"Sailor Boy" as written by Dave Bartholomew and Antoine Domino....
Twas on one dark and stormy night
The snow was on the ground
The sailor boy was at his post
His ship was outward bound

His sweetheart standing by his side
She mourned a bitter tear
Though as he pressed her to his side
He whispered in her ear

Farewell, my own true love
This parting gives me pain
And you will be my guiding star
Till I return again

And then I think of you, my love
While storms are raging high
Then oh, sweetheart, remember me
Your faithful sailor boy

'Twas sad to say the ship returned
Without the sailor boy
For he had died while on the sea
His flag was held most high

Farewell, my own true love
This parting gives me pain
And you will be my guiding star
Till I return again

And as his shipmate steps on shore
To tell that he was dead
The letter that he gave to her
These words it sadly read

Farewell, my own true love
On earth we'll meet no more
So may we meet in heaven above
Where parting is no more
