Words and Music by Missi Hasting and John Baker


When I was young I heard about treasure
that lay in the ground far away from this place
Rubies and gold buried ‘cross river
Grab hold your oars, boy, let’s get to the chase

Standing on the bow you can almost see it through the mist
Rig your oars in the water, boys, I really must insist
Traverse the chopping currents, there is no other way
We should be reaching landfall soon and when I cannot say

Be mindful of the weather, it might lash you to the mast
Time is of the essence and it’s fading hard and fast
Our fortune is there waiting, or so I have been told
Day after day the tempest wails deep in the winter’s cold

Keep on rowing, boys
Keep on rowing, boys
Keep on rowing, boys
or we’ll never make it to the shore

When I am quiet I can still hear it calling
It whispers my name and beckons my mind
Let’s get in the boat and cross o’er the river
As long as you row, boy, my fortune I’ll find

Hold the torch up high so you can see what’s up ahead
Row faster, now, the boat it lists, it’s sinking from the lead
Squint your eyes and hold your breath; you might see the other side
Rig your oars in the water, boys, the river’s deep and wide
