South Australia
Traditional

In South Australia I was born!
Heave away! Haul away!
South Australia round Cape Horn!
We're bound for South Australia!

Chorus:
Haul away, you rolling king,
Heave away! Haul away!
All the way you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia!

As I walked out one morning fair,
Heave away! Haul away!
It's there I met Miss Nancy Blair.
We're bound for South Australia!

Chorus

I shook her up, I shook her down,
Heave away! Haul away!
I shook her round and round the town.
We're bound for South Australia!

Chorus

There ain't but one thing grieves my mind,
Heave away! Haul away!
It's to leave Miss Nancy Blair behind.
We're bound for South Australia!

Chorus

And as you wallop round Cape Horn,
Heave away! Haul away!
You'll wish to Christ you'd never been born!
We're bound for South Australia!

Chorus

Up the coast to Vallipo,
Heave away! Haul away!
Northward on to Callao.
We're bound for South Australia!

Chorus

It's back again to Liverpool,
Heave away! Haul away!
I spent me pay like a bloody fool!
We're bound for South Australia!

Chorus

I'm Liverpool born and Liverpool bred,
Heave away! Haul away!
Long in the arm and thick in the head.
We're bound for South Australia!

Chorus

Oh, rock and roll me over boys,
Heave away! Haul away!
Let's get this damn job over boys.
We're bound for South Australia!
