Bound for South Australia

Lyrics

(Australian folk song)

In South Australia I was born,
Heave away, haul away,
South Australia ’round Cape Horn,
We’re bound for South Australia.

Refrain
Heave away, you rolling king
Heave away, haul away
Heave away, oh hear me sing
We’re bound for South Australia

There ain’t but one thing grieves my mind
Heave away, haul away
To leave Miss Nancy Blair behind
We’re bound for South Australia Refrain

Oh when I sailed across the sea
Heave away, haul away
My girl said she’d be true to me
We’re bound for South Australia Refrain
