SAILOR SHANTIES

Lowlands away ~ Lyrics

(WINDLASS AND CAPSTAN SHANTY)

Lowlands, Lowlands,
Away my John,
Lowlands, away,
I heard them say,
My dollar and a half a day.

1. A dollar and a half a day is a Hoosier's pay.
Lowlands, Lowlands,
Away my John.
A dollar and a half a day is very good pay.
My dollar and a half a day.

2. Oh was you ever in Mobile Bay.
Lowlands, Lowlands,
Away my John.
Screwing the cotton by the day.
My dollar and a half a day.

3. All in the night my true love came,
Lowlands, Lowlands,
Away my John.
All in the night my true love came.
My dollar and a half a day.]

4. She came to me all in my sleep. (twice)

5. And hër eyes were white my love. (twice)

6. And then I knew my love was dead. (twice)
