General Taylor gained the day
Walk him along, John, Carry him along
General Taylor gained the day
Carry him to his burying ground
Chorus:
To me way, hey, hey Stormy
Walk him along, John, carry him along
Way, hey, hey, Stormy
Carry him to his burying ground

2. I wish I was sold Stormy's son
Walk him along, John, Carry him along
I'd build me a ship of ten thousand ton
Carry him to his burying ground
Chorus:

3. I'd load her down with ale and rum
Walk him along, John, Carry him along
And every shellback should have some
Carry him to his burying ground
Chorus:

4. We dug his grave with a silver spade
Walk him along, John, Carry him along
His shroud of the finest silk was made
Carry him to his burying ground
Chorus:

5. We lowered him down on a golden chain
Walk him along, John, Carry him along
On every link we carved his name
Carry him to his burying ground
Chorus:

6. General Taylor died long ago
Walk him along, John, Carry him along
He's gone to where the winds don't blow
Carry him to his burying ground
Chorus:

7. General Taylor's dead and gone
Walk him along, John, Carry him along
General Taylor's dead and gone
Carry him to his burying ground
Chorus:
