GUEST,Erich Lyr Add: Tom's Gone to Hilo (34) RE: Lyr Add: Tom's Gone to Hilo 08 Aug 11

This is what Alex Campbell sings on "The Shanty Men" (Greenwich Village GVR 201, 1977/78

Oh Tommy's gone what shall I do - Way down Hilo
Oh Tommy's gone and I'll go too - Tom's gone to Hilo

Aye Tommy's gone to Liverpool -
To Liverpool that packet school -

Mhm Yankee shellbacks you'll see there -
With red-top boots and short cut hair -

Oh he signed on for three pound ten -
Aye he signed on for three pound ten -

Oh Tommy's gone to Hilo town -
Where all them gals they do come down -

Oh Hilo town is in Peru -
It's just a place for me and you -

Aye Tommy's gone to Baltimore -
To dance upon the sandy shore -

Aye Tommy fought at Trafalgar -
Oh Tommy fought at Trafalgar -
