Leave Her, Johnny is a Sea Shanty in which the crew would communicate disapproval of their living and working conditions on board. The "Her" mentioned throughout the song is referring to a ship rather than a woman. This shanty would typically be saved for the end of a long voyage in which the sailors sing of leaving the ship.

I thought I heard the old man say,
"Leave her, Johnny, leave her"
Tomorrow you will get your pay
and it's time for us to leave her.

Leave her, Johnny, leave her
Oh, leave her, Johnny, leave her.
For the voyage is long and the winds don't blow
and it's time for us to leave her.

Oh, the wind was foul, and the sea ran high.
"Leave her, Johnny, leave her"
She shipped it green, and none went by
and it's time for us to leave her.

I hate to sail on this rotten tub
"Leave her, Johnny, leave her"
No grog allowed and rotten grub
and it's time for us to leave her.

"Leave her, Johnny, leave her"
No grog allowed and rotten grub
and it's time for us to leave her.
and it's time for us to leave her.

Oh, the wind was foul, and the sea ran high.
"Leave her, Johnny, leave her"
She shipped it green, and none went by
and it's time for us to leave her.

and it's time for us to leave her.
