One More Day

Lyrics

(Folk song)

Have you heard the news, my Johnny
One more day!
We’re homeward bound tomorrow
Only one more day!

Refrain
One more day, me Johnny,
One more day!
Oh rock and row me over,
One more day!

Don’t you hear the old man growlin’
One more day!
Don’t you hear the mate a howlin’
Only one more day!  Refrain

Don’t you hear the old man callin’
One more day!
Don’t you hear the pilot bawlin’
Only one more day!  Refrain

Only one more day a-rollin’
One more day!
Can’t you hear the gulls a-callin’
Only one more day!  Refrain

Heave and sight the anchor, Johnny
One more day!
For we’re close ‘board the port, Johnny
Only one more day!  Refrain

Put on your long-tail blue, Johnny
One more day!
For your payday’s nearly due.
Only one more day!  Refrain

We’re homeward bound today, Johnny
One more day!
We’ll leave her without sorrow, Johnny
Only one more day!  Refrain

No more gales or heavy weather
One more day!
Only one more day together
Only one more day!  Refrain

Only one more day, my Johnny,
One more day!
O, rock and roll me over.
Only one more day!  Refrain
