South Australia (Traditional)

In South Australia I was born

To me heave away, haul away

In South Australia round Cape Horn

We’re bound for South Australia

Chorus

Haul away nowyou rolling kings

To me heave away, haul away

Haul away, you’ll hear me sing

We’re bound for South Australia

2. As I walked out one day so fair

To me heave away, haul away

‘Twas there I met Miss Nancy Blair

We’re bound for South Australia

Chorus

3. I rocked her up, I rocked her down

To me heave away, haul away

I rocked her all around the town.

We’re bound for South Australia

Chorus

4. I run her all night and I run her all day

To me heave away, haul away

And I run her until we sailed away

We’re bound for South Australia

Chorus

5. There ain’t but one thing grieves me mind

To me heave away, haul away

To leave Miss Nancy Blair behind

We’re bound for South Australia

Chorus

8. I wish I was on Australia’s strand

To me heave away, haul away

With a bottle of whiskey in my hand

We’re bound for South Australia

Chorus
