(Bound for the) Rio Grande

Oh, say, wuz ye ever down Rio Grande?
[Refrain]‘Way for Rio!

It’s there that the river flows down golden sands!
[Refrain] An’ we’re bound for the Rio Grande,

[Chorus]

Then away, bullies, away!
Away for Rio!
Sing fare-ye-well, me Liverpool gels,
An’ we’re bound for the Rio Grande!

So heave up the anchor, let’s get it aweigh,
It’s got a good grip, so heave, bullies, ‘way-ay!

 

[Chorus]

Oh, where are yiz bound to, my bully boys all?
An’ where are yiz bound for to make yer landfall?

 

[Chorus]

We’re bound to the south’ard, me bully boys all,
Bound out to the Brazils, me bully boys all.

 

[Chorus]

An’ what’ll ye do there, me bully boys all?
What job will ye do there, me bully boys all?

 

[Chorus]

We’ll dig for red gold, oh, me bully boys all,
We’ll dig for a fortune, me bully boys all.

 

[Chorus]

Or die o’ the fever, me bully boys all,
Or die o’ the fever, me bully boys all.

 

[Chorus]

Heave with a will boys, oh, heave long an’ strong,
Sing a good chorus, for ’tis a good song.
