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
