flag days...

@Karant 05 the black flag is referring to the black flag that pirates used to hoist

@Ben i don't think you actually know what that word means. see, it would be victim blaming if I said he deserved whatever it was she did to him. I'm saying he's a grown-ass man and responsible for his own actions.
