Roger Mcguinn – Heave Away lyrics

Verse 1:
Come get your duds in order cause we're bound across the water,
Heave away, me jollies, heave away.
Come get your duds in order cause we're bound to leave tomorrow,
Heave away me jolly boys, we're all bound away.
Chorus:
Sometimes we're bound for Liverpool, sometimes we're bound for Spain,
Heave away, me jollies, heave away.
But now we're bound for Ole St. John's where all the girls are dancing,
Heave away me jolly boys, we're all bound away.
Verse 2:
I wrote me love a letter, I was on the Jenny Lynn,
Heave away, me jollies, heave away
I wrote me love a letter and I signed it with a ring,
Heave away me jolly boys, we're all bound away.
Chorus:
Sometimes we're bound for Liverpool, sometimes we're bound for Spain,
Heave away, me jollies, heave away.
But now we're bound for Ole St. John's where all the girls are dancing,
Heave away me jolly boys, we're all bound away.
Verse 3:
So it's farewell, Nancy darling, cause it's now I'm going to leave ya,
Heave away, me jollies, heave away.
You promised that you'd marry me, but how you did deceive me,
Heave away me jolly boys, we're all bound away.
Chorus:
Sometimes we're bound for Liverpool, sometimes we're bound for Spain,
Heave away, me jollies, heave away.
But now we're bound for Ole St. John's where all the girls are dancing,
Heave away me jolly boys, we're all bound away.
Chorus:
Sometimes we're bound for Liverpool, sometimes we're bound for Spain,
Heave away, me jollies, heave away.
But now we're bound for Ole St. John's where all the girls are dancing,
Heave away me jolly boys, we're all bound away.
Chorus:
Sometimes we're bound for Liverpool, sometimes we're bound for Spain,
Heave away, me jollies, heave away.
But now we're bound for Ole St. John's where all the girls are dancing,
Heave away me jolly boys, we're all bound away.
Heave away me jolly boys, we're all bound away.
Heave away me jolly boys, we're all bound away.
