Were All Bound To Go

	Oh, as I walked down the Landing Stage
	All on a summer's morn,
	Heave away, my Johnnies, heave away!
	It's there I spied an Irish girl
	A-looking all forlorn,
	And away, my Johnnie boys,
	We're all bound to go!

	"Oh, good morning, Mr. Tapscott,"
	"Good morning, my girl," said he.
	Heave away, my Johnnies, heave away!
	"Have you got a packet ship
	to carry my across the sea?"
	And away, my Johnnie boys,
	We're all bound to go!

	"Oh, yes I have a clipper ship,
	She's called the Henry Clay";
	Heave away, my Johnnies, heave away!
	"She sails away at break of day,
	She sails to-day for Boston Bay."
	And away, my Johnnie boys,
	We're all bound to go!

	"Oh, will you take me to Boston Bay
	When she sails away at break of day?"
	Heave away, my Johnnies, heave away!
	"I want to marry a Yankee boy,
	And I'll cross the sea no more."
	And away, my Johnnie boys,
	We're all bound to go!
