Always been one of my favorites for Bruce Springsteen, and it was a major highlight when I saw him at Jazz Fest. And he officially release his entire Jazz Fest set on YouTube already, but here’s a music video from The Seeger Sessions where he recorded this song.

Chorus

I thought I heard the captain say
Pay me my money down
Tomorrow is our sailing day
Pay me my money down
Pay me, pay me, pay me my money down
Pay me or go to jail
Pay me my money down
Soon as that boat cleared the bar
Pay me my money down
He knocked me down with a spar
Pay me my money down
Pay me, pay me, pay me my money down
Pay me or go to jail
Pay me my money down
