Retired Scouter Campfire Songs 


South Australia


In South Australia, I was born; HEAVE AWAY, HAUL AWAY.
In South Australia 'round Cape Horn. AND WE'RE BOUND FOR SOUTH
AUSTRALIA.



CHORUS:
Heave away, you ruler kings, heave away, haul away;
Haul away O hear me sing, and we're bound for South Australia.


As I went out one morning fair;
It was there I met Miss Nancy Blair.


(chorus)


She shook me up, she shook me down;
She shook me 'round and 'round the town.


(chorus)


There ain't but one thing grieves my mind;
To leave Miss Nancy Blair behind.


(chorus)


And as we wallop 'round Cape Horn;
You'd wish to God you'd never been born.


(chorus)


Now my story here is told;
We're sailing Cape bound and awful bold.


(chorus)
