SAILOR SHANTIES

Blow my bully boys ~ Lyrics

(HALLIARD SHANTY.)

1. A Yankee ship came down the river,
Blow, boys blow.
Her masts and yards they shine like silver.
Blow my bully boys blow.]

2. And how d'ye know she's a Yankee packet?
The Stars and Stripes they fly above her.

3. And who d'ye think was skipper of her. (twice)

4. 'Twas Dandy Jim, the one-eyed nigger;
'Twas Dandy Jim, with his bully figure.

5. And what d'ye think they had for dinner?
Why bullock's lights and donkey's liver.

6. And what d'ye think they had for supper?
Why weevilled bread and Yankee leather.

7. Then blow my boys, and blow together.
And blow my boys for better weather.

8. A Yankee ship came down the river.
Her masts and yards they shine like silver.
