Bound for South Australia

Bound for South Australia

In South Australia I was born
Heave away, haul away
South Australia round Cape Horn
We're bound for South Australia

Chorus

Heave away, you rolling king
Heave away, haul away
Heave away, oh hear me sing
We're bound for South Australia

There ain't but one thing grieves my mind
Heave away, haul away
To leave Miss Nancy Blair behind
We're bound for South Australia

Oh when I sailed across the sea
Heave away, haul away
My girl said she'd be true to me
We're bound for South Australia

I rung her all night I rung her all day
Heave away, haul away
I rung her before we sailed away
We're bound for South Australia

And now I'm on some foreign strand
Heave away, haul away
With a bottle of whiskey in my hand
We're bound for South Australia

And as we wallop around Cape Horn
Heave away, haul away
You wish to God you'd never been born
We're bound for Australia
