Song 335: "Clear Away the Track"

Oh The sweetest packet ye can find                         
Ah Hey Ah Ho! Are you most done
Is the Old Wildcat of the Swallowtail Line
So clear away the track and let the bulgine run

To me Hey Rig-a-jig, in a jaunting car 
Ah Hey Ah Ho Are you most done
With Eliza Lee all on my knee 
So clear away the track and let the bulgine run


O the Old Wildcat of the Swallowtail Line
She's never a day behind her time

O we're outward bound for New York Town
Them bowery gals we'll waltz around

Oh the girls are walking on the pier!
Let's go on ashore and drink lots'a beer

O them bowery gals will give us fun
Chatham Street dives is home from home

When we've stowed our freight at the West Street Pier
It's home to Liverpool then we'll steer

When we all gets back to Liverpool town  
I'll stand ye whiskies all around

O heave a pawl, O bear a hand
Just one more pull and make her stand

O when I gets home across the sea
Eliza will you marry me
