Cape Cod Shanty
Canadian Eastern Seaboard Folksong Lyrics


This song is available on Mr. I and Gary Q's In Canada.

Cape cod boys they have no sleds 
Heave away, heave away,
They slide down hills on cod fish heads, 
We are bound for Australia

Chorus; heave away my bully, bully boys, 
heave away, heave away
Heave away and don‘t you make a noise, 
we are bound for Australia

Cape cod girls they have no combs 
Heave away, heave away,
They comb their hair with cod fish bones, -
We are bound for Australia

Chorus

Cape cod men they have no sails – heave away, heave away
They sail their boats with cod fish tails –
We are bound for Australia

Chorus

Cape cod women don’t make apple pies – heave away, heave away
They fill their pies with cod fish eyes –
We are bound for Australia

Chorus

Cape cod babies they have no pins – heave away, heave away
They pin their diapers with codfish fins –
We are bound for Australia

Chorus 
(Three times, quieter and quieter, last one is loud! )
