South Australia
(trad. arr.)

In South Australia I was born
To me heave away, haul away
In South Australia round Cape Horn

We're bound for South Australia
Haul away you rolling kings
To me heave away, haul away
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia

2. As I walked out one morning fair
To me heave away, haul away
'Twas there I met Miss Nancy Blair

We're bound for South Australia
Haul away you rolling kings
To me heave away, haul away
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia

3. I shook her up and I shook her down
To me heave away, haul away
I shook her round and round the town

We're bound for South Australia
Haul away you rolling kings
To me heave away, haul away
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia

4. I run her all night and I run her all day
To me heave away, haul away
And I run her until we sailed away

We're bound for South Australia
Haul away you rolling kings
To me heave away, haul away
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia

5. There ain't but one thing grieves me mind
To me heave away, haul away
To leave Miss Nancy Blair behind

We're bound for South Australia
Haul away you rolling kings
To me heave away, haul away
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia

6. And as we wallop around Cape Horn
To me heave away, haul away
You'll wish to God you'd never been born

We're bound for South Australia
Haul away you rolling kings
To me heave away, haul away
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia
  

7. In South Australia my native land
To me heave away, haul away
Full of rocks and thieves and fleas and sand

We're bound for South Australia
Haul away you rolling kings
To me heave away, haul away
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia
  

8. I wish I was on Australia's strand
To me heave away, haul away
With a bottle of whiskey in my hand

We're bound for South Australia
Haul away you rolling kings
To me heave away, haul away
Haul away, you'll hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia
