Lonnie Donegan - Chesapeake Bay lyrics

'Round the bend I hear the chuggin' of the steamboat dear Heading here for this pier You'll catch it if you hurry don't you ever fear Its that Old Dominion line We'll she seems real pretty as she hugs the shore Heading for Baltimore Everybody's yearning To hear the paddles churnin' She's the Queen of the Chesapeake Bay Come on Miss Nancy put your best dress on Come on Miss Nancy 'fore that steamboat's gone The banjos are strumming the same old tune Up on the deck there's a place to spoon Settle down close 'neath the silvery moon Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay Come on Captain we must catch that boat We can't swim and listen we can't float The banjos are strumming the same old tune Up on the deck there's a place to spoon Settle down close 'neath the silvery moon Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay
