Jackie left on a cold, dark night
Telling me he'd be home
Sailed the seas for a hundred years
Leaving me all alone
And I've been dead for twenty years
I've been washing the sand 
With my ghostly tears
Searching the shores for my Jackie-oh

I remember the day the young man came
He said, "your Jackie's gone
We got lost in the rain"
And I ran to the beach
And laid me down

"You're all wrong", I said
And they stared at the sand
"That man knows that sea 
Like the back of his hand
He'll be back some time
laughing at you"

And I've been waiting all this time
For my man to come 
Take his hand in mine
And lead me away
To unseen shores

I've been washing the sand 
With my salty tears
Searching the shore 
For these long years
And I'll walk the seas forever more
Till I find my Jackie oh 
Till I find my Jackie oh 
Till I find my Jackie oh 
Jackie oh
Jackie oh
Jackie oh
