about

Yes, dearest, you may go and look at the water. But don't lean too far over the side...

lyrics

Heave ho, Glashtyn go
tug the ferry to and fro
heave ho
Glashtyn go
down to the river below

Heave ho, Glashtyn go
tug the ferry to and fro
heave ho
Glashtyn go
down to the river below

Gack and forth in the barleybroom
To and fro we haul away
Glashtyn revel in the silken gloom
To and fro we haul away
“Lads this tea will never do.”
Haul away, haul away
Tears to turn these waters blue
Glashtyn haul away

Heave ho, Glashtyn go
tug the ferry to and fro
Heave ho, Glashtyn go
down in the river below

Gain adventure, give a little grief
To and fro we haul away
Dark cool waters our toil and relief
To and fro we haul away
Send your smiling shadow down
Haul away, haul away
to call the dance in Glashtyn town
Glashtyn haul away

When the tithe came callin’, where were you?
When the tithe comes callin’, there is nothing you can do.
Haul away haul away haul away
Haul away haul away haul away

Heave ho Glashtyn go
tug the ferry to and fro
Heave ho, you must go
down to the river below

Heave ho, Glashtyn go
tug the ferry to and fro
Heave ho, you must go
down to the river below

Law of trade and sacred trust
Haul away, haul away
Wings all bound so none can cross
Haul away, haul away
Never more than one or two
Haul away, haul away
Glashtyn do as we must do
Glashtyn haul away

Heave ho, Glashtyn go
tug the ferry to and fro
Heave ho, a child must go
down to the river below

Heave ho, Glashtyn go
tug the ferry to and fro
Heave ho, a child must go
down to the river below

Haul away, haul away, haul away!
Haul away, haul away, haul away!
Haul away, haul away, haul away!
Haul away, haul away, haul away!
