Hog Eye Man

And hand me down my walkin’ cane,

I’m going to see my Sally Jane.

And a hog-eye!

Railroad nigger with his Hog-Eye,

Row the boat ashore with her Hog-Eye, Oh,

She wants the Hog-Eye man!

The hog-eye man is the man for me,

He came a sailin’ from o’er the sea

Chorus

He came to the shack where Sally did dwell

He knocked on her door, he rung her bell

Chorus

Who’s been here since I’ve been gone

A big buck navvy with his sea boots on

Chorus

If I catch him here with me Sally any more,

I’ll sling me hook and go to sea some more.

Chorus.

Sally in the garden siftin’ sand,

And the hog-eye man sittin’ hand in hand.

Chorus

Sally in the kitchen, punchin’ duff,

And the cheeks of her arse goin’ chuff, chuff, chuff

Chorus

Oh, a hog-eye ship and a hog-eye crew,

A hog-eye mate and a skipper too

Chorus
