Bound Away For Australia

Posted on: December 7th, 2010 by dville

Less than 24 hours to take-off and the beginning of the Play Ukulele By Ear Australian Workshop Tour.

I recently came across an old sea shanty via my friend Kate Power that expresses the international traveling sentiment perfectly. And, it’s my one of my favorite types of song, only two chords.

Cape Cod Girls

Cape Cod girls ain’t got no combs
Haul away, haul away
They brush their hair with codfish bones
And we’re bound away for Australia
Chorus
So heave away, me bully, bully boys
Haul away, haul away
Heave her up and don’t you make a noise
And we’re bound away for Australia

Cape Cod kids ain’t got no sled
Haul away, haul away
They slide down hills on codfish heads

And we’re bound away for Australia
Chorus
Cape Cod girls ain’t got no frills
They tie their hair with codfish gills

And we’re bound away for Australia
Chorus
Cape Cod cats ain’t got no tails
They lost them all in the northeast gales
And we’re bound away for Australia

Chorus



And here’s a real Australian version.
