lyrics

Up She Rises

When I sailed down to Parramatta town
where the river runs a streak of brown
all the shanty lasses they gathered round
and with a row and a roar we’d make this sound

With an up she rises
Up she rises
Up she rises from the bed
With an up she rises
Up she rises
Whiskey worn about the head

Took a high born lady for a whirl
across the floor her hair unfurled
Knew I’d caught the wink beneath her curl
when we awoke in the kitchen with the serving girl

Led the parson’s daughter to the steps
of her father’s house, her sins confessed
Drunk her holy wine and thought me blessed
when I knelt at the altar neath her Sunday best

Met a black masked maiden’s dark eyed stare
down a lonely road she robbed me bare
when she drew her guns, a lovely pair
then laid me down and left me there
