W:It was pleasant and delightful on a bright summer's morn,
W:When the fields and the meadows were covered in corn,
W:There were blackbirds and thrushes singing on every tree,
W:And the larks they sang melodious at the dawning of the day,
W:And the larks they sang melodious, and the larks they sang melodious,
W:And the larks they sang melodious at the dawning of the day.
W:
W:A sailor and his true love were walking one day.
W:Said the sailor to his true love, "I'm bound far away.
W:I'm bound for the West Indies where the loud cannons roar,
W:I am bound to leave my Nancy, she's the girl that I adore,
W:I am bound to leave my Nancy, I am bound to leave my Nancy,
W:I am bound to leave my Nancy, she's the girl that I adore.
W:
W:A ring from off her finger she instantly drew,
W:Saying, "Take this, my dearest Willie, and my heart will go too."
W:And as he stood embracing her from her eyes the tears fell,
W:Saying, "May I go along with you?" "Oh no, my love, farewell."
W:Saying, "May I go along with you?" Saying, "May I go along with you?"
W:Saying, "May I go along with you?" "Oh no, my love, farewell."
W:
W:"So fare thee well Nancy, now I must away,
W:For the topsail is hoisted and the anchor is weighed,
W:And the ship she lies waiting for the next flowing tide,
W:And if ever I return again, I will make you my bride,
W:And if ever I return again, and if ever I return again,
W:And if ever I return again, I will make you my bride."
