Santy Anno

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Played by Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter at Brigid Meier's 16th birthday party in 1961.

Not yet checked against what Jerry sang - this is one traditional version of the lyrics.

We're sailin' 'cross the river from Liverpool
Heave away, Santy Anno
Around Cape Horn to 'Frisco Bay
Way out in Californio

So, heave her up and away we'll go
Heave away, Santy Anno
Heave her up and away we'll go
Way out in Californio

There's plenty of gold, so I've been told
Heave away, Santy Anno
Plenty of gold, so I've been told
Way out in Californio

So, heave her up and away we'll go
Heave away, Santy Anno
Heave her up and away we'll go
Way out in Californio

Well, back in the days of forty-nine
Heave away, Santy Anno
Back in the days of the good old times
Way out in Californio

So, heave her up and away we'll go
Heave away, Santy Anno
Heave her up and away we'll go
Way out in Californio
