Round the Corner, Sally

Traditional (Collected by Stan Hugill)
Arr./New words and music: Tom Lewis
(Recorded by Tom Lewis on Poles Apart)

We're - leaving sunny Mexico,
Round The Corner, Sally!
Around Cape Horn we're bound to go,
Round The Corner, Sally!

Round The Corner is a long, long way,
To Valipo and Callao Bay,
Round The Corner we must roam,
We don't care if we never go home.

Was you ever off Cape Horn,
Where your ass is never warm?

There's ice and snow and sleet and rain,
You'll meet them coming back again.

When we reach those Pacific seas,
We'll drop in to Madam Gashee's.

Them Spanish gals will make you smile,
You'll want to stay for a long, long while.

It's up aloft this yard must go,
Cuz Mr. Mate has told us so.
