Lyrics

1. We're sailing down the river from Liverpool, heave away, Santy Anno,
around Cape Horn to Frisco Bay, all on the plains of Mexico.
So heave her up and away we'll go, heave away, Santy Anno,
Heave her up and away we'll go, all on the plains of Mexico.

2. She's a fastclipper ship and a bully good crew, heave away, Santy Anno,
A downeast Yankee for her captain, too, all on the plains of Mexico.
There's plenty of gold, so I've been told, heave away, Santy Anno,
There's plenty of gold, so I've been told, 'way out in Californio.

3. Back in the days of fortynine, heave away, Santy Anno,
Those were the days of the good old times, all on the plains of Mexico.
When Zacharias Taylor gained the day, heave away, Santy Anno,
He made poor Santy run away, all on the plains of Mexico.

4. General Scott and Taylor, too, heave away, Santy Anno,
Made poor Santy meet his Waterloo, all on the plains of Mexico.
Santy Anno was a good old man, heave away, Santy Anno,
Till he got into war with your Uncle Sam, all on the plains of Mexico.

5. When I leave this ship I will settle down, heave away, Santy Anno,
And marry a girl named Sally Brown, all on the plains of Mexico.
So heave her up and away we'll go, heave away, Santy Anno,
Heave her up and away we'll go, all on the plains of Mexico.
