I ran away from padstow town
And shipped aboard a whaler
Way haul away, We'll haul away Joe
Because the girl i courted there
Would only have a sailor
Way haul away, we'll haul away Joe

Oh give to me a Cornishman
To ate a tatty pasty
And if it's inside "most cold beef"
He'll never think it nasty

Away haul away
We'll haul away together
Way haul away
We'll haul for better weather

King Louis was the king of France
before the revolution
He went and got his head chopped off
Which spoiled his constitution
