Tradewinds take me home
to the land where I belong
Tradewinds blow me home
nevermore to ever roam

My sweetheart’s name is Sally Brown
she used to live in Nassau town
in a jealous fight I shot a man
now I have to run away to a far off land

So I roamed and I roamed for a long long time
trying to find peace of mind
Oh how I long for my Sally Brown
but she’s far away in Nassau town

Tradewinds take me home
to the land where I belong
Tradewinds blow me home
nevermore to ever roam

I traveled far and I traveled wide
and still I found no place to hide
so I returned to meet my fate
in the gloomy jail now I wait

My running away made no sense
the judges said it was self defense
so I settled down with my Sally Brown
and we live together in Nassau town

Tradewinds take me home
to the land where I belong
Tradewinds blow me home
nevermore to ever roam
