Sally Brown

I shipped on board of a Liverpool liner
Way, hay, roll and go
And we rolled all night and we rolled till day
To spend my money along with Sally Brown

Sally Brown is a nice young lady…
Way, hay, roll and go
And we rolled all night and we rolled till day
To spend my money along with Sally Brown

Her mother doesn’t like her tarry sailor…
Way, hay, roll and go
And we rolled all night and we rolled till day
To spend my money along with Sally Brown

She wants her to marry a one-legged captain…
Way, hay, roll and go
And we rolled all night and we rolled till day
To spend my money along with Sally Brown

I shipped on board of a Liverpool liner…
Way, hay, roll and go
And we rolled all night and we rolled till day
To spend my money along with Sally Brown
