Away, Rio!

The anchor is weighed and the sails they are set,
Away, Rio!
The maids we are leaving we'll never forget
For we're bound for the Rio Grande

And it's away Rio! Away Rio!
So fare the well, my pretty young girl
And we're bound for the Rio Grande

So it's pack up your donkey and get under way,
The girls we are leaving can take our half pay.

We've a jolly good ship and a jolly good crew,
A jolly good mate and a good skipper, too.

We'll sing as we heave to the maidens we leave,
And you who are listening, goodbye to you.

Sing good bye to Nellie and good bye to Sue
And you who are listening, good bye to you

And good-bye, fare you well, all you ladies of town
We've left you enough for to buy a silk gown

Now you Bowery ladies we'd have you to know
We're bound to the south'ard, O Lord, let us go!

Heave with a will and heave long and strong,
Sing the good chorus, for 'tis a good song.

We'll sell our salt cod for molasses and rum
And get home again 'fore Thanksgiving has come

The chain's up and down, now the bosun did say,
Heave up to the hawsepipe, the anchor's aweigh.
