The Banks of Sacramento

Audio: .mp3

It‟s a bully ship and a bully crew
With a ho down, ho down
And we‟re the boys to put her through
With a ho down, ho down hey.

Chorus:
So blow boys blow
For Californio
There’s plenty of gold so I’ve been told,
On the banks of the Sacramento.

It‟s round that capstan we must go
With a ho down, ho down
To hoist the anchor from below
With a ho down, ho down hey.

And when we wallop around Cape Horn ….
You‟ll wish to God you‟d never been born …..

When we get „round to „Frisco town ….
My dear stay clear of Shanghai Brown ….

I thought I heard our Captain say …..
Those „Frisco girls will steal your pay ….

She would not steer, she would not stay …..
She sailed high seas both night and day ….

I thought I heard our Bosun say ….
Just one more turn and then belay ……

SEA CHANTEYS
