Homeward Bound

Homeward Bound

Traditional - Lyrics from Capstan Bars, by David Bone


We're homeward bound I heard them say.
Goodbye, fare ye well! Good-bye, fare ye well!
Our orders came from home today!
Hoorah, my lads, we're homeward bound!

We're homeward bound to Liverpool town.
Goodbye, fare ye well! Good-bye, fare ye well!
We'll stamp at th' capstan an' heave it a-roun'.
Hoorah, my lads, we're homeward bound!

An' when we get t' Liverpool Bar.
Goodbye, fare ye well! Good-bye, fare ye well!
They'll be gulls there a-flockin' from near an' far.
Hoorah, my lads, we're homeward bound!

An' then we get t' th' Wallasey gates.
Goodbye, fare ye well! Good-bye, fare ye well!
There Sally and Sue for a sweet-heart waits.
Hoorah, my lads, we're homeward bound!
