It was on last Sunday evening
Just about the hour of three
When my darling started to leave me
And sail on the deep blue sea
He promised to write me a letter,
He promised to write to me;
And I haven't heard from my darling,
Who is sailing on the deep blue sea.
My mother is dead and buried
My father's forsaken me
And I have no one to love me
But the sailor on the deep blue sea
"Oh, captain, can you tell me,
Can you tell me where he may be?"
"Oh yes, my little maiden,
He's drownded in the deep blue sea."
Farewell to friends and relations .
This is the last you'll see of me,
I'm going to end my troubles
By drowning in the deep blue sea.
