Sea Shanties - the best Shanty Lyrics of all time

There once was a ship that put to sea
And the name of that ship was the Billy o' Tea
The winds blew hard, her bow dipped down
Blow, me bully boys, blow

Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day, when the tonguing' is done
We'll take our leave and go

TikTokUnknown, Soon May the Wellerman Come

Ho! Ho! and up she rises
What shall we do with a drunken sailor
Early in the morning?
Chuck him in the long boat 'til he's sober
Shave his chin with a rusty razor
Give him a dose of salt and water
Pull out the plug and wet him all over

Unknown, Drunken Sailor

A poor old man came riding by
And we say so, and we know so
O, a poor old man Came riding by
O, poor old man

Says I, "Old man, Your horse will die"
And we say so, and we know so.
And if he dies we'll tan his hide
O, poor old man

Unknown, The Dead Horse

Now we are ready to head for the Horn
Way hey, roll and go!
Our boots and our clothes, boys, are all in the pawn
To me, rollicking randy dandy-o!

Oh, the times were hard and the wages are low,
Leave her, Johnny, leave her!
I guess it's time for us to go,
And it's time for us to leave her!

Beware these packet ships, I say!
Leave her, Johnny, leave her!
They'll steal your stores and your clothes away
And it's time for us to leave her!

Leave her, Johnny, leave her
Oh leave her, Johnny, leave her
For the voyage is done, and the winds don't blow
and it's time for us to leave her

Unknown, Leave Her Johnny
