You will sometimes here us leading this song during the parade at the Kansas City Renaissance Festival.

Dedicated to Tim Young "We Ride!" for he loves this song. (Maybe he was the one who had to kiss all the girls.)

 Lyrics:
1) When I was a little lad, so me mother told me, (Timmy!)
     Away, haul away. We値l haul away, Joe!
     That if I di地a kiss the girls 
     My lips would all grow mouldy (Timmy!)
     Away, haul away. We値l haul away, Joe!
 
Chorus: 
Away, haul away. 
We池e bound for better weather, (Timmy!)
Away, haul away. 
We値l haul away, Joe!
 
 2) Once I knew a squire, 
     Tried to start a revolution (Timmy!)            
     Away, haul away. We値l haul away, Joe!
     Oh, then he got his head cut off, 
     It spoiled his constitution.
     Away, haul away. We値l haul away, Joe!
 
Chorus:
 
3)  Well, once I knew an English girl. 
     She was fat and lazy (Timmy!)
     Away, haul away. We値l haul away, Joe!
     On, then I met on Irish girl. 
     She damn near drove me crazy (Timmy!)
     Away, haul away. We値l haul away, Joe!
 
Chorus:
 
4)  Pat Murphy was a friend of mine, 
     His wake was last September (Timmy!)
     Away, haul away. We値l haul away, Joe!
     They said I has a real good lime,
     I wish I could remember (Timmy!)
     Away, haul away. We値l haul away, Joe!
 
Chorus:
 
5) St. Patrick was a decend man, 
     He came from gentle people (Timmy!)
     Away, haul away. We値l haul away, Joe!
     He built a church in Dublin Town 
     And on it put a steeple (Timmy!)
     Away, haul away. We値l haul away, Joe!

Chorus:
