Blow Boys Blow


(Sea shanty)

1. A yankee ship came down the river,
Blow, blow, blow,
Her masts and spars they shone like silver,
Blow, my bully boys, blow.

2. Who do you think is the captain of her?
Blow boys blow.
Why, Billy Hayes is the captain of her,
Blow, my bully boys, blow.

3. And what do you think they’ve got for dinner…
Pickled eel’s feet and bullock’s liver…

4. And how do you know she’s a Yankee liner?…
The Stars and Stripes float out behind her…
