LYRICS:
1. When I was just a little lad or so me mammy told me,
Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.
That if I didn't kiss the girls me lips would grow a-moldy.
Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

Chorus:
Away Ho! haul away! we'll haul away together!
Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.
Away Ho! haul away! we'll haul for better weather.
Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

2. I used to have an Irish girl, but she got fat and lazy
Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.
But now I've got a Bristol girl, and she just drives me crazy
Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

Chorus

3. Old Louis was the king of France before the revolution.
Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.
But then he got his head chopped off an' it spoiled his constitution.
Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

Chorus

4. You call yourself a second mate, you cannae tie a bowline,
Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.
You can't even stand up straight, when the packet she's a rollin'
Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

Chorus

5. Well now can't you see the black clouds a-gatherin'.
Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.
Well now can't you see the storm clouds a-risin'.
Away haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

Chorus
