Farewell Shanty (Padstow Farewell)

It’s time to go now

Haul away your anchor

Haul away your anchor

It’s our sailing time

Get some sail upon her

Haul away your halyards

Haul away your halyards

It’s our sailing time

Get her on her course now

Haul away your foresheets

Haul away your foresheets

It’s our sailing time

Waves are surging under

Haul away down Channel

Haul away down Channel

On the evening tide

When your sailing’s over

Haul away for Heaven

Haul away for Heaven

God be by your side

It’s time to go now

Haul away your anchor

Haul away your anchor

It’s our sailing time

    After leaving the channel on the evening tide :

    Seek the far horizon

    Haul away your topsails

    Haul away your topsails

    Cross the ocean wide
