The Sad Sailing Song

THE SAD SAILING SONG

It always reminds me, always reminds me
When I see a ship, go sailing by

I saw a ship, go sailing by
And as I watched I had to cry
For memories came back to me
About my girl, who went to sea

It was in May she went away
To Spain she went, on holiday
She never came, back home to me

The girl I loved, was drowned at sea


She really meant the world to me
Her face I can’t forget
I've cried more tears than anyone
But you ain't seen nothing yet

I just can’t go on living
Now that she has gone
My life will never be the same
I’ll always be alone
For I’ll never find another girl like her
Even in a hundred years
Cry, cry, cry, is all that I can do
I’ll flood the whole world with my tears
It always reminds me, always reminds me
When I see a ship, go sailing by

I saw a ship, go sailing by
And as I watched I had to cry
For memories came back to me
About my girl, who went to sea

It was in May she went away
To Spain she went, on holiday
She never came, back home to me

The girl I loved, was drowned at sea


It always reminds me, always reminds me
When I see a ship, go sailing by
