HOW can my poor heart be gladA
When absent from my sailor ladA
How can I the thought foregoB
He's on the seas to meet the foeB
Let me wander let me roveC
Still my heart is with my loveD
Nightly dreams and thoughts by dayE
Are with him that's far awayE
-
-
Chorus On the seas and far awayE
On stormy seas and far awayE
Nightly dreams and thoughts by dayE
Are aye with him that's far awayE
-
-
When in summer noon I faintF
As weary flocks around me pantG
Haply in this scorching sunH
My sailor's thund'ring at his gunH
Bullets spare my only joyI
Bullets spare my darling boyI
Fate do with me what you mayE
Spare but him that's far awayE
On the seas and far awayE
On stormy seas and far awayE
Fate do with me what you mayE
Spare but him that's far awayE

-
At the starless midnight hourJ
When Winter rules with boundless powerJ
As the storms the forests tearK
And thunders rend the howling airK
Listening to the doubling roarL
Surging on the rocky shoreL
All I can I weep and prayE
For his weal that's far awayE
On the seas and far awayE
On stormy seas and far awayE
All I can I weep and prayE
For his weal that's far awayE
-
-
Peace thy olive wand extendM
And bid wild War his ravage endM
Man with brother Man to meetN
And as a brother kindly greetN
Then may heav'n with prosperous galesO
Fill my sailor's welcome sailsO
To my arms their charge conveyE
My dear lad that's far awayE
On the seas and far awayE
On stormy seas and far awayE
To my arms their charge conveyE
My dear lad that's far awayE
