Haul on the Bowline


Lyrics from Iron Men & Wooden Ships, by Frank Shay

Haul on the bowlin', the fore and maintop bowlin',
Haul on the bowlin', the bowlin' haul!

Haul on the bowlin', the packet is a-rollin',
Haul on the bowlin', the bowlin' haul!

Haul on the bowlin', the skipper he's a-growlin',
Haul on the bowlin', the bowlin' haul!

Haul on the bowlin', to London we are goin',
Haul on the bowlin', the bowlin' haul!

Haul on the bowlin', the good ship is a-bowlin',
Haul on the bowlin', the bowlin' haul!

Haul on the bowlin', the main-topgallant bowlin',
Haul on the bowlin', the bowlin' haul!
