Comment and vote folks!Lyrics:
We were forty miles from Albany forget it I never shall
what a terrible storm we had one night on the E'ri'e canal

Oh the E'ri'e was arising and the gin was getting low,
and I scarcely think we'll get a drink 'till we get to Buffalo,
'till we get to Buffalo".

The barge was full of barley and the crew was full of rye,
the Captain he looked down on me with a ricked wicked eye.

Oh the E'ri'e was arising and the gin was getting low,
and I scarcely think we're gonna get a little drink 'till we get to Buffalo,
'till we get to Buffalo.

Well the Captain he stood up on the deck with a spy glass in his hand,
and the fog was so god darn thick that he couldn't spy the land.

Oh the E'ri'e was arising and the gin was getting low,
and I scarcely think we're gonna get a little drink 'till we get to Buffalo, 'till we get to Buffalo.

Now two days out from Syracuse the vessel struck a shoal,
we liked all been floundered on a chuckalauka coal.

Oh the E'ri'e was arising and the gin was getting low,
and I scarcely think we're gonna get a little drink 'till we get to Buffalo,
'till we get to Buffalo.

The cook she was a grand ole gal. She wore a ragged dress.
We hoisted her upon the pole as a signal of distress.

Oh the E'ri'e was arising and the gin was getting low,
and I scarcely think we're gonna get a little drink 'till we get to Buffalo,
'till we get to Buffalo.

Now the Captain he got married, the cook she went to jail,
and I'm the only son of a 'sea cook' left to tell the tale".

Oh the E'ri'e was arising and the gin was getting low,
and I scarcely think we'll get a drink 'till we get to Buffalo,
'till we get to Buffalo...
Oh the E'ri'e was arising and the gin was getting low,
and I scarcely think we're gonna get a little drink 'till we get to city of Buffalo.
Till we get to Buffalo".
