Joe Solo with Commoners Choir - Haul Away, Boys!

from by Joe Solo

supported by


Haul away, boys
Haul in the trawl, boys
Splice off the ice
Or we'll sink like a stone
Haul away, boys
Haul in the trawl, boys
Haul in the trawl
And let's head off for home

Haul away, boys
Ride the white horses
Ride the white horses
And face down the gale
And pray, boys
The engines keep churning
Just like them Ghost Ships
Once prayed for the sail


Haul away, boys
For the wives and the children
The lives that depended
On us getting home
To that town, boys
The town we were born in
The town now in mourning
For all that we've known


Haul away, boys
For six thousand men, boys
Six thousand men like us
Perished at sea
We're all caught now
Caught in this moment
Caught in this moment
For eternity
