Blow, Bullies, Blow
(Hilliards Chanty)

There's a Black Ball barque coming down the river,
Blow, bullies, blow;
There's a Black Ball barque coming down the river,
Blow, my bully boys, blow.

And who d'ye think is Captain of her?
Blow, bullies, blow;
O who d'ye think is Captain of her?
Blow, my bully boys, blow.

Why, bully Hains is the Captain of her,
Blow, bullies, blow;
Why, bully Hains is the Captain of her,
Blow, my bully boys, blow.

He'll make you wish you were dead and buried,
Blow, bullies, blow;
He'll make you wish you was dead and buried,
Blow, my bully boys, blow.

You'll brighten brass, and you'll scrape the cable,
Blow, bullies, blow;
You'll brighten brass, and you'll scrape the cable,
Blow, my bully boys, blow.

And who d'ye think is mate aboard her?
Blow, bullies, blow;
O who d'ye think is mate aboard her?
Blow, my bully boys, blow.

Santander James is the mate aboard her?
Blow, bullies, blow;
Santander James is the mate aboard her,
Blow, my bully boys, blow.

He'll ride you down like you ride the spanker,
Blow, bullies, blow;
He'll ride you down like you ride the spanker,
Blow, my bully boys, blow.

And who d'ye think is the second mate of her?
Blow, bullies, blow;
And who d'ye think is the second mate of her?
Blow, my bully boys, blow.

Some ugly case what hates poor sailors,
Blow, bullies, blow;
Some ugly care what hates poor sailors,
Blow, my bully boys, blow.
