Is evening come? - Heave away - haul away
The setting sun - Draws veil upon the day
My time is done - Heave away - haul away
My tide has run - Haul away my day

No hardship great to bear - For were this never there
All rogues and cowards would so unfit the sea
Then men of courage starve - This I could never have
Now help my child to stand up tall and think of me

When I was young - Heave away - haul away
Raised as her son - And lived a lie each day
Away I ran - Heave away - haul away
Became a man - Haul away my day

No hardship great to bear - For were this never there
All rogues and cowards would so unfit the sea
Then men of courage starve - This I could never have
Now help my child to stand up tall and think of me

Of love I learned - Heave away - haul away
Loved in return - yet always lost my way
So long I fought - Heave away - haul away
All come to nought - Haul away my day

No hardship great to bear - For were this never there
All rogues and cowards would so unfit the sea
Then men of courage starve - This I could never have
Now help my child to stand up tall and think of me

Is evening come? - Heave away - haul away
The setting sun - Draws veil upon the day
My time is done - Heave away - haul away
My tide has run – now - Haul away my day
