Chorus:

Roll, Rappahannock, on your way  (G-F-G)

Down to the delta, where the river meets the bay  (G-D-G)

 

1.  Weigh anchor, haul away (on your way)  (G-F-G)

Haul laddies, haul away (where the river meets the bay)  (G-D-G)

 

2.  Man oars, now pull away (on your way)  (G-F-G)

Row, laddies, on your way (where the river meets the bay)  (G-D-G)

 

3.  Set mains'l, shrouds and stays (on your way)  (G-F-G)

Up, stays'l, on your way (where the river meets the bay)  (G-D-G)

 

4.  On, laddies, to the bay (on your way)  (G-F-G)

To Jamestown, on our way (where the river meets the bay)  (G-D-G)
