GUEST,John from "Elsie`s Band" Lyr Req: Haul Away Joe (Leadbelly) (25) RE: Lyr Req: Haul Away Joe (Leadbelly) 10 Feb 21


When I was with "Four Square Circle" our version contains the following:
"Louis was the King of France before the revolution.
Way, Haul away............
The he got his head cut off which spoiled his constitution.
Way, Haul Awy...........

When I was a little boy so my mother told me
Way, Haul Away...........
That If I didn`t kiss the girls my lips would all grow mouldy.
Way, Haul Away........."

Our full recording, a little non-P.C., at the BBC(circa 1966/67) can be heard on "SoundCloud" under John Hills tracks.
