No 809. Our Good Ship Sails To-Night.
Our good ship sails to-night, Mary,
And I must haste away;
I see the banner waving,
Out in the little bay—
Long, long I may be absent,
Upon the deep blue sea;
But when I’m gone away, love,
Still, still remember me.
My heart will e’er be true, Mary,
Unto our early vow;
And tho’ the ocean rolls between,
’Twill beat as warm as now,
This little token I will keep,
Whate’er my fate may be;
I’ll wear it near my heart, love,
A priceless gift from thee.
I cannot linger now, Mary,
The shades of evening fall;
The boat is waiting at the beach—
I hear the well-known call.
Then fare-thee-well, my dearest one,
My home is on the sea;
Yet should my life be spared, love,
I’ll come again to thee.
