Haul Away Henry Hudson
Song for Teaching About Explorer Henry Hudson
Skip West


1609 for the Northwest passage came he
Haul away Henry Hudson
His ship named the Hopewell, a poor ship was she
Far across the bounding main
Across the bounding main
Across the bounding main
Across the Atlantic ocean came he
Far across the bounding main

They explored for the Muscovy company
Haul away Henry Hudson
But icebergs and whales were all they could see
Far across the bounding main
Across the bounding main
Across the bounding main
He helped found a new whaling industry
Far across the bounding main

They were searching for China or Japan
Haul away Henry Hudson
To sail the north seas was his plan
Far across the bounding main
Across the bounding main
Across the bounding main
The ice forced them back to England again
Far across the bounding main

On the second voyage towards Russia they sailed
Haul away Henry Hudson
But the crew was rebelling from cold, ice and hail
Far across the bounding main
Across the bounding main
Across the bounding main
He had to turn back, he knew he had failed
Far across the bounding main

The Dutch East India Company
Haul away Henry Hudson
Sponsored his third voyage across the sea
Far across the bounding main
Across the bounding main
Across the bounding main
In a ship named the Half Moon the crossing made he
Far across the bounding main

The cold weather came and he sailed to the south
Haul away Henry Hudson
Sailing up the river’s mouth
Far across the bounding main
Across the bounding main
Across the bounding main
They met with the natives again and again
Far across the bounding main
