The Hog-Eye Man

This song is by Hein & Oss and appears on the album Haul Away - Seemannslieder (1969).

Oh, go fetch me down my riding cane
For I'm goin' to see my darlin' Jane!

And a hog-eye railroad nigger
With his hog-eye row
The boat ashore
And a hog-eye, oh!
She wants the hog-eye man!

Oh, the hog-eye man is the man for me
He was raised way down in Tennessee!

And a hog-eye railroad nigger
With his hog-eye row
The boat ashore
And a hog-eye, oh!
She wants the hog-eye man!

Oh, the hog's-eye men are all they go
When they come down to San Francisco!

And a hog-eye railroad nigger
With his hog-eye row
The boat ashore
And a hog-eye, oh!
She wants the hog-eye man!

Now, it's: "Who's been here, since I've been gone?"
A railroad nigger with his sea-boots on!

And a hog-eye railroad nigger
With his hog-eye row
The boat ashore
And a hog-eye, oh!
She wants the hog-eye man!

Oh, Sally in the garden is picking peas
Her golden hair hanging down to her knees!

And a hog-eye railroad nigger
With his hog-eye row
The boat ashore
And a hog-eye, oh!
She wants the hog-eye man!

Oh, Jenny's in the garden shelling peas
A bold Jack Tar sitting on her knee!

And a hog-eye railroad nigger
With his hog-eye row
The boat ashore
And a hog-eye, oh!
She wants the hog-eye man!

Now, where have you been gone so long
You Yankee Tar with your sea-boots on?

And a hog-eye railroad nigger
With his hog-eye row
The boat ashore
And a hog-eye, oh!
She wants the hog-eye man!

We're a hog's-eye ship and a hog's-eye crew
With a hog's-eye mate and a skipper too!

And a hog-eye railroad nigger
With his hog-eye row
The boat ashore
And a hog-eye, oh!
She wants the hog-eye man!
