Going away to far away lands
I'm going away for a while
I'll return to you my love
Oh I'll go ten thousand miles

The sun will dry the ocean
Heaven will cease to be
The world will lose its motion my love
If I prove false to thee

Who's gonna shoe your pretty little feet
Who's gonna glove your hand
Who's gonna kiss your sweet ruby lips
While I'm in a far away land

Father will shoe my pretty little feet
And my brother will glove my hand
And you can kiss my sweet ruby lips
When you return again


Who's gonna brush your long yellow hair
Who's gonna pay your fee
Who's gonna father those sweet little babes
While I'm on the raging sea

Mother will brush my long yellow hair
Daddy has paid my fee
There won't be any sweet little babies
While you're away from me


Night wind go tell my sailor man
I'll be waiting in the day
I long to feel his warm embrace
In this cold and hardy year


If I prove false to thee
