lyrics

Though only 'round the headland sail
3 DAYS AWAY (x2)
My bonnie girl will (be)'gin to wail
3 DAYS AWAY (x2)
The growth will grow, the rain will hail
3 DAYS AWAY (x2)
But i'll reach port on starward sail
3 DAYS & ARRIVE IN THE MORNING

Haul ashore at break of day
3 DAYS AWAY (x2)
Haul the oars and hear me say
3 DAYS & ARRIVE IN THE MORNING

My bonnie girl she wrote to me
3 DAYS AWAY (x2)
The script it blew into the sea
3 DAYS AWAY (x2)
Our guts will bloat, our backs might break
3 DAYS AWAY (x2)
Tell her i'll be the odd year late
3 DAYS & ARRIVE IN THE MORNING

So haul the oars to Belfast town
3 DAYS AWAY (x2)
Haul the oars and hear me say
3 DAYS AWAY IN THE MORNING

And Haul the oars to Annie's court
3 DAYS AWAY (x2)
Draw a line between two ports
3 DAYS & ARRIVE IN THE MORNING

Though only 'round the headland sail
Three Days Away in the the morning
