Mobile Bay

Was you ever in Mobile Bay?
[Refrain] Johnny come tell us and pump(haul) away
A-screwing cotton by the day
[Refrain] Johnny come tell us and pump(haul) away.

[Chorus]

Aye, aye, pump away (Hauly)
Johnny come tell us and pump away
Aye, aye, pump away (Hauly)
Johnny come tell us and pump away

And how many bales can you carry on?
Just hurry up before she’s gone

[Chorus]

The times are hard and the wages low
Just one more bale before we go

 

[Chorus]

If ever good luck does come my way
I’ll say goodbye to Mobile Bay

 

[Chorus]
