The Men of the Robert Shaw Chorale

Lowlands

Lowlands, lowlands, away my John
Oh my own mother she wrote to me
My dollar and a half a day

She wrote to me to come home from sea
Lowlands, lowlands away my John
She wrote to me to come home from sea
My dollar and a half a day

A dollar a day is a hoosier's pay
Lowlands, lowlands a way my John
A dollar a day is a hoosier's pay
My dollar and a half a day

Lowlands, lowlands, away my John

All in the night my true love came
Lowlands, lowlands away my John
All in the night my true love came
My dollar and a half a day

She came to me all in my sleep

Lowlands, lowlands away my John
She came to me all in my sleep
My dollar and a half a day

And then I knew my love was dead
Lowlands, lowlands away my John
And then I knew my love was dead
My dollar and a half a day

Lowlands, lowlands away my John
My dollar and a half a day

My John - a crew of merchant seamen were
often referred to as 'the Johns'.
Hoosier - They are complaining about the
pay of cotton hoosiers (think hosiery) in
Mobile, Alabama

Usually regarded as a capstan or pumping shanty. Lowlands could be one of several places around the world. One source suggests the song in the sighing of the wind and the throbbing of the restless ocean translated into melody.
