Music Passion — a capella

Sarah Potter Writes

My rather belated contribution to August’s Music Passion for a capella (songs without musical accompaniment), is a 19th century “tack and sheet” sea shanty called Haul AwayJoe. To find out more about adollyciousirony’s monthly musical extravaganza and how you can join in, please visit allaboutlemon.com .

When I was a little lad and so me mother told me,
Way haul away, we’ll haul away Joe.
That if I did not kiss the girls me lips would grow all moldy.
Way haul away, we’ll haul away Joe.

Way haul away, we’re bound for better weather.
Away haul away, we’ll haul away Joe.
Way haul away, we’ll haul away together.
Away haul away, we’ll haul away Joe.

King Louis was the king of France before the revolution.
And then he got his head chopped off. It spoiled his constitution.

Saint Patrick was a gentleman. He came from decent people.
