Midnight on the stormy deep

Was midnight on the stormy deep
My solitary watch I keep
But to think of her I left behind
And saked if she'd be true and kind

I never shall forget the day
That I was forced to go away
In silence there my head she'd rest
And hold me to her loving breast

Oh Willie, don't go back to sea
There's other girls as good as me
But none can love you true as I
Pray don't go where the bullets fly

The deep, deep sea may us divide
And I may be some other's bride
But still my thoughts will sometimes stray
To thee when thou art far away

I never have proved false to thee
The heart I gave was true as thine
But you have proved untrue to me
I can no longer call thee mine

Then fare thee well, I'd rather make
My home upon some icy lake
Where the southern sun refuse to shine
Than to trust a love so false as thine
