(chorus)

     Cast her up, now, bring her over (C)
     Shake a leg, fellows, all to-gether now (G F)
     Cast her up, and fetch her over (C Am)
     Bring her in, boys, to Monterey Bay (C G F)

1.  Come from Europe, come from China (C Am)
Past Point Lobos and Ca-brillo (C F)
Bound for Clay Street, bound for Can-ton (C Am)
Bring her in, boys, to Monterey Bay (C G F) (chorus)

2.  Great square-riggers, old Cape Horners
Lateen sails of junks from China
Drying fish and waves of incense
Bring her in, boys, to Monterey Bay (chorus)

3.  To the Chinook, king of salmon
To the Coho, destined to spawn and die
Abalone, squid and mussels
Bring ‘em in, boys, to Monterey Bay (chorus)
