lyrics

In South Australia I was born,
Heave away, haul away.
South Australia round Cape Horn,
Bound for South Australia.

CHORUS: Heave away you ruler kings,
Heave away, haul away
Heave away, you'll hear me sing,
Bound for South Australia.

There's one thing there that grieves my mind,
Heave away, haul away,
That's leaving Nancy Blair behind,
Bound for South Australia.

[CHORUS]

I'll tell the truth and tell no lie,
Heave away, haul away
I'll love that girl 'til the day I die,
Bound for South Australia.

[CHORUS]

As I was walloping around Cape Horn,
Heave away, haul away,
I wished to God I'd never been born,
Bound for South Australia.

[CHORUS]

And now I'm on a foreign strand,
Heave away, haul away,
With a bottle of whiskey in my hand,
Bound for South Australia.

[CHORUS]

I'll drink one glass to the foreign shore,
Heave away, haul away.
And another to the girl I adore,
Bound for South Australia.

[CHORUS]

So fare thee well and fare thee well,
Heave away, haul away,
And sweet news to my girl I'll tell,
Bound for South Australia.

[CHORUS]
