Sacramento

Lyrics

(Sea shanty, 1850)

1. A bully ship and a bully crew
With a hooda and a hooda
A bullymate and a captain too
Hooda hooda ay.

Refrain
Then blow ye winds hi oh for Californy-o
There’s plenty of gold so I’ve been told
On the banks of the Sacramento.

2. Around Cape Horn in the month of snow,
With a hooda and a hooday
We came to the land where the riches flow.
Hooda hooda ay. Refrain
