Captain, Captain, tell me true does my sweet Willie sail with you? No my dear, he isn't here for he is drowned in this ocean, dear Answer me, oh give me joy for I love my soldier boy Oh no, lady, he's not here. Dropped down dead in the gulf, my dear Get me a chair to sit upon, and pen and ink, come write it down On every line I will shed a tear: on every verse cry oh, my dear. Captain, Captain, build me a boat, out on these waters I must float Searching for my Willy dear, for he has drowned in this ocean dear
