Leave Her Johnny, Leave Her

Oh I thought I heard the old man say

Leave her Johnny leave her

It’s a long hard pull to the next pay day

and it’s time for us to leave her

Leave her Johnny leave her O-h leave her Johnny leave her

It’s a long hard pull to the next pay day and it’s time for us to leave her

The skipper was bad but the mate was worse

He’d blow you down with a spike and a curse

Oh it’s rotten meat and weevily bread

It’s pump or drown the old man said

Oh what will us poor shellbacks do

When the money’s gone no work to do

Oh it’s one more pull and that will do

For we’re the lads to kick her through

Oh I thought I heard the old man say

It’s a long hard pull to the next pay day
