RIO GRANDE

Paroles :

Was you ever in Rio Grande?
Heave away for Rio!
It's there that the river flows down golden sand!
And we're bound for the Rio Grande!

Refrain

Then away, boys, away,
Away down Rio,
So fare thee well, my pretty young girl,
We're bound for the Rio Grande.

So it's pack up your sea-chest an' get underway,
Heave away for Rio!
The girls we are leavin' can have our half-pay.
And we're bound for the Rio Grande!

Refrain

Our ship went sailin' over the bar,
Heave away for Rio!
We've pointed her bow to the southern stars.
And we're bound for the Rio Grande!

Refrain

You Liverpool judies, we'll have you to know,
Heave away for Rio!
We're bound to the south'ard and glad for to go.
And we're bound for the Rio Grande!

Refrain

We're a Liverpool ship & a Liverpool crew,
Heave away for Rio!
You can stick to the coast but I'm damned if we do!
And we're bound for the Rio Grande!

Refrain

Goodbye to Ellen and Molly and Sue,
Heave away for Rio!
You park lane judies, it's goodbye to you.
And we're bound for the Rio Grande!
