South Australia

Traditional

In South Australia I was born,
Heave away! Haul away!
South Australia, ’round Cape Horn.
Bound for South Australia!

Haul away, you rollin’ king…
Timmy, heave away! Timmy 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!
It’s there I met Miss Nancy Blair.
Bound for South Australia!

Haul away, you rollin’ king…
Timmy, heave away! Timmy haul away!
Haul away, you’ll hear me sing,
We’re bound for South Australia!

I rollicked her up, and I rollicked her down,
Heave away! Haul away!
I rollicked her ’round Olde London Towne!
Bound for South Australia!

Haul away, you rollin’ king…
Timmy, heave away! Timmy haul away!
Haul away, you’ll hear me sing,
We’re bound for South Australia!

The only thing that grieves me mind,
Heave away! Haul away!
Is leavin’ Nancy Blairs’ behind!
Bound for South Australia!

Haul away, you rollin’ king…
Timmy, heave away! Timmy haul away!
Haul away, you’ll hear me sing,
We’re bound for South Australia!

If you ever go wallupin’ ’round Cape Horn,
Heave away! Haul away!
You’ll wish to Christ you’d never been born!
Bound for South Australia!

Haul away, you rollin’ king…
Timmy, heave away! Timmy haul away!
Haul away, you’ll hear me sing,
We’re bound for South Australia!
