Midnight on the Stormy Deep
It was midnight on the stormy deep My solitary watch I'd keep And think of her I'd left behind And ask if she'd be true and kind I never shall forget the day That I was forced to go away In silence there my head she'd rest And pressed me to her loving breast Oh Willy don't go back to sea There's other girls as good as me But none can love you true as I Pray don't go where the bullets fly The deep deep sea may us divide And I may be some other's bride But still my thoughts will sometime times stray To thee when thou art far away I never have proved false to thee The heart I gave was true as time But you have proven untrue to me I can no longer call thee mine Then fare-thee-well I'd rather make My home upon some icy lake Where the southern sun refused to shine Then to trust a love so false as thine
