To Rio Grande We're Bound Away

To Rio Grande We're Bound Away

Traditional - Lyrics from The Music of the Waters, by Laura Smith


The ship went sailing out over the bar,
O Rio! O Rio!
They pointed her nose for the Southron Star,
And we're bound for the Rio Grande.

Then away, love, away,
Away down Rio;
Then fare you well, my pretty young girl,
We're bound for the Rio Grande.
