Lyrics

From Ardchreag we’re bound away,
Heave aweigh (Heave aweigh!) Saint Cris.
Around Cape Boar to Dragon Bay,
We’re bound for Pennsic’s bliss.

So Heave her up and away we’ll go,
Heave aweigh (Heave aweigh!) Saint Cris.
Heave her up and away we’ll go,
We’re bound for Pennsic’s bliss.

She’s a fast frigate ship and a bully crew,
Heave aweigh (Heave aweigh!) Saint Cris.
An up-north Scot for her captain, too.
We’re bound for Pennsic’s bliss.

So Heave her up and away we’ll go,
Heave aweigh (Heave aweigh!) Saint Cris.
Heave her up and away we’ll go,
We’re bound for Pennsic’s bliss.

Back in the days of Forty AS,
Heave aweigh (Heave aweigh!) Saint Cris.
Those were the days of the good excess,
Way out in Pennsic’s bliss.

So Heave her up and away we’ll go,
Heave aweigh (Heave aweigh!) Saint Cris.
Heave her up and away we’ll go,
We’re bound for Pennsic’s bliss.

There’s plenty of gold, so I’ve been told,
Heave aweigh (Heave aweigh!) Saint Cris.
Plenty of gold so I’ve been told
Way out in Pennsic’s bliss.

So Heave her up and away we’ll go,
Heave aweigh (Heave aweigh!) Saint Cris.
Heave her up and away we’ll go,
We’re bound for Pennsic’s bliss.

When I leave ship I’ll fight for the Crown,
Heave aweigh (Heave aweigh!) Saint Cris.
For my kingdom I’ll win renown,
Way out in Pennsic’s bliss.

So Heave her up and away we’ll go,
Heave aweigh (Heave aweigh!) Saint Cris.
Heave her up and away we’ll go,
We’re bound for Pennsic’s bliss.
