C F C
In South Australia, I was born,

F C F C
Heave away, haul away,

G Am
In South Australia ' round Cape Horn,

C G7 C
We're bound for South Aust ral ia.

Chorus

F C
Haul away your rolling king,

F C F C
Heave away, haul away,

Am
Haul away, oh hear me sing,

C G7 C
We're bound for South Austr ali a.

As I walked out one morning fair, etc.
'Twas there I met Miss Nancy Blair, etc.


I shook her up, I shook her down
I shook her round and round the town.


There ain't but one thing grieves my mind,
To leave Miss Nancy Blair behind.


And as we wallop around Cape Horn,
You'll wish to God you'd never been born.
john
