Annabel Lyrics


Ye Banished Privateers Annabel




I met a lad from Donegal
Heave away, haul away
I got pregnant by the fall
Got hauled away to Georgia

I got jailed for all my sins
Heave away, haul away
Had me branded on my skin
When hauled away to Georgia

My name was Annabel I say
My name was Annabel
But now I´m resting in the ground
In a grave in Georgia

I´ve been drinking far too much
Heave away, haul away
Banker´s got me in his clutch
Hauled away to Georgia

Whisky´s not my only vice
Heave away, haul away
Lost my farm on card and dice
Got hauled away to Georgia

My name was Annabel I say
My name was Annabel
But now I´m resting in the ground
In a grave in Georgia

Her name was Annabel I say
Her name was Annabel
But now she's resting in the ground
In a grave in Georgia

Brick for brick and stone for stone
Heave away, haul away
Building George a brand new home
Haul away to Georgia

Picking cotton for his vest
Heave away, haul away
When indebted there´s no rest
Haul away to Georgia

My name was Annabel I say
My name was Annabel
But now I´m resting in the ground
In a grave in Georgia

Her name was Annabel I say
Her name was Annabel
But now she's resting in the ground
In a grave in Georgia

Ambushed by the yemassee
Heave away, haul away
Pinned an arrow to my knee
When hauled away to Georgia

Doctor came into my tent
Heave away, haul away
Took me leg and off he went
Haul away to Georgia

My name was Annabel I say
My name was Annabel
But now I´m resting in the ground
In a grave in Georgia

Her name was Annabel I say
Her name was Annabel
But now she's resting in the ground
In a grave in Georgia

Fever´s gotten to my head
Heave away, haul away
The Devil´s sleeping in my bed
Haul away to Georgia

The be no drinking when I´m gone
Heave away, haul away
Oglethorpe, he snatched our rum
Haul away to Georgia

My name was Annabel I say
Her name was Annabel
But now I´m resting in the ground
In a grave in Georgia

Her name was Annabel I say
Her name was Annabel

But now I'm resting in the ground
In a grave in Georgia
