Cape Cod Song

Now that the time is coming to leave I have the bittersweet feeling - of looking forward to something new, but feeling that Cape Cod has been sort of home. So on this day a song I learnt from Uma, Tara's daughter. It's an old New England folk song..

Cape Cod Girls they have no combs
They comb their hair with fish cod bones
Heave away, Heave away
Heave away my bully bully boys
Haeave away and don't you make a noise
We're bound for Australia


Cape Cod boys they have no sleds
They ride on codfish heads
Heave away, Heave away
Heave away my bully bully boys
Haeave away and don't you make a noise
We're bound for Australia



Cape Cod cats they have no tails
They blew away in the Nor'east gales
Heave away, Heave away
Heave away my bully bully boys
Haeave away and don't you make a noise
We're bound for Australia



Cape Cod doctors have no pills
They give their patients cod fish gills
Heave away, Heave away
Heave away my bully bully boys
Haeave away and don't you make a noise
We're bound for Australia
