Hilo, Johnny Brown Sally, she'm the gal that I love dearly 'Way, sing Sally! Sally, she'm the gal that I love dearly Hilo, Johnny Brown, stand to yer ground! Sally she'm the gal that I spliced nearly, Her lips is red an' her hair is curly, Sally she'm a Badian beauty, Sally-gal she'm know her dooty. Sally she'm a bright mulatter, Pretty gal but Ah cain't git at her [or She drinks rum an'chaws terbacker]. Seven long years Ah courted Sally, But Ah doan care ter dilly-dally. Stand to yer ground an' we'll walk her up, boys, Stand to yer ground an'we'll make a bit o'noise. Never mind the weather, boys, keep yer legs tergether, Haul away, me bully boys, an' bust the chafin'leather The mate he goes aroun', boys, dinging an' a-dangin', Fair land o' Canaan soon be a-showin'. From Shanties from the Seven Seas, Hugill RG
