SONG sheet “the Gold Digger’s Song’
Words Harry Lee
Pull Away Cheerily

Pull away cheerily. Slow or wearily, rocking your cradles boys fast to and fro
Working the hand about, shifting the sand about, seeking for treasures that lie below
Rocking your cradles boys fast and fro
Working the hand about, sifting the sand about, seeking for treasures that lie hid below
Here’s a brave nugget! Like children we hug it
Courage my lads fortune favours the bold!
What are our thoughts about, knocking this quartz about?
Thoughts that we’ll soon send our Parents some gold

Chorus: pull away etc

Dick a four year old digger, works a cradle much bigger
Than his own little self, while Sally she must,
Add her mite to the store by collecting the ore
And filling her apron with bright yellow dust
Rocking your cradle etc

Here’s a mannequin, bringing a pannikin
He scarcely can grasp in his small tiny hand
While tilting his dish up, we merrily fish up
Another supply of the glittering sand
And thus we are cheerily etc
