Away and to the westward|
Is a place a man should go
Where the fishing's always easy
They've got no ice or snow
But I'll haul down the sail
Where the bays come together
Bide away the days
On the hills of Isle au Haut.
2. Now the Plymouth girls are fine
3. Now, the trouble with old Martin|
You don't try her in a trawler
For those bay of Biscay swells
They roll your head from off your shoulder.
4. Away and to the westward
5. Now the winters drive you crazy
