Well, the Shenandoah was a good ship, mates
From Dublin town she came
And the captain being an Irishman
And Murphy was his name
'Twas on the 17th of March
We lay in Mobile Bay
And the captain being an Irishman
Did celebrate the day
The crew, all being union men
Who came from Dublin town
And the flag they flew from the masthead
Was the harp without the crown

Hurrah, hurrah
For the girls of Dublin town
Hurrah for the bonnie green flag
And the harp without the crown

Now we're finished loading
And homeward we will sail
May the lord above protect us
From many a wintry gale
We send aloft the canvas, boys
And work without a frown
And from the mast of the Shenandoah
Was the harp without the crown

Hurrah, hurrah
For the girls of Dublin town
Hurrah for the bonnie green flag
And the harp without the crown

Now we're in the Channel, boys
There's lovely things to see
Those highland hills and lowland dales
They look so good to me
And now we're off the Bailey Light
The ship is seen from town
The girls all shout, "Here's the Shenandoah
And the harp without the crown."

Hurrah, hurrah
For the girls of Dublin town
Hurrah for the bonnie green flag
And the harp without the crown

And now that we are landed
And safe on Dublin's shore
We'll say goodbye to the Shenandoah
And go to sea no more
We'll drink strong ale and porter
And pass the jug around
And say goodbye to the Shenandoah
And the harp without the crown
The harp without the crown
The harp without the crown
The harp without the crown

Hurrah, hurrah
For the girls of Dublin town
Hurrah for the bonnie green flag
And the harp without the crown
Hurrah, hurrah
For the girls of Dublin town
Hurrah for the bonnie green flag
And the harp without the crown
Hurrah, hurrah
For the girls of Dublin town
Hurrah for the bonnie green flag
And the harp without the crown
