Lyrics

Leave Her, Johnny     

 

And I thought I heard the Old Man say

Leave her Johnny, leave Her

It’s a long, hard pull to the next pay day

And it’s time for us to leave her

 

CHORUS

Leave her Johnny, leave her.  

Oh, leave her Johnny, leave her

Oh, the voyage is done and the winds won’t blow

And it’s time for us to leaver her

 

Oh, the skipper was bad but the mate was worse

Leave her, Johnny, leave her

He’d blow you down with a spike and a curse

And it’s time for us to leave her

 

CHORUS

 

Oh, it’s pull you lubbers or you’ll get no pay

Leave her, Johnny, leave her

Oh, pull you lubbers and then belay

And it’s time for us to leave her

 

CHORUS

 

And I thought I heard the Old Man say

Leave her Johnny, leave Her

It’s a long, hard pull to the next pay day

And it’s time for us to leave he

 

CHORUS

Leave her Johnny, leave her.  

Oh, leave her Johnny, leave her

Oh, the voyage is done and the winds won’t blow

And it’s time for us to leaver her
