Aweigh, Santy Ano

This song is by The Weavers and appears on the album The Weavers at Home (1958) and on the compilation Folk Songs and Minstrelsy (1962).

From Boston town we're bound away,
Heave away, Santy Ano!
Around Cape Horn to Frisco Bay,
We're bound for Califor-ni-o.

So heave her up and away we'll go,
Heave away, Santy Ano!
Heave her up and away we'll go,
We're bound for Califor-ni-o.

She's a fast clipper ship and a bully good crew,
Heave away, Santy Ano!
A downeast Yankee for her captain, too,
We're bound for Califor-ni-o.

So heave her up and away we'll go,
Heave away, Santy Ano!
Heave her up and away we'll go,
We're bound for Califor-ni-o.

Back in the days of forty-nine,
Heave away, Santy Ano!
Those were the days of the good old times,
We're bound for Califor-ni-o.

So heave her up and away we'll go,
Heave away, Santy Ano!
Heave her up and away we'll go,
We're bound for Califor-ni-o.

When I leave ship I'll settle down,
Heave away, Santy Ano!
I'll marry a girl named Sally Brown,
We're bound for Califor-ni-o.

So heave her up and away we'll go,
Heave away, Santy Ano!
Heave her up and away we'll go,
We're bound for Califor-ni-o.

There's plenty of gold, so I've been told,
Heave away, Santy Ano!
Plenty of gold, so I've been told,
Way out in Califor-ni-o.

So heave her up and away we'll go,
Heave away, Santy Ano!
Heave her up and away we'll go,
We're bound for Califor-ni-o.
