Lyrics:
Oh, th' times was hard an' th' wages low,
Leave 'er, Johnnie, leave 'er!
An' th' grub was bad an' th' gales did blow,
An' it's time for us t' leave 'er!

Chorus:
Leave 'er, Johnnie, leave 'er!
O-oh, leave 'er, Johnnie, leave 'er!
For th' voy'ge is done, an' th' gales do blow,
An' it's time for us t' leave 'er!

I thought I heard th' Old Man say,
Leave 'er, Johnnie, leave 'er!
Ye can go a-shore an' take yer pay,
An' it's time for us t' leave 'er!  (Chorus)

Oh, her stern was foul an' th' v'yage was long.
Leave 'er, Johnnie, leave 'er!
An' th' winds was bad, an' th' gales was strong.
An' it's time for us t' leave 'er!  (Chorus)

An' we'll leave 'er tight an' we'll leave 'er trim.
Leave 'er, Johnnie, leave 'er!
A-an' heave th' hungry pa-acket in.
For it's time for us t' leave 'er!  (Chorus)

Oh, leave 'er, Johnnie, leave 'er with a grin.
Leave 'er, Johnnie, leave 'er!
For there's many a worser we've sailed in.
An' it's time for us t' leave 'er!  (Chorus)

An' now it's time t' say good-bye.
Leave 'er, Johnnie, leave 'er!
For th' old pierhead's a-drawin' nigh.
An' it's time for us t' leave 'er!  (Chorus)
