[Intro]
C

[Verse]
F CThey will take us from the moorings
F CThey will tow us down the Bay
G CThey will pluck us up to windward when we sail
F CWe will hear the keen wind whistle
F CWe will feel the sting of spray
G CWhen we've seen the deep-sea pilot o'er the rail
[Verse]
F G CThen it's Johnnie heave and start her
F G CThen it's Johnnie roll and go
F G CWhen the mates have picked the watches
G CThere is little rest for Jack
F CWe will sing the good old chorus
F CThat the Homeward Bounders know
GFor the girls have got the towrope
F C G C G C F CAnd they're hauling in the slack
[Verse]
F CThrough the dusty streets and dismal
F CThrough the noises of the town
G CYou can hear the West wind humming through the shrouds
F CAnd we'll see the lightning leaping
F CAs the tropic suns go down
G CAnd the dapple of the shadows on the clouds
[Verse]
F G CAnd the salt blood dances in us
F G CTo the tune of Homeward Bound
F G CTo the call to weary watches
G CTo the sheet and to the tack
F CWhen they bid us man the capstan
F CAll hands will walk her round
GFor the girls have got the tow-rope
F C G C G C F CAnd they're hauling in the slack
[Verse]
F CThrough the sunshine of the tropics
F CRound the bleak and dreary Horn
G CHalf across the sleepy planet lies our way
F CAnd we'll leave the land behind us
F CLike a welcome long outworn
G CWhen we see the reeling mastheads swing and sway
[Verse]
F G CThrough the weather fair and stormy
F G CThrough the calm and in the gale
F G CWe will heave and haul to help her
G CWe will keep her on her track
F CAnd we'll sing the good old chanties
F CAs all hands are making sail
GFor the girls have got the tow-rope
F CAnd they're hauling in the slack
[Outro]
G CHeave away (haul away)
G CHaul away (haul away)
G CHeave away (heave away)
G CHaul away (haul away)
