Leave her Johnny - Lyrics

I thought I heard the Old Man say
"Leave her, Johnny, leave her."
Tomorrow ye will get your pay
and its time for us to leave her

Leave her, Johnny, leave her!
Oh, leave her, Johnny, leave her!
For the voyage is long and the winds don't blow
And it's time for us to leave her
Oh, the wind was foul and the sea ran high
Leave her, Johnny, leave her!
She shipped it green and none went by
And it's time for us to leave her
Leave her, Johnny, leave her!
Oh, leave her, Johnny, leave her!
For the voyage is long and the winds don't blow
And it's time for us to leave her
I hate to sail on this rotten tub
"Leave her, Johnny, leave her!"
No grog allowed and rotten grub
And it's time for us to leave her
Leave her, Johnny, leave her!
Oh, leave her, Johnny, leave her!
For the voyage is long and the winds don't blow
And it's time for us to leave her
We swear by rote for want of more
"Leave her, Johnny, leave her!"
But now were through so we'll go on shore
And it's time for us to leave her
Leave her, Johnny, leave her!
Oh, leave her, Johnny, leave her!
For the voyage is long and the winds don't blow
And it's time for us to leave her
