When The Shantyboy Comes Down
Canadian Traditional/Folk Song
When the shantyboy comes down, in his pockets fifty pounds
He will look around some pretty girl to find.
If he finds her not too shy, with a dark and rolling eye
The poor shantyboy is well pleased in his mind.
When the landlady comes in, she is neat and very trim
She is like a bright and lovely evening star.
If she finds him in good trim, she will always wait on him
And from one to two they'll sit up in the bar.
So the shantyboy goes on till his money is all gone
And the landlady begins to fret.
So he says, "You need not fret, I will pay my honest debt,
Bid adieu to the girl I had in town."
There's a gang in command, so the old folks understand
And it is for the back woods they are bound.
With a whiskey and a song we will shove our bark along
Bid adieu to the girl I had in town.
Repeat last verse
