Bound to the rio grande

O-oh say was you ever in ri-i-o grande
Heave a way for rio
I'ts there that the river runs down golden sand
And we're bound to the rio grande

Refrein: Heave away for rio heave away for rio
Sing fare you well my bonny young girls
And we're bound to the rio grande

We was sick on the beach when our money was gone
Heave away for rio
So we signed in this packet for to drive 'r along
And we're bound to the rio grande

Ther is some of us sick there is some of us sore
Heave away for rio
We've scoffed all our whack and we're looking for more
And we're bound to the rio grande

Refrein

Our anchor we'll weigh and the rags we will set
Heave away for rio
The bonny young girls we will never forget
And we're bound to the rio grande

Refrein

Oh pack up your donkeys and get underway Heave away for rio
Them judies we're leaving will get our half pay
And we're bound to the rio grande

Refrein

Cheer up mary ellen and don't look so glum
Heave away for rio
On white stocking day you'll be drinking hot rum
And we're bound to the rio grande
