Never been a sailor but I've never settled down
Always for a moment, always for a laugh
I've been too long here, and I'm getting bored and weak
And my true love couldn't find peace with me

I've seen the open seas
Many've sailed before me
And I look down at my feet
Nothing's holding me still

So I shall raise my anchor and leave
Hope that my sails catch some strong winds
Haul away, me boys, for we don't belong here
Say fare thee well, me boys, for we are called by the seas

It's been ten years since I left my own country
And I've seen many faces in many places
Some of them I still hold near

But it was never my intention
It was not part of the plan
To try to build a home
Fall in love and break it off

I've become a dichotomy of sorts

So I shall raise my anchor and leave
Hope that my sails catch some strong winds
Haul away, me boys, for we don't belong here
Say fare thee well, me boys, for we are called by the seas

A girl once believed that she could marry me
And that by the shore our life could be
But when I felt the breeze I took my pay and set to leave
And she said I would never see her with the eyes that I see thee

Because you
My captain could be
We'd never put our anchor down
Through lowlands and the dreich
Oh my true love
It's not to be
So haul away and fare thee well
May one day we meet again

For I shall raise my anchor and leave
Hope that my sails catch some strong winds
Haul away, me boys, for we don't belong here
Say fare thee well, me boys, for we are called by the seas

And we shall raise our anchor and leave
(Raise our anchor and leave)
Hope that our sails catch some strong winds
(Catch some strong winds)
Haul away, me boys, for we don't belong here
Say fare thee well, me boys, for we are called by the seas

For I shall raise my anchor and leave
Hope that my sails catch some strong winds
Haul away, me boys, for we don't belong here
Say fare thee well, me boys, for we are called by the seas
