The Boatman Dance
The boatman sing, the boatman dance
The boatman do most anything.
Never seen a pretty girl all your life
She was sure a boatman’ wife
Dance, boatman dance! Dance, boatman dance.
O dance all night till broad daylight
And go home with the gals in de morning
Went on board the other day
To see what the boatman had to say
Stand back me lads you have no chance
We call this the boatman dance
When you hear the boatmans horn
Look out out boys the ship is gone
They wheeled away of they go
Way down the river to the old Ohio
