Bound For South Australia is a sea shanty. As an original worksong it was sung in a variety of trades, including being used by the wool and later the wheat traders who worked the clipper ships between Australian ports and London. In adapted form, it is now a very popular song among folk music performers that is recorded by many artists and is present in many of today's song books.

The Wiggles sing this song on Here Comes A Song.

Song Lyrics

Greg: In South Australia I was born
Heave away, haul away
South Australia round Cape Horn
Bound for South Australia

Haul away, you rolling king
Heave away, haul away
Haul away, oh hear me sing
Bound for South Australia

Anthony: There's just one thing that grieves my mind
Heave away, haul away
To leave me box of toys behind
Bound for South Australia

Greg: Haul away, you rolling king
Heave away, haul away
Haul away, oh hear me sing
Bound for South Australia

The wind was cold, the rain was wet
Heave away, haul away
That wavy trip I won't forget
Bound for South Australia

Haul away, you rolling king
Heave away, haul away
Haul away, oh hear me sing
Bound for South Australia

Anthony: I jumped right up, I jumped right down
Heave away, haul away
I jumped all around that crazy town
Bound for South Australia

Greg: Haul away, you rolling king
Heave away, haul away
Haul away, oh hear me sing
Bound for South Australia
